Everything aligned just great. It may have had issues during original release but they must have fixed it after getting the reviews.

I think it's more a case of a certain percent just don't line up correctly. The one that didn't fit was bought a while after the release of the Alpha. I'm glad you didn't have any problems though!

Thanks i'm glad mine was problem free!
I also have the Sk2 Pro-C coils that when u look back there was also reports of fitment issues when they were originally released but now mine are great and issue free.

But the question is, does it make sense? That two headers produced by the same company have a $400 price difference; Yet we believe they're EXACTLY the same?

Oh well...

I was debating between alpha and mega power headers a while back. I ended up getting the Skunk 2 alpha for $380, and all i can say is i made a good decision and ended up saving about $300+. I had no fitment issues no no leaks, just good happy power made. You just need to extend the o2 sensor but you have to do that any way for the mega power, and you need swap out the bolts.

After reading this, I've made up my mind and heading towards the mega power header =)

I think the real difference about the alpha and the mega is we see a dinorun in the same car with the same modifications. The installation is the same.
Its too much money U$S 300 more for the megapower.
