Titanium: lightweight AND strong? Whatever...

Looks like it's going to be an expensive replacement. My question is this: So...are there any aftermarket headers that are affordable and will fit up with the stock WR muffler? I'm sure a replacement OEM header is going to start at somewhere around $300.

only costs about 10 bucks, plus beer.

If you have 2 tubes one of Steel and the other titanium, with the same diameter and wall thickness, the titanium tube will not be as strong. The titanium tube will be 1/2 the weight.

motomans site has some great stuff, but the same rules do not apply to titanium. steel reaches a yield point when heated, so that it gives. the internal pressure you apply with compressed air pushes out the dents. titanium does not yield when heated, you will ruin the item before it decides to yield. for what its worth.
