Leaking Doug Thorley Headers. What to do?

I bought a set of stainless ceramic coated DT headers in April. I installed them and I thought everythig was ok. In May I bought the uprev and did the logs so i could get my first map tuned. It turned out It looked looked like I had a leak on the left bank, So I took it back apart figuring I had messed something up when I installed it. Once I had it apart I could see the leaks and it was pretty clear why.

So I called Nick at DT and told him what was going on and he said he wanted to get the header back so they could "fix" it. The problem with this is I live in Florida and its going to take 5 days for it to get to him, then they are going to have to fix it, then its 5 days back and I cant be without my truck for two to three weeks. So we agreed that they would get me a new one but they didnt have anymore so it would be about 5 weeks but he wanted me to call back after 2 weeks and see how things were going. I called again after 2 and a half weeks to check on things and Nick tiold me they were in welding and I should call again in a week and a half. So today I called and he tells me that he was wrong the that the headers being made now are the mild steel not the stainless and he still thinks I should send the one I have to him to have it fixed. I got really pissed because I paid alot for the headers and I just want them not to leak. I cant even get my e-tunes done because of the leak. Another problem is that it sounds like ****.
In his defense its only been 4 weeks so its not like its gone on longer then we agreed but today he didn't even give me a time frame for when I would get them.

I am asking you guys what you think I should do and am I wrong for being upset?

Yes those from Chas at Tap that he posted were amazing, those are true long tube headers tri-y.

Can't wait to see what the M56 VK56VD does when someone bites the bullet and makes a set of true LT headers for it or the QX56.

These are what Long tube header design style should look like for the Titan or other VK56 platform as an OFF THE SHELF header. And in 1-3/4 diameter,

Yeah LGMotorsports
Very nice Headers!

JBA was going to build something like this but with so many members already having aftermarket B-Pipes it made sense to build what consumers can use along with their mods. If a company was to bring a set of 1 3/4" stainless headers and mid-pipes it would start at 900 and go up from there and MOST consumers are not ready to shell out 1K+ just for headers when you could buy Intake,Exhaust,Headers for less then 1K.
