Vanagon – Small Car stainless header failure

Was installed new about a year ago, in a EJ25 powered syncro. I suppose disappointing would be one way to describe it.

    Doesn’t look good.
    How many miles on it?
    Strange to have that crack with the flat between those 2 pipes.
    I could understand after 5 or 6 years….

      not many miles, I’m guessing less than 8k. The replacement SC header did have a thicker welded brace and perhaps the new tubing was beefier (did not measure).

    It was sold as a SS pipe?
    Disappointing not the exact word I have in mind

      Yes, and it is some sort of stainless, weakly magnetic.
