Doug Thorley header 511y-1 2.7L w EGR

Doug Thorley 511y-1-c header for 2.7L I4 (3RZ-FE) w/ EGR. Came off a 2000. Purchased September 1012. Stamped with date 9/04/2012. Had a shop install these and I simply didn't like the new sound. Ran them for about a month and chose to re-install the factory piece. The finish isn't facory-new but no discoloration. No cracks, warps. All mating surfaces will be clean and ready to install. No hardware included.

Paid $330, asking $250.
Located in NW PA

That looks like the full header to me...
This is a "mini header" that bolts directly to the factory front pipe.

sorry for the delay. as far as I know they fit only 2.7L with EGR. I still have them, but after some consideration I'm going to hold on to them and maybe try to wrap them in thermotec after the winter. to anyone thinking of purchasing this header for the 1st gen 2.7L, do some serious shopping and asking around. i absolutely hated the sound they made. it was so nerve-racking i couldnt even hear the exhaust tone at the tailpipe, just the fuzzz/hissing sound this piece put out under the hood. they appear to be very well-made, and nice looking as well, but i couldn't put up with it. i mean they ring like a bell when you tap them, its no wonder they make such a racket. thanks and sorry again i'll see about removing this thread

ALSO: in regards to my post above, it might seem like i just had a leak somewhere. this is not the case. i initially had them installed at a reputable garage, then re-installed them on my own. no difference. i put the factory manifold back on and my frustrations are gone.
