I Kin hate the cold.

Its Cold, miserable, foggy, misty, rainy and just absolute shite. Its dark everytime you get in the car, assholes are driving at 25 mph and stopping everytime theres a car coming the other way, running with fog lights blaring in your eyes even though you can see the rear light from 200 meters....

I could go on..I kin hate the cold

after looking at my headers i didnt like the look of the piece of metal beetween the ports, it just looks shit, so after deliberating if removing it may warp them i decided "fuck it" n out came the cutter,they didnt warp so no problem,new short plugs n set of leads, got a couple of bits to do then hopefully all sorted

from the pictures it looks like the bolts wernt ttight enough,thats what my first thought was,but all the bolys were tight,took the header off and put it in the vice upon which i put a strate edge across the ports and they were not as true as id have liked to see,put the gringer around them with a soft pad wheel leveled them up as best i could and re fitted, seem ok now, BARSTAD CARS

We're going to start calling you Sooty! If it's any help and once you've filed them up a bit you could use RTV to seal them with, I've always used it on race cars and been surprised how well it holds up.
