sb chevy rams horn exhaust manifolds

Will rams horn exhaust manifolds clear a passenger side dipstick tube?

I can buy some new ones for about $130 per side, they would flow pretty good and I wouldnt have to worry about leaks.

I found some 2 1/4 center dump for $100 for both but Im holding out for some 2 1/2 center dump. I may use them for now and upgrade later.

dipstick tube

The dipsticks come up in the same place. Drivers side is short and goes in by head. Passenger is longer and goes in by oil pan. The tube can be bent a little for final fitting. I would check around. 130 for rams horns is steep. Most people are throwing them away for headers.

I use them..........and have them coated. The photo is the drivers side but mine clear the oil stick on the passenger side.

MOST of the street rods I see have ram horn exhaust. Brackateer's friends are throwing them away...... ( Racers ) ....mine are using them and having them coated.......

Headers are better for the track........and I agree with Brackateer.....$130 per side is a little high. I never pay more than $15 to $20 for a Ram Horn exhaust manifold (used) . ....less if the studs are broken/missing

I think he's talking about the 2 1/2" new ones that you can buy. I thought they sold for about $110 each. Check Scoggin-Dickey.

If not, that price is waaaayyy too much! I'll sell them for $129.99. LOL.

Thanks you guys. Man does that thing run close to the block, picture is worth a lot.

I think I may have found a set for less than $130 each. I can save a penny.

There are different styles of rams horn manifold, but they all will clear the in block dipstick, either side. There are some dip sticks installed in the oil pan and you may need to do some engineer bending if you have one of those minority motors. Scoggins-Dickey offers the straight down 2 1/2" dumps as Corvette replacement and they were $104 each the last time I looked. Probably the best deal you can find!!! Duce's manifold is from most truck motors and are superb for close quarters. To my knowledge, they were only the 2" dump version. If I'm wrong, hope someone can post the parts/casting numbers so I can go shopping. If you are looking for a used pair, look at the passenger side closely because they were very crack prone due to the heat riser and if you do use these, throw the heat riser away!!!

Yes, those turned-back style manifolds were only in the 2" variety. You can find them for both sides. They came on trucks and Novas.

The change from 2" to 2 1/2" is like night and day, but the 2 1/2" are only straight down style.

I saw some at www.partsamerica.com under the Motormite or Dorman brands, but I have not heard anything about their quality. Search was for '65 Corvette w/327.
