AMG M117 Headers...Anyone have a set laying about?

Wondering if anyone has a set of authentic AMG headers sitting on the shelf that they might be willing to lend for the purpose of replication?

Thank you.

Have you forgotten Mclares'? I am sure he will loan them to you since he is getting the custom one's made up!

I know there is a difference between Tri-y headers and AMG headers, but from his previous posts it sounds like he must have both.

Ha I didn't know there was a difference, how could I tell if my GEN II tri-Ys are AMG or normal?

I believe mclare has oem tri-y cast manifolds only.

amg and oem tri-y are very similar in design...cast iron manifolds. amg has amg logo cast to the outside of the manifolds.

amg headers are of a tubular design. made of steel tubing.

You might want to check with him (Mclare). He has AMG headers listed under his upgrades and has mentioned many times that they are AMG:

"Okay, since this is what this thread is about and I have been bombarded with questions about what all I have done to my car, here goes:

This is a partial list off the top of my head. I will revise if I think of anything else:
ON HAND READY TO INSTALL

• AMG Exhaust system with new AMG Chrome tips and German Free Flow Cats (Thanks Justinwrock you wrock!)
• AMG Tri-Wye Headers (Thanks xtcbytes!)
• New Factory MB Phone Console

All work has been performed by me save the front end and removing the freeze plug and motor mounts.

And the list keeps growing..... I have had this car exactly 1 year this week.

Like Cascade says.. "IT NEVER ENDS"

A very beautiful sight! Those are the one's I thought Mclare had been saying he had all along since he said they were AMG headers.

48hp...Good luck on the quest. I am sure you will have those headers in no time since it seems that you are often the only one to ask if anyone has rare bits, then that rare bit pops up like it was just waiting for someone to ask for it! You have the knack of tracking stuff down.

Ok is there not a market for selling headers and other mods for w126 owners? I watch the "Horse Power TV" show and they are talking about some company that makes reproduction dashboards in 10 colours for a 1967 GM pick-up trucks... When was the last time you saw a 67 pick up? But sure as heck I se a few w126s everyday yet there is frig all for benzs.

Are there enough of us owners that would buy this stuff, could we combine our love and talents to create a business of making repro AMG bit and performance parts? Start with moulds and jigs and make up some stuff and put it on-line on a basic site. Heck if a dozen car buffs can waste 4 hrs a day 5 days a week chatting they could combine there skills and start a business?

Don't Roy and David both have AMG tuned motors? Shouldn't they have come with AMG headers when tuned? I know that Jim (Cascade) also has AMG headers.
