Are you talking about the Keith Eikhert ones? (used to be made by PF Marine)

They're the only Ali ones I've seen, look like a great big cast ali snail.

yes there the ones. I am thinking of buying a Cigarette boat that has a broken stainless header and I was informed that Ali ones are cheaper but reduce hp ,
I have no idea which are the best ali ones, I just wondered if there was any disadvantage in using Aluminium

These:

Eickhert is a master.
They used to be marketed by someone else (PF Marine) I always thought they looked nice.
Stainless tubular headers are a nightmare, nowt but aggro, they have a definite 'lifespan', after which they develop cracks, that quickly change your motor into a ball of rust & corrosion.(from within)
