I waited until Monday and tried to order some OBX headers to be in Va by Friday and no where I can find has them in stock. I'm going back to Charlotte this weekend and have a lift and help to install my headers. If I can't find a deal I will have to suck it up and go to Kooks and lay down close to $1500. Anybody body got any ideas on where I can get some descent priced headers in the next few days?

There's a guy selling a set new in box on craigslist in Martinsburg. Feel like taking a road trip? It's just past Frederick. http://baltimore.craigslist.org/pts/3707523633.html

Do I get a finder's fee, lol?

And there are multiple "Buy it Now" offers on Ebay. I only opened one of the many listings and they said they had 4 available.

Make sure to buy GM MLS gaskets. You can get them from any dealership. The ones that come with OBX headers are a joke (they are literally made of paper).

OK, I got another option for you. 18URSVT from another forum is selling his car. I know him personally, he's a great guy. He had bought B&B headers, and exhaust and hadn't installed them. You may be able to buy the headers, if that's all you need. Since you're local, it would save him shipping and hassle vs. other sellers. Here's a link to his listing: http://ls1tech.com/forums/cadillac-cts-v-classifieds/1642728-07-thunder-gray-cts-v.html[COLOR="Silver"]

NC-V is close to Charlotte, he may be able to get something and have it there for you if you PM him.

What about pacesetter headers from Amazon --> http://www.amazon.com/PaceSetter-72C2272-Header-Cadillac-2004-07/dp/B003X6EGT4 (non coated is about $140 less if you want them instead), pay the $80 for a Prime Membership if you don't have it already and you'll get 2 day shipping all year on Amazon purchases for your $80 investment - $550ish shipped.

Damn Hamstar, your connected man! I appreciate all the help guys! I ended up talking to Julie and Brandon at Maryland Speed and they are getting me Kooks non-coated with non-catted mids shipped to my Dads shop by Friday for $1k. Didnt think that was a bad deal. Amazon or ebay would have been an option but if you look at the fine print it all says allow 2-3 days to process the order, and they were all in Cali. I spent $500 more than I anticipated, but I got the best, and will get it fast! Thanks again guys!! :thumbsup:

So sorry dude, I read Charlottesville, VA while all this time it was Charlotte, NC.

Not well-connected, just read a lot of classifieds, lol. Glad you got a good deal. I'd order from Maryland Speed more, but I'd have to pay sales tax cause they're local.

I don't think you're far off, it sounded like he was local to you (VA) at least and making a weekend road trip to do the overhaul in Charlotte, therefore wanting the parts shipped or local to VA before make the drive down?

LOL - Just sayin', you weren't the only one that thought he was in VA 8-D

You will be better off with the Kooks setup anyways.

Thanks for the reply, but I got a set of Kooks 1-7/8 with mid pipes shipped to the house for $1000.
