Small update I just ordered my. Header (APN) for the Xj. I'll have it installed within the next couple of weeks with a new exhaust video.

I hope you have better luck then I had.

I couldn't get the one from APN to seat right. It was hitting on the intake manifold which I ended up cracking when I bolted everything down. I ended up with one of headers with the expansion joints in it and have had no trouble with it.

The APN header came today, Overall quality is good. I do wish the runners were fully welded around on the outside but I assume they were not due to excessive heat when welding which could make the material prone to crack. But other then that they seem great ! With my curse of needing to modify everything I own , I couldn't leave well enough alone. I could not resist the urge to Ceramic coat the header .
