Q & A

What's in the Box

These headers are the classic fender well design used by many on '55-'57 Chevy gassers in the early days of drag racing. They kick-up and over the frame rail and exit just at the bottom of the cowl. You will have to modify your emergency brake cable. Designed to be used with the engine in stock location, not lowered as many kits do. These ceramic coated headers provide superior performance and durability.

These headers include all necessary mounting hardware, collector reducers, premium gaskets (rated to 1100° F), and detailed installation instructions.

  • Primary Diameter:  1-3/4"
  • Collector Diameter:  3.0"

Notes

  1. May require smaller front tires to avoid contact.
  2. Will fit most angle plug heads including factory Chevrolet "Bow-Tie" heads. Fits Edelbrock angle plug heads.
  3. Will fit with 605 power steering box.
  4. Will not work with power brakes.

Armor Hot Coating (AHC) is a heat resistant, ceramic coating applied to the outside of the header. This coating will reflect heat, which helps retain more heat within the header tube while simultaneously speeding up the exhaust flow. Not only will this coating help you make more horsepower, it also keeps your headers rust-free, looking great, and lasting longer (when properly maintained).  If you are looking for a show-quality finish for your headers, this is it! AHC will withstand exhaust temperatures of up to 1300¢ª F.

Warranties

AHC coated headers will burn and be damaged at exhaust temperatures above 1300 degrees. An excessively lean fuel mixture can generate exhaust temperatures over 1700-1900 degrees. If the coating is burned (which will look like a dull gray) due to a lean condition, it is not warrantied, but the headers can be recoated.

Not legal for sale or use in California on pollution controlled motor vehicles.
