Yes,they are 1 5/8".Now for a real trip.I called the JHC customer service dept. today,after my first post,just to arrange my shipping,and to let them make a note that they were on thier way.The service guy tells me "You damaged them when installing them,it's not covered under our warrenty."!!I told him "B.S.,I asked for a set of headers that would fit without having to dent them,and these wouldn't fit with out the dent!" I called the JHC tech line BEFORE I ordered these because this was a concern of mine,and was told that if they needed to be "tweaked" with a hammer,to just send them back for a free re-coating.I got my way,they agreed to re-coat them,but after going through this today I would tell anybody who goes with JHC to test fit first,then have them coated.This is why it also pays to keep track of names of salespeople you get info from on tech lines.If you have a problem down the road with a product,it seems like you have more leverage if you say "I talked to Joe,and he said..."I always keep my notes!
So, if I go with the long primary headers and they need to be "tweaked", do you work the steel hot or cold? In other words, doesn't cold working steel (whacking it with a big hammer)weaken it more than hot working (controlled heat and quinch)would?
