HEADERS FD 2" LEFT & RIGHT HAND DRIVE HEADERS
« on: November 04, 2018, 01:23:55 AM »
I've been working on these for a few months now and I want to release these in the next month or so. I've revised these 3 times now and im pretty happy with the end result! They fit really well!
Unlike the JTR headers you won't have to beat in the driver side floor pan in to make them fit!

The last JPEG model is of revise 2. The spark plug clearance was bad on cylinder number one so we made the changes necessary to the front tube to resemble what you see in the picture of R3.

The tubes you see in the photos are pre-production sets that have been modified to become revision 3 models. The production tubes will not have any splices in them. One piece all the way!

I've done these in both 16 gauge and 20 gauge for comparison. I feel the 16 gauge is a little heavy because of how long the tubes are, but are easy to work with. How ever the 20 gauge 304 stainless is very light but must be mig welded in order to be assembled in a way that's efficient.


-2" SS tubes 3.5" collector
-I'm also going to offer these with no collector. This way you can use your own slip fit merge collector.

- fits both right and left hand drive cars
- all spark plug boots have good clearance
- Starter can be removed without taking the header off

Im building 20 sets of these on the first run.

Keep in mind that these are just hand built samples. The production version will have no splices any where in the tube.

Over 32" They only work well with a 4 into 1 collector. Just so you know a try-Y merge set up is not work well with tubes this long.

$1300 is what I need to get for them to make $ but ultimately the market will decide the price not me.

How does ground clearance compare to JTR?  Especially the drivers side.

All the jtr headers I fit always hit the floor pan on the left side. I've moved these down to clear the floor pan and there as close as I feel comfortable with. The right could of gone up alot more but instead I bought those down as well to mach the ground clearance on the right side. The cars that are really low are going to have a problem with these if they don't switch to at least 650 spring.

Can you make a 1 7/8" stepped up to a 2" primary?  The only cars that are going to really need a primary this big are 427ci+ max effort setups.    Are the collectors going to have a velocity cone in them?  Vband?
