    I bought some ceramic coated Flowtech Afterburner headers from Summit. Got them today. When I was looking at them, I noticed a dent in the first pipe on the drivers side header. There is no dent on the passenger side header. So I packed them up and was about to send them back when I realized that the dent could be there purposely for spark plug clearance. I'm waiting to receive my new crate engine so I couldn't dry fit them. So I called Summit and they said that I could be right or that it could have been damaged during shipping (they suggested that I call Flowtech direcelty, which I will do tomorrow). I know some of you have the Flowtech Afterburners. Do yours have a dent?
