I don't think those are titanium devil...most likely stainless. Personally I love the look of the dual cans.

Is yours Ti or stainless?

My bad I just re-read your post. I didn't know they made a Ti alternative.

It's ti for sure. Had my ti Akra welded to it by a aerospace guy. He built this box and pumped argon into to weld correctly. It was pretty interesting

I wonder...

I don't want to be THAT guy, but I'd be a bit cautious about the material claim of the seller.

Many stainless qualities are not magnetic. In fact, it is one of the main properties of stainless steel.
Stainless is welded using Argon gas to avoid contaminating the weld.
Sometimes the welds on stainless steel will rust a bit because of the added material. Some welds, especially around the flanges look a bit rusty to me.
Lastly, the heat discoloration does not look like Ti to me.

But then again, even if it isn't Ti it is still a GREAT price for a nice set of headers in what looks to be very good shape. Get yourself a Ladybird can and you have a great system for next to nothing.

I cannot comment on whether the header for sale is ti or not. I had two different exhaust shops turn my project away due to not being able to weld titanium. I found one guy in all of Kansas City that could do it. I doubt all of them were wrong about it being titanium. Maybe it's not jardine but it is titanium. I'll throw some pics up when i can.
