Nah, PLM is a J's replica.

I actually submitted a message to Hytech via FB about potentially getting a set of these. Long story short, I ended up selling my Urge header a few months ago, brand new, unused. I had a knee-jerk reaction about wanting to go turbo and immediately started obtaining parts I would need and shedding parts I wouldn't. Unfortunately that meant I sold my header. It was a beautiful header, and well-received by the community, but the thought of a header made by an excellent fabricator such as Hytech, tailored to my specifications and planned usage (2.0L, supercharged, 70mm exhaust) was appealing. Still haven't heard back yet....I've seen that seems to be the general case in this thread with a few individuals getting the runaround, but for a nearly 2k header with several people interested I'm sure it would be worth his while to pump some of these out.

You should reach out to Origin Fabrication. They will make you a custom header to suit your application, and they make theirs out of 321 stainless so it’s nice and light. I have one on order

The problem with John was always getting product out. He started working with Greg at GT Motoring in 2010 or 2011 for this reason. Greg handled all the questions/answers/ordering/shipping and John just made the things and delivered them to Greg. It worked for a short period of time (maybe 10 headers) and John quit making the headers for this car.

Too bad. I bought one with a short testpipe, got it tuned and it rocks.

I think that's how mine was originally purchased, and I have the same setup as you. I reached out to John about having cams made, and.... no response. Hopefully that changes.

I purchased mine through GT Motoring I believe in 2012. After waiting around 10 months and getting the run around from GT Motoring. Greg gave me John's number and told me to contact him directly. Once I did that, I literally received it like 2 weeks later.

Good luck on getting a set of cams, I had seen some floating around for sale a while ago.
