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. These exposed small block Chevy headers work great on rods without hoods, but we’ve also seen them peeking through carefully trimmed hood sides. Each lakester header has a flange so you can connect it to a muffled under-car exhaust when the end plate is on.

  • Fits 265-400 c.i. with standard or Vortec heads including D-port ZZ-4 style heads (not LT-1)
  • 1-5/8" primary
  • 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, but the turn outs are sold seperately.

Application

  • 3-1/2" collector
  • 2" exhaust hook-up

After first startup, these headers are smoking pretty bad, I'm assuming due to the paint, is this normal?

Yes any painted header will smoke quite a bit on first start up and is completely normal. This may happen for the first several start ups depending upon how hot the exhaust temperature is of your engine.

Do you sell the turn outs? If so what is the part number? I could also use the bolt pattern. Thank you.

Yes I have turn outs part number 9300541 which fit these headers. This header uses the 3.5" version. The bolt pattern for the cap or turn out is 4 on 4 1/8" bolt circle.

On the lake style headers number 9300550 we apologize for being limited in muffler devices. The Vortex Cone does minimal muffling and designed for circle track racing to help limit decibel range. Some customers use the 7” extension mufflers and part goes into the header and the other part into the collector. This is a tight fit and others have tried the auger style and ground down the unit to fit into the tapered cone. This also has minimal exhaust sound reduction.

See details below about headers. The dimensioned schematic shows the headers coming off the block horizontally straight out. The picture makes it apear they come of the block down at an angle from straight. What do they do?

There is no downward angle built into the lake style headers. The will come straight at whatever angle the exhaust ports of cylinder head have.

What kind of paint are the plain ones painted with? Is it a high temp paint? Or just an etching primer? Is it black like the photo?

These headers have a high-temp flat black paint applied to them

If I opt to use the turnouts and run no exhaust underneath the vehicle... are there end plates made for the collectors on the bottom that can be installed? Or are there headers available in that format?

This header comes with a flange that bolts to the bottom exhaust exit. It is intended to be welded to a piece of 2" exhaust tubing but you could weld a plate to it making it into a cap.

No warranty or returns on chrome exhaust items once them have been installed.
