Q & A

What's in the Box

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. The exposed small block Chevy lakester header works great on rods without hoods, but we’ve also seen them peeking through carefully trimmed hood sides. The headers have flanges so you can connect them to a muffled under-car exhaust when the end plates are on. These ceramic coated headers feature superior performance and durability.

  • Fits 265-400 c.i. with standard or Vortec heads including D-port ZZ-4 style heads (not LT-1) 
  • 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 (turn outs sold seperately).

  • E = 8-1/2"
  • F = 12"

Notes

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! Our AHC will withstand exhaust temperatures of up to 1300¢ª F. 

Specs


Warranties

Warning: AHC coatings will burn and be damaged at exhaust temperatures over 1300 degrees. A lean fuel mixture can generate exhaust temperatures exceeding 1700-1900 degrees. If the coating is damaged due to a lean condition, the coating will not be warranted, but can be recoated for a fee.

Chrome Warning: Due to a revised chroming process brought on by recent EPA regulations and high labor costs, today's chrome is not the quality of days gone by. Be Aware: Exhaust components which are chrome plated are now much more susceptible to blueing, blistering, peeling & corrosion. No warranty or returns on chrome exhaust items once them have been installed.

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 or a darker gold finish, and in some instances, may even turn dark blue or purple. These colors can be polished out using Blue-Away or Simi-Chrome polish, but please note that when the headers reach running temperature again, they will immediately change color.
