The 216/235/261 Chevy Six was built from 1937-1962 in cars and trucks. Our tube steel headers allow you to run a split exhaust. If you wish to run exhaust heat to your intake manifold, these headers include weld-on bungs which can be used to pipe heat to your intake manifold. Includes manifold gaskets, collector gaskets, flanges for the dump tubes, and all hardware.
- 2" outlets
- 1-3/4" and 2" primary tubes
- 7/16" thick head flanges
NOTE: Headers are purposely relieved for additional clearance.
Note: Stainless header tubing when exposed to exhaust temperature will cause the finish to change color which will vary with the exhaust temperature. Please note that the finish of the header when the engine is started, will change to a light champagne color to a darker gold finish and in some instance may even turn dark blue or purple. This can be polished back out when utilizing Blue-away or Simi-chrome polish, but please note that when the headers reach running temperature again, they will immediately change color.
- The fittings welded to these headers are for those that want to use the original type carb heat tube. If you intend to provide heat to your manifold, you will need to drill a hole in the center of one or both of these fittings and run a tube up to the exhaust passages within the intake manifold. If you do not need to heat your intake, do not drill the holes.
- If using the stock clamps, it would be necessary to use shorter studs because of the thickness of the flange on these headers compared to the stock cast iron manifolds. An aftermarket intake manifold would also complicate the stud or bolt length requirements. A spacer may be required to match up the thickness variations between the intake and exhaust manifolds.
