Default NEED 525efi HEADERS (2 PAIR)

Both pair of my headers are leaking. I'm looking for two new pair (all 4 headers). Please give me a call directly ASAP.

Thanks,
Joe

You should call CMI or Merc. I've seen them warranty these on 500EFI even past Merc warranty

Yeah... CMI is saying they'll "repair" them and that they are only 1 yr warranty (if purchased w/ the boat) and 2 yr if you buy direct.

I'm looking for two pair that were take-off's or something (dealer cost is even sky-high on these)

FYI - 600 EFI's are the same headers - if someone's didn't use theirs (or switched to tractors - sp???)

Is this a common problem with this type of exhaust or is this boat an isolated incident?

FYI - Great price on Trick Marine/Fred's - but they don't work on the 525 EFI's.

UPDATE:

fyi - All of my headers were sent to CMI. 3 were repaired and I was told by CMI that the 4th was unrepairable, and then basically, that I was "f'd" and was on my own to go buy another pair! Wow!!!

What sh!tty customer service from CMI and Merc, sh!tty "monopoly" by Mercruiser and yet GREAT, GREAT price and service from the person who did hook me up (who, by the way is not from CMI or Merc!!!!!). My decision is closing in on the next boat - and I guarantee you it will only have Zul's or Sterlings!

P.S. If anyone wants the "repaired" headers, PM me. Reimburse me for the repair job ($300) and my shipping costs (which CMI also didn't pay for), and I'll have CMI ship them directly to you. I'm leaving them there unless someone wants them! Seriously, I wouldn't have the heart to sell them to someone and later find out that another seam/weld let go and grenaded an engine.
