    Does it have a Jasma stamp/logo on one of the primarys. If it doesn't even have that, it means that it is not even a JDM aftermarket header.

    Yes, stainless steal is steal, and iron and steal are magnetic, aluminum and titainum are not.

    well, there are stypes of stainless steel that are non-magnetic for the record

    304 stainless for example, is non-magnetic

    the higher the grade of stainless steel, the less magnetic it is.
    the lower the grade (more carbon), the more magnetic it is.
    that is fact. my dad is a steelworker.
