Any interest in a 180 header thread?

Getting near the end of this particular project - it got rolled into a new fuel system and wiring and rear body section . . .

Really wanted the headers; they're Schoenfeld stock car headers with my collectors and exhaust; SBC in the miiddle of my Mid-Engineering Kelmark.

Had to mod the frame a good bit!

Could post a build thread; new to this forum.

Speaking of noise, a few years ago Mike Waltrip came out w/a 180 degree header set-up in his NASCAR Pontiac. The strangest sounding engine out there (compared to the others).

They had issues w/vibration playing hell w/the welds, but I guess the power was decent.

But, yeah- I'd be interested- even though packaging a 180 degree system would be a challenge in most vehicles... Your system looks great- I'd hate to think of the hours involved!

Some of the old F1 race cars used this set-up. The exhaust systems were works of art.

The complete car, and then the way the exhaust looked when I first sliced off the rear body section to make it tilt - period Chevy ram's horn manifolds and rusty tailpipes from 1978.

I took the liberty of throwing some light on the photos. Where did you get the chroming(?) done?

It's Jet Hot's "Sterling" ceramic coating - not as shiny as chrome; not supposed to discolor, and will keep the surface temp a few hundred degrees cooler -

Right now, just a '69' Corvair with four spider gears.

The next big project is changing to a THM-425 (i've got three, now!), but done in a new way, removing the Eldo diff, and using an offset Winters Quick-Change (solid) axle on a 4-link, like a Super Mmodified, but with both the trans and engine (reversed, but the headers still fit) ahead of the axle, and a short driveshaft - whole 'nother thread I need to do!

How do I put full-size pix in with the text? I tried to post, then open the pic, copy, close, edit, paste, but no luck.

You can insert an image by bracketing the address inside [img]image addy goes here [/img].

I will first upload the image into my photo gallery (provided by the Hotrodders Forum- click on "Photo Gallery" @ top of page), then a right click will bring up a box that has "properties" among the choices. Click on that and copy the address.

There's no doubt an easier way of doing and explaining it all- I'm computer semi-illiterate, so this is as good as it gets from me!! lol

Many of us use a web freebie, Photobucket that will allow you to post photos here. You open your account (did I say FREE) download your photos - any size - then copy them here . They are sized correctly for forums. You will delete photos on line though if you delete or rename them in Photobucket. It is a little tricky and they do change their format occasionally, but is extremely simple once you get the hang of it. This is an example:



Of course there are many other methods and programs, but this seems to be one of the most popular.
