The new heart is a Sube, so the next will come from boxer tuners. Without a swap and w/ larger turbo kit it'll be under 10 secs by spring.

When I looked into this the cheapest source was buying used ones off of ebay. They would be one time use fasteners that were mandated to be replaced with new if they ever came out.

Mainly for aircraft, you could buy bags of them for cheap on ebay. Probably still good to use, but might be an odd size that would require a retapped hole.

A titanium header would be a huge waste of money. Any time you heat titanium much above 800'F it starts absorbing every thing in its environment. They would fall apart.
It would appear I didn't charge nearly enough for what I made.

I was an aircraft structures mechanic after doing composites for over a decade. Aircraft fasteners will always be in SAE, not metric, at least in the US. The shank part (un-threaded) are in 1/32" increments. For cars, used aircraft fasteners would be OK, but larger sizes would be really hard to come by, unless you're well connected. I'm not anymore. Bummer. But the weight savings, just to do a motorcycle is somewhere in the $3500 range for a savings of only about 3 pounds, and that includes special hollow axles. In which case spending money on heavy revolving parts, like wheels (MOI), would be a bargain. Works on cars, too. Just my spin, no pun intended.
