Looking to pick up XB12 exhaust headers, suitable for a 2004 engine, also looking for a front engine mount for same and a clutch inspection cover (bell shaped cover).

Whatever parts you get 2nd hand get a new front mount. They don't fail. Older ones do. It's false economy :yup:

Guy local to me has brand new set of headers, last time I asked he wanted £200 for them. Last secondhand ones I saw go on eBay went for £170.

There is a set on Ebay just now as it happens, from an '05 XB12 SCG, at $133 plus postage they're reasonably priced but they have exhaust wrap so can't tell the condition of the metal although the seller states they are in good nick. Unsure about taking a chance because the wrap may be hiding problems. Import duty is off putting too. :roll: Unsure if they would they fit an '04 anyway.

Wrapping itself causes the tubing to deteriorate.

They would fit

But you don't know what is underneath, corrosion or damage. Buy cheap, buy twice...
