What are exhaust manifolds for?

Boost Horsepower and torque, and Save on Gas with Headers and Exhaust System Modifications!"

Replacing a vehicle’s headers and exhaust is a way to add horsepower and torque, and it will also increase your vehicle’s volume. Want a car that sounds like an American muscle car should? This header will help your vehicle achieve that and it can add up to 8-20 horsepower.

Install an exhaust system means about a 0.5 mpg gas mileage improvement. While that might not sound like much, consider this: If gas costs $3 a gallon, and you drive this truck 15,000 miles a year, you’re saving yourself about $85 a year on gas. In five years, you’ll have saved nearly enough money to pay for a complete cat-back exhaust system.

Sharing and affirmation from customers

Exhaust HeaderExhaust Header

Exhaust Header VS Manifold, which is the better choice?

The structural differences between exhaust headers and manifolds are the material and size. From the material, exhaust headers are made of lighter, thinner steel, while exhaust manifolds are made of thick iron. Exhaust headers are also longer than exhaust manifolds. When in use, exhaust manifolds create back pressure, which lowers performance. Because each cylinder of the engine is given its own tube, however, headers eliminate this problem; thus, allowing the gases to exit without the creation of back pressure. Therefore, exhaust headers are a BETTER choice than an exhaust manifold.

Very tight fit.

Very tight fit. Installed on a 55 Chevy 210, driver side had to go up from under car. Driver side has less then 1/8 inch between the steering box. Read that a lot of guys run into this. Passenger side again idler arm bolt are about the same. Little to close to make me very happy but ok. Metric bolts, well ok. bolt going through header flange, some hard to get a box wrench on to make sure there tight, need a little more space or slight dent right there. But looks good and for the price I will give 4 1/2 stars. But again, I would have liked a little more room between the steering box and the idler arm bolts.

Hi, I apologize for the inconvenience. We'll collect your suggestions and give them back to our developers. Looking forward to receiving your feedback images! Thanks!
Have a nice life!
