  • Headers

    Quick question, my Dad is looking for headers for his BBC in his Chevelle and was looking into headers. It told him I run ceramic Doug Thorleys in my car and love them but he wants something more economical. I tell him how knowledgeable you guys are all of the time so he asked me to ask you all if Patriot headers are descent? Does anyone run them? Do they have thick flanges and some real girth to them or are they chimsy junk. Thanks

    We can hook him up with some Flow Techs or Patriots.
    They are both "economy" headers.

      I have a set of Summit headers on my wagon and I was very surprised how nice they fit. I think the Summit headers are very simular to the Flow Techs. No coating on mine though.

        Alex, are they even worth getting though? I wish I could talk him into a nice set so this wouldn't be a issue but he wants to build his car on quit a bit tighter budget. If you think they would hold up descent putting about 500 to 1,000 miles a year on his car could you pm a price for a set for a 1972 Chevelle with a auto and 454. Just shipping to my zip will work being he lives 5 miles from me. If you don't still have that I can pm you with it, thanks. Buy the way, I should be ready for the fuel stuff for my car in a couple weeks after I find out how much more Uncle Sam gets on the Dems favorite holiday, April 15th

            Bloose, thanks for the info but for some reason he is against any of the summit brand stuff. My brother has their headers, wires, and ignition box and has had no problems but some people are stuck in their ways on some things I guess.
