    Header options for MIP Pipe?

    Whatta ya know, took my 2.5 T-Maxx out yesterday for a couple hours for the first time this spring and didn't break a thing.

    Took it out today and took it off one jump and landed on engine. Broke the motor mount and my MIP Header. This is what I have: link

    Well I see the header has been discontinued and ebay has nothing. What are my options for replacing this header so I can still use my pipe?

    You could use the factory header you just would need to make a new pipe hanger cause it won't be in the same position.

    If it were me I'd keep an eye out, the headers still pop up once in a while. You could also try contact MIP directly and see if they can help you out. Often mfrs hold onto some of their discontinued items for Customer Service purposes, this would be one of them....

    Probably gonna do that. I still have the stock stuff. I found a couple online but that header is like $30. I don't wanna pay that much.

    oh cool. I didn't think the stock header would work, I may try that. No since wasting a perfectly good pipe, and it looks cooler then the stock one anyway.

    It's copper tubing, TIg welding it is a bit overkill, any oxy acetelyne setup witha medium brazing rod could handle that job.

    Go to an exhaust/muffler shop they could probably hook you up.
