What's in the Box

Info

These small block Chevy tight-fit headers are the most universal steel tube shorty headers available. They even fit difficult applications where space is limited. The block hugger headers are a favorite for street rods, as well as many 1950s and 1960s cars and vintage trucks.

  • Most tight fit header applications require the use of Accel shorty spark plugs
  • Compact design
  • Will NOT fit angle plug heads
  • Includes reducers, gaskets and bolts
  • 1-5/8" primary tubes
  • 2-1/2" collector
  • Head Flange Thickness:  0.35"

These typically have clearance issues with the crossmember and the exhaust pipe connecting to the headers. You would be better off with the clipster headers 9300108 for your pickup.

These are painted black with high temp paint. It will last for a short time but if you are after a long lasting coating you will need ceramic coating such as our AHC coated headers 9300101H.

For fit to your application some dimensions to check are as follows: From head surface to furthest point outward is 4” and from top of head flange to bottom of the collector is 10”. The collector flange sits approximately ½” from the block. You will need to measure your application to allow for clearance for the collector reducer and adjoining pipe to verify fit.

These are actually a rectangular shaped exhaust flange with rounded corners. These work on nearly all stock small block Chevy heads and many aftermarket heads. The exhaust port shape is not actually round on this header.
