Cyclone / Stinger? headers
Posted by: Bobdudeman ()

Hey guys I came across a set of old Cyclone headers in really nice shape. They are from a local vendor here. If you are not familiar with him they come out and then straight back off of the heads. Interesting design and I wonder what the pros are cons are on these versus the Clark's performance headers. I like this style and figured I could get my own mufflers for them or super traps for that

I thought I saw on here recently that Clarks is out of stock on their best headers.

They look like they would give decent ground clearance as well.

Are you sure those are "Cyclone" headers? I thought the Cyclone were a bit more 'curvy', like a ball of snakes.

My Dad's buggy has Cyclone headers, I think

From what I understand these work pretty well. Can be harder to keep sealed without some minor mods to the flanges, like bending them similar the Clark's headers. I've been trying to find a set similar to these since I'm lowered and I'm worried about ground clearance on the Clark's units.

Those are much like the Thunderbird brand headers. They do seem like to have slightly better ground clearance as mentioned. Not particularly 'mandrel' type bends.

Looks like the IECO headers

I have a set just like those but are a little rusty. Would sand blast and clean up nice. I have no idea their value. Am open to offers by PM.

I ran a set virtually identical to those on my 63 for many years.. they had good ground clearance and I was able to trim my lower shrouds and run them..I did weld a flat washer on the flange to give a little preload to the donut..sealed up well,,I mounted them facing forward with a 180 degree pipe bend to the mufflers my headers were made by Runyan

I ran a set like that early on with my old blue race car. They work better than the stock manifold.

I have a set of those in perfect condition on my 65 AutoX car. They are LOUD without mufflers. I put a set of Super Trapp 13" on mine with 12 plates. Still loud but track legal, just. Did not dyno before and after so I don't know if they affected performance but they do sound cool. Be aware, to get the nuts on the studs will require that all three nuts o on very loose before tightening to torque. Only a wrench will fit so it's a little slow. Not a quick swap.

I am also running a setup like these, reversed and tied into a set of extractors.

My car is significantly lowered and I needed "max" clearance, so the custom built exhaust (by LeVair Performance/Micheal LeVeque) was designed and twisted upward all exits the body through custom rear panel cutouts.

I love the sounds of the Large tipped Trombones but needed to do away with the 140 exhaust logs to take more advantage of the overbore and exhaust porting work to the heads.

Rick, nice job on the tail pipes exiting the body, it's not easy to get it to come out that well.

Thanks for the positive comments, give me a wrench and I can probably tell you a bunch of stories about the manufacturer and the history of variations over the years...but don't ask me to use it.

I am not much of a mechanic...but I have a mind full of ideas...

I "envisioned" the dual trombones years ago and had the left side lower panel cut out to match the factory Spyder right side cutout exactly.

I collected the parts and when it was time, had the exhaust done with the other custom work at LeVair Performance by Micheal LeVeque.
