Kook's header repair...?

Any one have any in put or info on what this might cost to repair? Found a really good deal on a complete set up (headers, mid-pipe, o2 extensions, gaskets)

Yea wouldn't cost you much at all, you could probably have the whole tube replaced for pretty cheap as well if you have the inside hook up with a shop. How much are they asking for the complete set? Is it catted or non catted? Just trying to get an idea to see if it's worth the time and hassle.

Wow, It looks like it melted.
I am sure a welder can patch that up pretty quick.

$399 is the asking for the set up, it looks like it was catted at one time and someone weld in some tubes to replace the cats, but the set up looks complete. Unfortunately I don't have any hook ups with any exhaust guys but it doesn't sound like it would cost that much by the feed back you guys are giving.

They are not that bad to weld on. I purchased a used set from a vendor who failed to mention some cracks around the flanges. I welded them up myself.

I saw the same deal, to me it looked like a it got pulled off a wreckage by looking at other pictures on the sale, there's a few other blemishes but that's the only real visible damage, seemed like a good deal about $70 more and you still have a pair of headers for less than the price of some obx's, was thinking about getting them also but didn't pull the trigger I told my wife one mod at a time, and just spent a bit on the trinity, so I have to wait, maybe I need to get her another purse to get the extra mod permit lol
