you should be able to find a replacement header but i would just make a new hole for the spring.that pipe will work but if you can find one used get it, you want be disappointed

You may try Picco no. 6 Turbo plug

I prefer Orion plugs:
ORI88825 CRF Turbo Plug No. 5 (Hot)
ORI88826 CRF Turbo Plug No. 6 (Medium)




For my experience, Picco engines need to have more head shims (from 0.5 to 0.7 mm, 16% nitro). You'd better try different shims thickness in order to get the best performance.

That VR12 is a good pipe but the header material is to soft and wears out over time. Its a common problem. I've gone thru 3 headers, each with extra holes drilled on each side. Now I have three pipes, one header. I think nova has one that is compatible with the VR12.
