In a past issue, I explained my personal plight with off-the-shelf header fitment. I’m sure some of you share or have shared in the past some of my frustrations with pipes that hit various “objects” inside the engine compartment (and maybe beyond).
In some car builds, the time comes when you realize there is no way on earth a stock, off-the-shelf header is going to fit. Sure, some can be persuaded to fit by way of modifications (hammer, bigger hammer, moving pipes, etc.), but there are many instances where that won’t even help. Or, the cost of the mods (moving pipes) is more than the cost of the headers.
With Spring around the corner, why don’t we wrap up Winter with come of the coolest products we came across for the month of February.
Justin Dugan’s 2019 Mustang GT is getting some new upgrades. Will it be enough to get it into the 10’s?
The collector system found on a set of race headers might have more to offer than you’d first think.
Perhaps 20 years ago, maybe longer, it wasn’t uncommon to see dedicated drag racers at a test and tune working with adjustable headers.
NHRA’s Funny Car racers knew something wasn’t right when they went to tech their cars in testing before the first races of the 2018 season. They were measured one way; other certain cars were measured in a different manner.
NHRA is intent on policing laid-back headers in its Mello Yello Funny Car category. Initially, they spoke of limiting the minimum angle of the headers to 32 degrees, but settled on 40 degrees to start the 2018 Mello Yello season.
Truck pullers, mud boggers, and demolition derby drivers know that there’s one major problem with regular exhaust systems: They sit low to the ground.
