Id start with some FRPP headers in stainless if I were you, just flip them and use that as your starting point

I ended up using accufabs mid lengths for my build, but I required a 3" bolt pattern for my heads. Other wise I would have used the FRPP stuff.

I used a hot side from BG and made my own cold side. A GOOD bandsaw is a must. I didn't have a welder so I marked and taped (blue painters tape) all my joints and trucked them to a buddy. Having a welder or simply the means to just tack weld would have been so much better.

From my little experience it would be no problem building a kit from scratch.

What about a cut off saw, for the diy'er?

work alright or is a bandsaw a must?

are we talking a little handheld or a full size stand up bandsaw?

... I did rotate the wg and add a downpipe to it to get the exhaust out from around the motor / turbo.
