I purchased a set of headers and mid-pipe from mighty mouse.  The shipping was very fair and fast and the headers were exactly as described in the add.  I would recommend him to anyone.

Thanks MM!

As luck would have it... I had a Harley fender delivered not long before those sold.  If it wasnt for that ...- shipping headers is normally a real B.. I.. T... C.. H.

Glad the H pipe arrived in good shape.  When I brought it into FEDEX in nothing but shrink wrap and tape the lady looked at me a little cross eyed.

It was a little funny looking at a h-pipe leaning against the house when I pulled up.  There where no question about what that package was.

I am going to change my feedback on Mighty Mouse.  The headers ended up being for an automatic when advertised as a stick.  They would not work on my combo and I was told that my shop and I need to think outside of the box to fix the issue.  Nathan offered to refund my money if I shipped them back in 100% the same condition.  (the headers had been clearanced so no return)  Either way I will re-sell them correctly as a longtube for an automatic and eat the shipping. 

I won't ever do business with Nathan again.

Scott, can you share pictures of Nathan's old heads on the car and the new one's your getting?  Are you getting the same brand and size?  I've had to route a clutch cable around headers and am curious what your case looked like.  Thanks.

Here are my pics.  I will look up the add.  I ended up getting a set of RCI simicustom headers with the same spec. (1 3/4. 3"collectors.)

I've dealt with much worse on my own car.  Do you want to save time, money, and use them?  I have an idea.

Bummer.  I made a simple bracket out of some scrap I had sitting around to pull the cable WAY farther around the primaries than what those photos show.  Been that way for over ten years now.  Cost was free and about 20 minutes of my time and still running strong.

But, the new headers have already taken care of your problem.

I had to do something similar on my 84 GT. It had Flowtech long tubes that required re-routing the cable and modifying the bracket.

You offer a guy his money back even when he had the headers for months, and you still get negative feedback.   Dissapointed

I was told by the guys at MAC themselves that the headers would fit either auto or manual.

I showed your photos to all the mods on this board w/o them knowing the back story (me being the seller).  They all said the same thing... a little work and they would work fine.

I mocked them up on my junk, with my combo, and the cable was close but easily workable.

Scott,

Your communication skills need work.

Heat/header shield wrap on that section of clutch cable and a tension strap to prevent direct clutch cable-to-header contact. BTSTDT many times even with my junk. A little low cost setup correction caused you to spend more $$ than necessary.

I would really think about changing "shop services provider" other than provide negative feedback to a classifieds seller due to your shop gross incompetence. And before you get on that bandwagon, my response has absolutely nothing to do with the fact he too is an administrator here. I have also purchased from Nathan and .... any problem regarding my dealings with him, would also be posted here. So far, he has more than exceeded my own expectations by making sure I got what I paid for.

I sure hope the shop that told you those headers wouldn't work didn't try to sell you a new set of headers.

Iím sure anything can be made to work, but I purchased these as a header designed for a stick.  The add said stick so I bought them.  Mac clearly has 2 different parts (one stick one automatic).  Nathan you offered to refund my money if they are exactly as shipped.  (they were clearanced so no refund) and either way Iím out the shipping cost both ways.  My negative feedback is because the header are not made for stick and while they could have been made to work that were not designed for a stick.  If you don't know what you have you should list that you donít know.  The headers are in good shape so I can resell them, but im still out almost $100 in shipping.
