Hi guys, I am looking for a pair of early Daytona side pipes. These would be the slip on ones. I am working on finishing my Daytona Spyder and found that I have an late set of side pipes that are the 4 bolt flange and an early set of headers with the twin slip on connections. Don't know exactly how that happened but the fella I bought the kit from must have gotten confused when he had them ceramic coated or that was all Factory Five had left when they sent them to him. At any rate I have a dilemma on my hands here. Called factory five about the headers and none available, early side pipes are out of production. Called Georgie at GAS N and he is so far behind he said it will be late December before he can even start building a set of Frankenstein headers for me and this process is really expensive.
Anyone know of anything or has any parts that could help me out it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Jim.
We have the opposite problem (early side pipes no headers). If you would like to sell your headers let me know.
Thanks,

Ok, I'll see what we end up with and let you know.
Thanks, Casey.
I guess you don't want people thinking you're Santa Clause with that jingling. They may start expecting stuff.🤣

Casey, if you want to sell your sidepipes let me know. Mine are coming apart inside and making jingling noises...

See, THIS is what I was afraid of and warned about in the past. NO support for their earlier customers, sell 'em and forget em'. I already found this out with other parts for my gen 1 but when it comes to major items they HAVE to keep an inventory of replacement parts for their customers or we are screwed with MAJOR custom fabricating costs. Yeah I know, Gen 3 owners don't worry about this (now) but keep in mind you're gen 3 for a reason, and gen 4 may be just a week or year away.
