’67-’69 CAMARO- ’68-’74 NOVA LS-1 thru LS-7 PRO-TOUR
STOCK CHASSIS with STOCK STEERING BOX OR 600 STEERING BOX
This header is available in a 1 ¾” tube size with a 3” collector also a 1 7/8” or 2” tube size with a 3 ½” collector. All of our headers are hand made so we can build any combination you need, including a step design or for tall deck blocks or aftermarket cylinder heads.
All the tubes are inside the frame, with excellent ground clearance, spark plug access and oil filter access. On our design car we used a Moroso aftermarket oil pan and a stock pan. The bottom of the header was even with the bottom of the stock oil pan and ½” higher than the bottom of the Moroso pan. The available room on each side of the stock oil pan for sump kick outs is 2 ½” on the passenger side and 3 ¼” on the driver side.
The header is designed to fit side motor mounts, but not motor plates. We used DSE motor mount adapters on the engine and small block frame mounts on the chassis. Our LS headers come with oxygen sensors welded in each collector or if you request a “V” band connection for your exhaust reducers then we would install the oxygen sensor bungs in the reducers which can be rotated to any position.
This header will not fit a factory air conditioning box on the firewall or factory column shifter linkage, but it WILL fit up to a 9” power brake booster. A stock or aftermarket starter will fit.
We recommend using aftermarket spark plug wires either Taylor or MSD with a 45 degree angled boot.
Special note for LS-7 engines: The stock oil pan for the LS-7 has dry sump oil lines on the passenger side. These oil lines will interfere with our header and need to be redirected. Newman Car Creations makes a very nice CNC right angle oil block for this problem. It takes up very little space and keeps the oil lines away from the header. This is the best I’ve seen. Some other adapters come out too far and the lines end up close to the header. Contact: Newman Car Creations, Paul Newman at 805-226-9201.
Driver side, the steering box makes installation difficult. We recommend installing this side as the engine is installed.
Passenger side, this side is very easy. With the starter and spark plugs in place the header can be installed from below.
Refer to our header installation tip’s page for additional information.
