Yes these can be flipped upside down in order to route the exhaust up through the hood. You may need to do some modification to the header flange in order to clear the water plug/sender in the cylinder head.

Part # 9300100 These headers fit many applications and are a smaller 1 ½” diameter tube to primarily work on the round port heads which you will need to verify. Will NOT work with angle plug heads and collector to head pipe clearance needs to be verified by some basic measuring. The dimension furthest out from the head at the top is 3.75”, from the top of the flange to the bottom of the collector is 10”, and the collector sits within an inch of the block right at the pan rail. These headers will not clear clam shell style motor mounts.

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.

Tight-Tubes Extension Kit, Mild Steel
(Part #91013385)
                        Using this kit makes the hook-up of your exhaust system a snap!

They drop 10-1/2" from the header flange and they extend backward 17-1/2" after the 90 degree bend. 

Just trim the length, weld on the 3/8" thick collector flange (included, with gaskets) and you're all set! Works great with any tight-fit headers. Header not included.
