Good morning everyone! Can anyone provide recommendations for companies that build headers for 914/4's? Other than Tangerine Racing, who else do you recommend?

He's the guy who just purchased the 914-6GT that ran LeMans so you can be assured he knows what he's doing with 914's. - And a super nice guy.

Tangerine Racing is definitely on the list, I just wasn't sure who else was out there. I'm not interested in having heat, I actually would like to remove all parts for heat. I never intend to drive it in cold weather.

Got a couple PM's about my tangerine system, sorry it's not for sale and if it was I'd list it in the for sale section. It will likely end up in the wife's or my sons 914.

Bought a set of MSDS -- Marty's company.
Ordered them the Friday before Memorial Day, and they showed up last Friday, spent the weekend priming and painting, ready to install.

He even welded in a o2 bung for me, at no cost.

Can't wait to hear it run, maybe tomorrow evening, it will freak the neighbors out,cu I ain't got no muffler yet.

I was thinking of taking a cruise up to see Billy Boat, and see what he can do. He bent a J-Pipe and complete exhaust for my Acura T/L and man did that make a difference. Only thing he ain't cheap. But what the heck, you gotta pay for quality.

Mention 914world to Marty and he will give you a 10pct disc. covered the shipping from LA to Phoenix.

Very nice! Can you post a video of it running once you get it started? Who is Billy Boat?

I will do that.

Billy Boat is a high performance exhaust system builder, he is based here in Phoenix.
Builds some really cool exhaust systems. Started out building 911 systems, but now builds for many cars.

Billy Boat moved out east years ago and believe he has since passed. Some of his former employees still are making some of the products. They likely make the worst -6 heat exchangers ever made as they don't produce heat in southern CA (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) don't know if they make anything for the 4cyl..

I am seriously considering making 4cyl heat exchangers.
