Default Which headers should I go with?

Ok this post was in another forum but since there are still a lot of stock 502's out there I wanted to get some broad feedback.

Basically the stock Mercury exhaust on my 2001 502 EFIs are shot and it looks like I bent a valve due to water leak between the manifold and riser.

Since it's 2 motors, I'm looking for low cost or gently used replacement. So far the best prices are Revolution $1200 pair and Dana Marine $1750 pair.

If $$$$ wasn't an option I would lean towards CMIs but I got some good advice that that's overkill for a stock motor.

I'm leaning towards the Dana's since they're a little more performance oriented.

Any suggestions or better deals elsewhere?

Neither of them are technically headers, they are performance manifolds. I just put a set of Dana's in Deb's 22 Donzi.

Toss EMI Thunders in the mix. 5 year warranty, competitive pricing, all brackets included.

Stainless Marine, sligntly more money, five year warranty, excellent reputation.

Lot's of choices.

Thanks guys, a lot of good choices here EMIs are looking good and there are some CMIs that can be had but a little more work to install. I gotta decide in the next day or so.
