About the Headers
The header starts with a generous, 3/8" thick manifold flange. A patented port-seal surface is face ground at the mounting face of the engine head such that they can be used without a gasket. One is encouraged to use a hi-temp RTV sealant (preferred) or a even a traditional gasket (not included).

Featuring large 1-1/2" tubes, the primary pipes gather into a 2-1/2" collector. The collector flange itself is a three-bolt style. Included are the header-to-head bolts.

The headers are a medium length, measuring 12" & 13" from the center of the head flange to the bottom of the collector

The block-hugging design allows the installer to have the exhaust routed in one of the following three popular ways:

Coated or Natural Steel
The basic header is offered in natural steel, which the customer can optionally have finished in a variety of hi-temp enamels or other finshes that will offer rust protection and good appearance.

The coated version of these headers are finished in an extremely durable, insulative and attractive Alu-Ceramic compound. This finish offers the added benifit of lower underhood temperatures and the highest level of protection to the header.
