Thumbs up Reverse Headers? Comment to Willys36.

Has anyone heard of reverse headers? Saw a Toyota the other day at a car show with a blown 350 in it and it had a wild header on it. Guy said it was called reverse headers and the company is out of California, but I cant find it on the net. Advance adapyors or something. Anyone heard of this? It had 4 individual tubes about 4 inches long running into one tube which was bigger, then feeding straight back and dropped down into the exhaust. kinda like a stock exhaust that dumps out at the rear. real neat and since it came straight out instead of down, it cleared all the steering shaft, frame and all.
Willys. Got your email. Thanks a lot. Cant email ya back cause my email is acting up, but wanted you to know I got it, Thanks again, HG

That header sounds like it was designed for convenience (rear outet) rather than performance boost. A properly designed header pipe, with enough length to allow a sound wave to travel up and back will out perform any other configuration you can think of at the engine's tuned power point. No header at all, or 4" primary pipe, is a relatively low performance design other than providing very low backpressure which isn't a serious problem in most exhaust systems in the first place.

Can't help you with the header, but I've bought some stuff from Advance Adapters: <a href="http://www.advanceadapters.com/aa.com/headers/jeep.html" target="_blank">http://www.advanceadapters.com/aa.com/headers/jeep.html</a>

The header you describe sounds a lot like the stock V6 Fiero header.

Advance adaptors is it. I just spelled it wrong.
I think it was for covenience, but would it hurt power. I know that Hemi in the Gremmie is gonna be tight, especially around the frame N steering shaft. Im just thinking ahead. HG

No it wouldn't hurt power any more than a stock cast iron header. Just wouldn't give any boost. Why not make a set of headers? Can make a den of snakes that would work and be the talk of your neighborhood!

Hemmi,Thorley makes all sorts of them funky headers.I think the ones you seen are called 4into1s.They also make Tri-Ys.My oppinion is if Hooker ain't maken um they ain't a good design.But thats just me.
