I'll be not a problem on FC's... street cars?????? but since 99% of racers are lowered.... most definitely...

Even Clark's Ultimates were reported dragging on many cars... most likely lowered..

As I mentioned the headers need to get cut. You take the flange off and you take it at the weld right where the bend starts and maybe a little more. That will raise the headers and at the same time you can angle them a little so if anything hits it will be only at the bend by the head.

Well,
if they have to be modified, either way, it would be nice if someone would modify them to fit a stock/non-angled exhaust engine, . . . . .
and then made them available to the public.smiling bouncing smiley

Mel. since some will go on small tube heads and other large [ 140 hp ] it's really up to the car owner to get it done...

I stated how to adapt... but with ground clearance issues...

You'll need to cut the tubes below the reducer at the correct length for your car..

Then heat and bend the two outer tubes outward [ see Ken's gasket pic ].

Then weld on Flanges that mimic the Corvair Headers we've been using for years..

Not that bad...especially if you have access to a small muffler shop that welds Stainless tube regularly or a friend with a TIG setup. Even a good MIG welder could do it.

Unfortunately, my neighbor, and the only qualified welder in our little community, passed away this year.sad smiley
Not going to get any "special projects" of that nature done for a while.

It's never too late and you're never to old to take a night class at your local high school or tech college. I did it at 55 and am now certifiable.

Those that know me would tell you that I have always been "Certifiable!" eye rolling smiley grinning smiley
I took welding in High-school, and again in college.
I can make 2 pieces of metal stick together, but they won't be nothing to brag about.
It would take a LOT more classes to get any kind of certification, and the drive from here, to get to any classes would be an ordeal.

Practice, practice, practice. That is what classes are all about. Watch a couple of videos and then go try to imitate them.

Welding is almost like riding a bike, a little wobbly at first but comes back pretty quick if you do a practice piece first.

Sure!! several have been using Porsche headers for years...but on "Angle ported heads"...

Are you following Vairmech's posts?

As I stated earlier.... on standard tubed heads you will need to fab flanges similar to what 99% of Corvair car / buggy headers use...

Cut the Porche flange off as well as the wedges and whatever length of the tubes you need for ground clearance.... obviously an FC will have the best ground clearance.

Then bend the outer tubes to align with the Vair's ports... all very easy...nothing critical as far as dimensions..
