Okay, It's been fixed. Not sure why it was set to private.

Todd, the difference you see in Bill's headers is they're the sprint car style, where the rear tubes come forward to meet the others, then turn to the rear.

For an even different style, take a look at Sanderson headers, I just bought a new set of their BBC ceramics for the T, coated inside and out. Not installed yet so no pictures of them, I have the one's Bill has on it now.

His engine is a 350 ZZ4 crate. Not sure what brand of headers, just zoomies. He had to drill them to put a retaining screw for the slip in baffles, so they can be removed if he ever wanted straight pipes. I'm not sure of brand, but I think something like these from Car Chemistry:

Some of the baffles Ive seen are basically a tin cup with a hole in the bottom; the Harley type baffle in the post by 71BB427 are much better. A high compression motor is probably going to "cackle" more than a basic ZZ4 350 will. Putting new-style headers on, will most likely require a jetting change.

Its a T-bucket; how much bottom end do you need LOL...put your foot in it man.

yes, I saw those. would like to hear some zoomies on a 350 with the baffles in!! it would be easlier to decide. I don't mine a little loud. just don't want LOUD. you said your buddys weren't that bad. I wish I could hear them to decide. Thanks, Ray

Those kind of baffles are not that hard to make...won't cost 100 bucks to do so.. The longer they are the quieter they will be so the noise can be adjusted at least to a point.

We use something similar in the header collectors on circle track cars where there is a track noise rule..

Not possible for me. He sold his '32, so can't get video.
