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).

Item Details

1-5/8" Primaries, 3-1/2" Collectors

Application

  • 1-5/8" primary
  • 3-1/2" collector
  • 2" exhaust hook-up

Use the illustration below with these measurements:

Lake Style Headers Diagram (GIF) 

  • A = 6-1/2"
  • B = 4-1/4"
  • C = 28-1/2"
  • D = 11"
  • 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.

Go With CHROME...

April 30, 2015
Packaged Nice, finish is nice but more like aluminum, if you were going to paint them then AHC is better, but I wish I had gone with chrome. Do not care for the preinstalled flange for a exhaust pipe, this should be an option. Really like the look the car.
Pros:
  • Clean And Easy To Install
Cons:
  • Aluminum Look
Yes, I recommend this product.

Awsome Old School look

February 11, 2015
Bought these Lake style Headers to bring back the old school look. They look and sound great. Put baffles in for every day cruising pretty loud without baffles. Also added the end tips which look great and also divert the sound down should you decide to utilize. Product quality seems really good nice thick flanges. Nice coating no scratches. Highly recommend.
Pros:
  • Great quality
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great headers, sound great too.

September 22, 2013
Great sounding w/o any baffle, but you can add the Speedway auger baffles with a little grinding and they sound great!!! Keeps the cops away too!! I wish the headers were avalible with out the bottom flange. I put over 5,000 miles on my car this summer with these pipes, they sound sweet!! Would recomend and will buy again for my next car project.
Pros:
  • the finish is great on the ahc
  • thick flanges
Cons:
  • bonneville salt kills the ahc coating.
  • adding the tip adds a lot of cost to the exaust
Yes, I recommend this product.

Speedway has baffles but are currently on back order, supposed to be in this month. These baffles seem to be complete without having to weld on the flanges to the baffles. I did not want to wait so I purchased a set of baffles from carchemistry for $109.00, work great, but you have to have the flanges tack welded on.

I do have some muffler inserts for these coming soon. They are not available quite yet but should be very soon. The part number for them is 9303845. Give us a call in a couple weeks to check the status on these inserts.

Sorry our AHC coating is only available in silver. If you would like to buy painted headers such as 9300550 you could send them to a coating company that may offer other colors of ceramic coating.

Sorry, we do not have a list of applications these headers will fit. We do offer the following measurements to help determine fit: Width of header at widest point from exhaust port - 7" at front side and 17" at rear Height of header from top of flange to lowest point - 0" Length of header from front of flange to collector - 29"

Part number 9300550H The small block lake style headers works with standard port small block Chevy engines including the LT1. The headers will not work with some of the crate engine heads or the Fastburn or D port heads. If a standard small block header or manifold gasket matches your head configuration the headers should work fine.

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.
