I agree with the maybe EL XR8 serie2 or GT etc, and I am guessing you have found a bargain somewhere :)

They are definitely not fixed up stock headers, stock are shocking, the stockers look like some primary school child squeezed some pipe together in a vice and jammed it into a hole that is to small for it, then put some "daggy" weld inside the hole instead of outside, making them worse than the old cast iron manifolds.

I never did work out why they did it, surely a cast manifold wouldn't have cost any more or paying the monkeys a few more peanuts to not jam it into a to small hole and weld it inside.

the guy who had these say they are stock and come off an EB......so i hope his EB are the E7 heads. Not to worry! So where do they connect at the bottom, that looks as tho the same set up as stock. Or are aftermarkets like that too???

I do not know exactly what Sprint or EB GT headers looked like but unless they were removed and ceramic coated those headers are not either of those, EL series II XR8 headers were all stainless and ceramic coated, I remember speaking to the mob at a trade show that coated them as they couldn't see the point to using stainless steel as the coating would have protected mild steel from rusting/burning out etc. ( :lol: Ford could have saved some bucks)

They are definately EL GT style headers.

Not ELGT or EL 2 XR8 headers. I've got them on my car and they don't look like that.
