Performance Headers
  • Reduce back pressure
  • Help engine "breathe" better to increase power and gas mileage
  • Available in high-temperature electrostatic Black Painted or Ceramic-Coated finishes
Great for better performance and faster acceleration in older vehicles. Self-scavenging 4-tube headers allow smoother flow of exhaust gases. Individually tuned for optimum balance of engine's intake/exhaust system. Mandrel bent tubing for low resistance exhaust flow. Ceramic-coated finish forms a thermal barrier to hold exhaust temperatures within the header. Large 2-1/2" or 3" diameter collector bolts directly to oversized 2-1/4" extension pipes. Check local emission laws before ordering. NOTE: Not legal for sale or use on California pollution-controlled motor vehicles. This product is intended for off-road or racing use only and is not intended or applicable for highway use.

"The JCW search engine took me right to this page for 1980 El Camino SS. I don't see any note as to whether or not they fit Auto/manual transmission vehicles, so I tried them. I got them to fit in the car with a little dinging with a ball peen hammer to clear the frame rails, VERY tight on the passenger side!!! Even with a G-force dual exhaust crossover transmission mount I couldn't route the right side exhaust past the clutch linkage on my 4 speed tranny vehicle. I had to take it to a muffler shop and have them specially fabricate a right side collector adapter to clear the clutch linkage. The shop guy says I should have ordered an earlier B body set... oh well."

"I haven't ran my car yet, (79 Ford F-150: 5.0 302), but in order to bolt the headers on...i had to take out the starter, the support bar on the way to the trans (from the front of the truck), and disconnect the clutch. even with all that, the paint still got scratched up, and messed up.
I'm not sure if you are buying these for the paint job...(i wasn't, so it didn't bother me) but in my car at least, it's not gonna survive.
the directions were fairly ambiguous. and not tailored to your vehicle, even though they are "custom fitted". i had to install the passenger side header from under the car which had to be jacked up, like the directions said. but i had to install the drivers side from up top, while those were supposed to be installed from the bottom as well.
I bought the heartthrob exhaust kit made specifically for long tube headers...and now the kit doesn't fit because the collecters on the headers sit too low, and the outreaching pipes can't clear the transmission support bar.
Over all, these are a so-so buy, again for my type of vehicle at least. the effort put in is absolutely ridiculous, and it's now thrown off the rest of my purchase. I wouldn't recommend buying these if you have the same vehicle as me, but im sure they work for other people."
Pros: Look good, everything is aligned right. bolt holes match up. nothing was missing.
Cons: BARELY fit. plus now, my exhuast pipes don't fit.
