SBC/ Mopar headers

September 19, 2013
This kit is made for a sbc but in my 31 dodge Ive got a 360 so the kit worked well for my application. The only thing I thought that would be helpful would have been if there were some kind of instructions. But as any hot rodder knows chop, cut weld and if that doesnt work then start over or repeat. Great set of headers!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Lake style headers

September 07, 2011
This kit is awesome for someone who is not an expert on building headers. this was my first time building a set and it turned out very professional and the fit is custom for my 1927 Chrysler street rod. I couldnt be more happy with the ease of use, the outcome and the low budget cost for such a nice set of headers.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Weld up kit with a lot of thought in it.

March 25, 2011
Sure you have to cut and weld but I like making my own stuff. A lot of thought has already gone into them. My engine is pushed back pretty far, but the primary tubes come long enough to clear the cowl/firewall on my 32'. The cones are also short enough so as to not interfear with my doors opening (my five window doors open forward).
Pros:
  • Great Sound
  • Adds Style
  • Lightweight
Yes, I recommend this product.

This header kit will build something similar to 9300550. That header has a width from the flange to the outside of the collector of 16 3/4". I am sure you could make that even wider when using the weld up kit.

Does speedway offer baffles for this kit so you can run just the headers?

As always Speedway is attempting to fulfill our customers wants and desires. The lake style headers are a hit with the hot rodders and customers have used variations of baffles such as our Vortec cones or modified auger mufflers with decent results. We are working on a baffle/muffler type bolt on end or turn out and is something that will be coming but a definite time frame is still not available.

are there complete instructions included? showing the proper lay out for the pipes and flanges.

Part # 9300559 The lake style header kits are not for a specific vehicle and the 8 individual tubes are cut to your desired length to achieve the proper angle outward for body clearance or other preferences. They could also be cut at an angel to have the tapered cone below or above the head ports. There is a photo in our catalog and on the website of a finished header for reference but nothing for layout for the multitude of vehicles they are used on. The kit gives the customer the versatility to cut and weld as needed for their particular application. Speedway also offers pre assembled for many applications.

This Lake Style header kit fits many hot rods and the flange is set up for small block Chevy engine. We also offer flanges for big block Chevy, Ford applications, and even some Mopar engines. If needed a specific flange we do not offer you may want to check with Pertronix for availability. If using these on full size vehicles other than cars and pickups from the 20’s and 30’s there will probably be clearance issues as the primary tubes do not extend far enough from the motor for clearance at the firewall. Feel free to check our website for other options for these applications.

Small Block Chevy Lake Style Headers, Black
(Part #9300550)
                        

Nostalgia-style street rods are hotter than ever, and nothing gives your vintage rod that authentic dry lakes competition look like a set of lakester headers. These exposed small block Chevy headers work great on rods without hoods, but we’ve also seen them peeking through carefully trimmed hood sides. Each lakester header has a flange so you can connect it to a muffled under-car exhaust when the end plate is on.

  • Fits 265-400 c.i. with standard or Vortec heads including D-port ZZ-4 style heads (not LT-1)
  • 1-5/8" primary
  • Includes flange to connect 2” exhaust pipe
  • Removable end plates allow you to run open headers with ease
  • Includes gaskets and mounting hardware

NOTE: Turn-outs NOT included. Headers come with end plates, but the turn outs are sold seperately.

  • Protects surronding components from excessive heat
  • Made from a durable, specially treated woven glass fiber material

For a Small Block V8 engine, you will need approximately (2) 2" x 50' rolls. Big Blocks and 180° style headers may require one additional 2" x 50' roll.
