Q & A

What's in the Box

The hobby was amazed by the design, quality and performance of our Small Block Chevy cast iron Tru-Ram® exhaust manifolds. Little did everyone know 'Speedy' Bill had more up his sleeve. These investment cast stainless steel ram horn manifolds feature a fully polished, show-quality finish. Enjoy the performance of tube-headers with the nostalgic look of the ram horn, along with the low maitenance characteristics that stainless steel provides!
  • Provides a tight-fit to minimize steering and clearance issues
  • Same performance as tube headers with classic ram horn styling
  • Offers a distinctive look
  • Fits most round port SBC cylinder heads 
  • Works with most straight or angle plug heads
  • 2-1/2" collector size
  • Includes stainless mounting hardware and gaskets

Application

  1. These do not clear the steering box on 1935-1940 Fords or 1955-1957 Chevy cars.
  2. The exhaust port size is square and large enough for most round port heads. It measures 1.375" x 1.375" and should be sufficient for most small block cylinder heads. Variation in location of spark plugs on aftermarket heads makes it impossible to verify that the Tru-Ram® will fit all heads on the market, but it will clear most straight and angle plug heads.

Notes

  • 3-1/2" from cylinder head surface to outside point
  • 3-1/2" from manifold bolt center to top of header
  • 5-1/2" from manifold bolt center to bottom of collector
  • Exhaust ports are a square configuration just under 1.375" wide and tall

Tight-Fit Stainless Steel Small Block Chevy Block Hugger Headers
SKU-9300107
                        

The most universal shorty header just got better! Now made of durable stainless steel, these tight-fit headers feature a heavy duty 3/8" thick flange to minimize warpage with 1-5/8" diameter primary tubes and 2-1/2" diameter collectors. Block hugger headers are ideal for street rod engine swaps and can make tight installations easy. They tuck in close to the engine block to provide clearance for frame rails, steering boxes and motor mounts, but please see dimension chart to verify fit for your application.

The head flange features tall oval ports, so they will fit a variety of small block Chevy cylinder heads (EXCEPT angle plug heads). The collectors exit parallel with the oil pan rail to provide maximum ground clearance. Headers include gaskets, collector reducers with a 2" diameter outlet, and stainless steel installation hardware.

NOTE: 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 to a darker gold finish and in some instance may even turn dark blue or purple. 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.  

Corvette Style 2-1/2 Inch Ram Horn Exhaust Manifold

These "rams horn" cast iron manifolds were patterned off the 1962-63 327 Corvette but are not OEM remanufactured manifolds. They feature the big 2-1/2" diameter outlets and have provisions to accept original alternator type brackets.

These are a square port configuration with 1-5/8” top to bottom and also side to side. Compare to your head port size for compatibility.

  • 2-1/2" diameter outlets
  • Use on almost any small block application up until the advent of the LS series engines in 1999
