I went at my headers with a Porta Band, a hack saw (told ya I hacked them), and a TIG welder this weekend. I cut a wedge in the collector until it was nearly through, then pivoted it in and welded them up. The first one turned out great. The second was going good but I cut the wedge on the wrong side and it pivoted the wrong way. I then had to weld pieces back in. My friend with the tig welder was calling the second header "Franken Header". It really turned out pretty good considering.

I will post some pics when I get my digital camera back from my wife.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

As posted above (or is it below) the headers fit amazingly well. If I can get some shots with the camera I will post them.
