headers

  1. Hotrodding Basics
    Just installed my long tube headers and the driver's side collector is pointing outboard by about 2". I'm thinking there should be enough "give" in the tubes to pull it back to where it belongs. Making the adjustment in the exhaust pipes won't work because there's a radiused clearance in the...

    I'm still trying to determine what headers will fit my application. 351W in a '67 Fairlane coupe. No power steering and a T-5 tranny with a Z-bar. I'm going to run a set of ProMaxx heads per the attached photo. They have angled plugs. So far I've received some good suggestions on what...

    Hello everyone, I am looking for some information concerning the purchase of headers for a 1995 GMC C1500 RWD pickup truck that I'm putting a rebuilt 454 into. I can find headers for the BBC that goes into the Chevrolet 454 SS but they're expensive. Can anyone tell me if the headers for a...

    I rebuild a Pontiac 350 and now I want to attach headers, although the heads are missing two mounting holes. I was wondering if any of you have had to get these holes drilled by a machine shop?

    I just bought a vehicle that has a Chevy 305 engine. It has Zoomie headers on it. BUT---they are really loud. The owner told me that there are baffles in them. They are still very loud! I can't imagine how loud they would be if there were no baffles! Is there any way that I can make them...

    Does anyone know what's going on with Red's Headers? With a wait list over a month long, everyone seems to be having trouble getting a hold of their headers for some reason. I've had people tell me they are being bought out by another company and are no longer manufacturing there products. Can...

    I have been reading up on exhaust pulse and exhaust header building in general. One thing that keeps nagging at me is that the primaries are all the same diameter on 180 degree headers that I keep finding. As you can imagine most of them are custom. Yet, they all seem to have the same diameter...

    So I was wondering if cutting 2 feet off my pipes would do anything for me in terms of power? Or would it just be a waste of my time? They're 2.5 inch straight pipes about 6ft long with 1.5 inch primary shorty headers.. Also my headers glow red hot. They're wrapped in DEI heat wrap. Is that...
