Jeep Cj7 Header

Hi, I'm trying to find a good used header for my CJ7 with 258 I6. I've found a pecesetter header that looks pretty good but I don't know if this kind of header is good to put on my jeep because I'm in Italy and here I don't know nobody thatknow this kind of header. the alternative that i've found is a clifford header but it costs a lot.
Thanks,

Giacomo.

On my 258 I used a Hedman Header. Check out summitracing.com.

I had the double outlet but the problem w/that was adjusting my clutch, the collector was right where the clutch adjustment was. Next time I will probably use the single outlet header. The double outlet sounded good though.

Ok, so you think the best option is the hedman. what do you think about the Borla? I know they costs a lot but here in Italy are the only kind of header available for my Jeep because this engine is not so popular here and the shops don't sale other brands of header for my engine.
For the other brand I must buy in US.

Borla makes quality parts. I had a catback from them I got it for cheap but for retail its expensive, it was nice though. Dont know about their headers though, but you know what they say "you get what you pay for".

I would take a Borla over the Headman any day.

Borla is hands-down the best out of that bunch. It's stainless steel, so of course it's costs more than the painted mild steel stuff. I had Hookers or Hedmanns with the special coating on them on my first Jeep for a while and went back to the stock manifold when I replaced the engine. Sounded darn good, but I always had to check the bolts and on long trips they'd heat up and glow orange and my engine would start backfiring.
