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.

I currently have outboard headers on my 57. i am replacing them with the ones you carry. My question is, my old headers are hooked up to an exhaust system that goes outside the frame. What are the chance that these headers will line up with the exhaustI already have on my car? I know that different headers have different exit points, but since these are both fenderwell headers, is there a good chance they come out close? If I get a set of these headers and install them very carefully (not to scratch or damage in any way), if they are way off, can i return them? thanks greg

You will need to buy the exact same brand and style of header as you have currently to have much chance at getting the exhaust to bolt right up. More than likely different brands will be close on the exit point but typically not close enough to bolt the exhaust system right up in place without modification. We do accept returns within 60 days but once they have been bolted on and it is obvious where the bolts have been tightened up then I cannot sell them as new. We may still be able to take them as a return however with a restocking fee applied but depends on how they look when we get them back.

Hooker 2102-3HKR Super Competition Long Tube Header, 10 Inch Length
(Part #42521023HKR)
                        

The NEW Hooker Darkside black ceramic coated headers offer the nostalgic, aggressive look of black with a more refined texture and appearance than is possible from any painted finish. The satin sheen provided by this coating is truly striking and sure to please. In addition to providing a more menacing look, which makes a fresh styling statement, Hooker's new Darkside coating supplies all the corrosion resistance properties of our existing silver ceramic coating plus improved thermal resistance to ensure peak performance and durability. Hooker Darksides provide a unique styling enhancement that is equally pleasing in either a nostalgic retro application or a modern hi-tech build. As this coating is not burnished (polished) after its application, the surface appearance is more consistent than that of a silver ceramic coated header. Be different and move over to the Darkside! With Hooker Super Competition the objective has always been to make the maximum horsepower and to put it at the optimum point in the power curve. It takes a lot of time and money to do the job right. We will sometimes spend up to 2 to 3 times more just to make the Super Competition header work only 5 to 10% better. That commitment to excellence has made Hooker Headers the winningest header manufacturer in automotive drag racing history.
