New Header Purchase

Will 2" or 2 1/8" tube headers fit without having to modify them? I just hate the thought of beating on a brand new set of headers.

I did speak to Lemons, and his headers are $1400 + $400 for the coating (which he shared he sublets), but he said none of his headers will work with a factory 11" braker booster because the #5 tube crosses over the #7. He said I would have to purchase a smaller booster. His stainless start at $3300

The car is a factory big block, so Im assuming the motor mounts/stands will correct. It came orig with manual steering, and I have added a power steering box, but sounds like the tube will have to be beat no matter what.....

Does anyone make a stainless header (preferably) that does not need any adjusting?

I had purchased a new set of stainless headers from Stainless Works, but the engine lost some power on the dyno. We originally dynoed it with the shops 2 1/8", and then installed mine to see if it made any difference. My engine made good power with the bigger headers, so I am looking for either 2" or 2 1/8", so I will have a brand new set of 1 7/8" tube headers for sale. They are brand new minus 3 pulls on a dyno, so they may have 60-90 seconds of run time.

Thanks,
Greg

Re: New Header Purchase

How much power did you lose? Are you bracket racing?

Re: New Header Purchase

hello......it wasnt crazy numbers, but it was a loss, and I hated losing the horsepower, so if I could find a set of bigger tubes I would buy them....provided I dont have to beat on them....ha

Irrespective of dyno numbers, your car will likely accelerate better with a smaller header.
