Tomei UEL Header

Hey relatively new to this car scene. Is the tomei uel still being produced? Also if it is where is a good place to get it? I seen 86Speed says “in stock” but I do not trust them. If someone could offer some guidance that’d be great.

86speed is reputable.

Oh really? Have you ordered there before? I’ve heard mixed opinions on them, I usually strictly deal with ftspeed but they sadly do not have the tomei.

If you want, I've got a lightly used Tomei UEL for sale. I'm up in Michigan so shipping will be pretty cheap. PM me if you're interested.

86Speed is cool. Ask for Caleb, he’ll take care of you.

I did not have a good experience with 86speed and would not recommend them. Not dropping names just will not give them my business again

Yea this is what I have heard more of than any good things about them, which is why I am a little bit hesitant. Thanks for the reply!

I found mine brand new with heat wrap etc on Amazon for the same price (I had to burn some amazon gift cards). But ive also purchased through 86speed[dot]com and ive found them to be very good and they do throw out some massive sales too, more so than ftspeed[dot]com.

Also, FWIW while your changing your header, check out some DEI reflective heat tape for your oil pan.

It sure is.

I'd bet *nobody* including CSG, has it in stock. You'd be ordering, and then waiting for the next batch to arrive.

PM me if you want to order with realistic lead times.

The Port of Los Angeles hit a new record today with 47 container ships waiting to be unloaded, waiting on the water.
