SMALL BLOCK RACE HEADER- STOCK CHASSIS
click the images to see a larger size photo
This header is designed for any tube size up to 2 ¼” with any collector size up to 4”. The tightest area on this chassis is the floor board area around the transmission which does not allow enough room for our collector mufflers. All of the tubes are inside the frame with good ground clearance and spark plug access. The lowest part of the header is the collectors because of the floor board. The header is designed for oil pans with kick out sumps. Measuring from a stock oil pan we have 3” of room at the pan rail and 4 ¼” at the bottom of the pan on the driver side. On the passenger side we have 2 ¼” at the pan rail and 2 ½” at the bottom of the pan. With no kick out on the oil pan the starter and oil filter are accessible. This design is made to fit side motor mounts or motor plates, but the engine must stay in the stock location. This header will fit a power brake booster, but will not fit a factory clutch slave cylinder or air conditioning or column shifter linkage.
We offer Power Master #9540 starters.
Our race headers are normally made with individual tubes and slip on collectors for easier installation. Always check brake lines, fuel lines and electrical wires for clearance. They may need to be rerouted.
On both sides, install the tubes from front to back. As you install each tube only use one header bolt and leave it loose so the tube can move freely until all the tubes are installed. Then bolt them in place, but only snug the header bolts until the collectors are installed then go back and tighten all the bolts.
If you have a large tube size or a kick out oil pan you may have to remove the starter until the tubes are installed. While the tubes are loose reinstall the starter.
Refer to our header installation tip’s page for additional instructions.
