Hey Phillip,
Thanks for replying. and I appreciate the info you gave me over the phone. I guess I did not take into conisderation how low the car sits. I will keep yall in mind though. Again, it was nice talking to you and if I do decide to just purchase the weld-up kit, I will let yall know.

Chris

The tubes are about 24" long then the collector.

JMO

Zip.
thats what most everyone Runs up here in the 10.5 class and other Big hp applications..I also run this fender well type header on my Nova and will never go back to under the car type headers on this type car..very little fumes to fight breathing and the noise level is reduced drastically...but you will see people standing outside the car holding their ears.. just the same with Zoomies
Hey Brian and Zip, I will look into those. Brian I will give that guy a call today and see what we can work out.

Default fenderwells.

hey chris depending on the fuel you run... if its methanol, i would go with a fenderwell exit hedder. just so the fumes dont run you out of the car. the opel being a small car with small interior. you would want all the ventilation you can get.so like a lot of other have said on here a side exit fenderwell would be best! methanol is a pain if you cant breathe trying to stage the car!!!!!!

Phillip, do you guys sell a weld up kit that comes out and exits above the running board for a SBC 27 roadster?

Sorry for the Hijack Chris.

Oh, and welcome to the forum Phillip. Glad to see people from the manufacturers here.
