    These AHC small-block Chevy tight fit headers are the most universal steel tube headers available. These performance headers fit difficult applications where space is limited. They are a favorite for street rods, as well as many 1950's and 1960's cars and vintage trucks. These ceramic coated headers provide superior performance and durability.

    Tight Tuck headers are the solution to many problems associated with engine swaps in modern street rods. Tight Tucks fit in the tightest of engine compartments and clear all stock motor mounts. Most headers are manufactured from durable 16-gauge tubing and comes complete with gaskets, header bolts and collector reducers.

    • Most tight fit header applications require the use of Accel shorty spark plugs
    • Round port
    • Compact design
    • Will NOT fit angle plug heads
    • Includes reducers, gaskets and bolts
    • Armor Hot Coat finish

    These Fel-Pro gaskets work with both cast iron and aluminum heads. Pre-flattened steel wire ring gaskets have the strength of steel wire sealing with minimum brinelling of aluminum heads. Pre-flattened copper wire ring gaskets will not brinell aluminum heads. They offer superior heat dissipation. Multi-layer steel gaskets offer current leading-edge technology and provide a long-term, leakproof seal called Perma Torque MLS.

    • Gaskets are sold each
    • Pre-flattened steel wire
    • Nominal compression thickness: .041"
    • Compressed volume: 9.1 cc
    • 4.166" bore gaskets can be used on 400 race engines with up to 4.155" max bore with minimal chamfer
    • When using aluminum heads, we recommend gaskets with soft copper wire rings (such as 344-1010). This ensures that the aluminum head is not "scarred" by the combustion seal. Shim style 344-1094 will also work well with aluminum heads.

    Designed for 1986 and earlier 262-400 cubic-inch Chevys, the Performer EPS dual-plane manifold is optimized to deliver superior performance over other low-rise dual plane manifolds. This small-block Chevy manifold has a runner design that's "tuned" for peak torque around 3500 rpm on a 350-inch engine and it produces power from off-idle to 5500 rpm.

    Dyno tests showed gains of 5 hp and 9 ft/lbs of torque over the standard Performer manifold on a 350 Chevy. From 3000 to 4500 rpm, the increases averaged 5+ ft/lbs. of torque for more performance where you need it most.

    IMCA racing approved.

                Since its introduction in 1965, the big-block Chevy  engine has been a force to be reckoned with on both the street and  track. Over the past four decades, the big-block has undergone a  constant evolution toward greater efficiency and durability. It's also  picked up more displacement, as General Motors is now offering crate  engines up to 572 ci, and aftermarket versions have gone much larger  still.

    In How to Build Killer Big-Block Chevy Engines, author Tom Dufur reviews the commonly available factory parts along with many aftermarket offerings, and discusses the advantages of both. Additionally, he includes popular buildup recipes and showcases the dyno results, proving theories and sharing in-depth research. Dufur's decades of experience designing, assembling, tuning, and racing the big-block Chevy engine truly shines through. This engine building book includes a wealth of full-color photos, charts, and graphs makes it easy to understand the critical points of these great engines.

    In-depth chapters on design, engine preparation, and assembly show you how to develop your own big-block Chevy to its full potential. Whether your big-block is destined for life in a street car, a race car, or even a boat, the wealth of information in this book will ensure it has ample power and longevity once it's all together.

    Based on the powerful Performer RPM Vortec #7116, single four-barrel intake is designed for 262-400 c.i.d. Chevy V8s with 1996 and later Vortec (L31) cast iron or the new Edelbrock E-Tec aluminum heads.The RPM Air-Gap manifold delivers outstanding performance using the same air-gap technology found in our race-winning Victor manifolds. This unique design separates the hot engine valley from the air/fuel mixture for a cooler, denser charge and more power throughout the rpm range. An external water bypass boss is machined into the front of the water crossover for use on 1996 and later Vortec production engines. Includes rear water outlets, nitrous bosses, a temp sensor boss that clears all waternecks, two distributor clamp locations and a heater outlet boss that's angled for proper fit over the valve cover. Accepts 1976 and later alternator and air-conditioning brackets for street installations. For square-bore carbs. No provision for exhaust-heated chokes and no exhaust crossover. Will not fit under stock Corvette hood. Available with EnduraShine finish.
