What's in the Box

Info

The most universal shorty header just got better! Now made of durable stainless steel, these tight-fit headers feature a heavy duty 3/8" thick flange to minimize warpage with 1-5/8" diameter primary tubes and 2-1/2" diameter collectors. Block hugger headers are ideal for street rod engine swaps and can make tight installations easy. They tuck in close to the engine block to provide clearance for frame rails, steering boxes and motor mounts, but please see dimension chart to verify fit for your application.

The head flange features tall oval ports, so they will fit a variety of small block Chevy cylinder heads (EXCEPT angle plug heads). The collectors exit parallel with the oil pan rail to provide maximum ground clearance. Headers include gaskets, collector reducers with a 2" diameter outlet, and stainless steel installation hardware.

Header Dimensions (GIF)

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.

TRI 5 CHEVY HEADERS

August 04, 2014
Headers are really nice quality, super nice polish job. Headers DO NOT fit very well, Had issues with the pitman arm banging into the lower collector area and spark plug access is poor. Plug wires burn instantly as the outer tubes on both sides are bent at the wrong angle and place the plug boot directly on the tube. These outer tubes could easily be angled down slightly or "dinged" prior to polishing to gain the needed clearance. When I called to express my concerns I was told that that's the way they are...no help, no solutions offered, just said they have been this was since they were designed???? Needless to say, a big hammer and a torch solved the issues, now I have brand new polished stainless steel headers with dings and dents and heat circles...AWESOME for my show car!!!
No, I would not recommend this product.

These headers fit perfectly in my 1950 Chevrolet 3100 pickup small block conversion. I used the original straight axle with added rack & pinion so steering issues were no problem. Quality construction. Heavy gauge flange. Bolts and gaskets included with collectors. Finish was excellent. Price was right. A real bargain compared to other brands!
Pros:
  • Price

  • quality of construction

The tight fit headers extend out 4” from the head and drop down 10” from the top of the ports putting the collector nearly on top of the cross member making exhaust hook up nearly impossible. Your better choice would be a header that exits more towards the rear or sweeps rearward for exhaust hook up such as 9300108.

Some modification may be needed to the heat riser to use it on these headers. These headers will fit your 327 engine and clear the block just fine.

These headers have 1 5/8” primary tubes and fashioned in a tall oval design. They work with most oem heads having the smaller square ports. If your ports are 1 ¼” wide these headers should work without restriction on exhaust flow.

do they change color under heat

Answers

Waymon
All polished stainless material when subjected to high temperature will turn a golden tint which can be polished out, but will turn back to the golden tint when heated again. This can not be prevented, and is by the nature of the stainless metal.
April 17, 2011
50s-carguy
Yes, stainless typically changes to a variegated golden brown and purple color when subjected to high heat. The header flanges on mine have not changed color since installation due to the fact that they're much thicker than the tubing and they're bolted to the heads which act as heat sinks.
