I got this from them last year for 50 bucks, $73 shipped. I love the sound and quality is nothing like what that guy described. The flanges are not mild steel and you can't see that ugly welding anywhere on mine. Looks all mirror after the salt season. Maybe they got cheap , I'm sure they import their stuff from diff. places they don't actually manufacture all the products so you don't know what you're really buying... and for 50 bucks for that rear exhaust portion I frankly don't care what happens with it but I wouldn't sell it for 200 bucks if you asked me. :)



That's how it looks after 7 months on my car. I took it off to paint my whole exhaust system in high-heat paint, several coats except this beauty.

I was just saying I bought their product and I didn't ran into any problems... and the product gets my vote... you'd think I really care about that guy with the blown civic... and I really don't care about ssautochrome either... screw em I got my muffler just when I was looking for one. Since you seem to have an opinion about their stuff what exactly did you buy and went wrong?

I remember I asked the seller if it comes with a midpipe on ebay... and this guy emailed me back the next day with: "NO MIDPIPE !!!" lol

Then they had a bolt-on ss cat converter for 91-94 sentra up for auction for $21 buy it now... it looked like a perfect fitment for my car... LOL and I had the nerve to ask them if it'll pass emissions in IL ... I never got any answer on that one. I still like the original calsonic catalytic better anyways.

That has got to be the worst customer service I have ever seen, even if they did make good products I still wouldn't buy from them.

150 dollar header for the Spec V compared to HotShot, NISMO and AEBS which are all 350+...if that doesnt raise an eyebrow there, people deserve to get ripped up the ass.

there is a reason why you can buy a header for 120 bucks.. trust me, i bought the obx header from ssautochrome before i knew this website, it didn't really provide any gains and it didnt fit... i emailed them 5 times and left a message on their message board on their website.. no answer from any...

I may have worded that poorly. I meant raise an eyebrow at SS...not HotShot, NISMO, or AEBS. If the SS was as good as the others, I wouldnt have wasted 5 months trying to find an AEBS. :p

wait...so did the company actually respond in the manner described on the website? i can be the website is slanted, but if those are quotes i'd say hes got a point.

Well, at the same time he probably paid about 300 bucks for a turbo header and downpipe...if someone is that stupid to expect a high quality part for that price, they deserve to get ripped off.

well thats the problem.. most people think you get just as good quality and power from these generic rip offs because some look the same and what not, but no one will test the header or other product

Hello!
I can't say something bad about SSautochrome...
I bought a header there 2 years ago...
O.K.,... the chrome is really not the best, but I think it's a good header...
And that for US$180 shipped...
In Germany (I come from Austria) a header for the GA16DE cost
nearly US$1500...
And I must say, I love my NX1600, but I am not interested to buy a
header for US$1500 when I can have nearly the same one for US$180...
Nice greetings
Markus

I've actually been reading up on the different grades of stainless steel recently. Summed up simply, it is likely that if you have a NA header that no problem will exist because of the lesser heat.
