Hot deal on Stainless CAR headers!! $110 free ship!

These are what the Slant Tube racers use....BUT I'm pretty sure they are close enough on Bore Spacing that they can be used on stock exhaust port heads by fabbing new head tubes with a flange?

If you are going to contact the seller, just tell'em to make some Corvair headers, and we can skip out on modifying Porsche headers!

I am looking into making a copy of the Clarks Ultimate headers in SS. Any interest? Once the bends are figured out, additional copies should be a decent price.

Clicking on his other items he has headers for just about everything except Corvairs. Someone should contact him to see if he has a contact in the header fabrication business

I thought I saw 1.5” primary headers on another listing, which seems about as close as we can get for a 1.3” exhaust valve. Still need machine work.

Yes, I guess the keyword in the title, is, . . . "CAR headers"!eye rolling smiley
NOT Corvair headers!sad smiley
We have a tendency to read into something what we want to see.moody smiley

Continuous diameter of the primaries or stepped? Having them stepped from 1 1/2" to 1 3/8" (or similar) would be cool. It would be interesting to see the cost/price.

Chris I don't think the market is big enough to pay Dyno time to figure placement of the steps....

Besides... useless at low rpms..

For stock exhaust port Vair heads...you only need big enough to prevent back pressure... the heads kill any gains after that...

The best performance gain I ever witnessed was on a supposedly stock 140 out of a wrecked car...

Individual air filters....Mallory distributor [ better advance curve ] VW flywheel [ lighter ] cut down fan and a "sequential" header.... each succeeding cylinder emptied into and ever larger tube downstream of the previous firing cylinder...

Tube lenghts didn't seem to matter.. nor which cylinder was first or last..

Forget the numbers... but was under 160 most likely, and under 6,000 rpm...

OK, I got 2!!!! sets in today. It won't take much to make these fit on a Corvair race car. They actually look pretty nice and are non magnetic on the pipes but the flanges are magnetic.



Here is Dave Clemens angle port adapter sitting on top of the headers.


Here is the gasket that was sent with the headers sitting on top of the angle port adapter.


They will need to be shortened to work on the Corvair and there is a nice weld to cut just in the right spot!


Overall they look real nice. The welds are done well even inside the collector.

They probably are not quite like factory so the Porche guys probably don't like them other than the cheap ones. I don't think they are junk! They actually look nice to me but then I'm a Corvair guy, what can I say?
