maybe Jere Stahl was the first guy to make header design a science, he might have also been the guy who developed the reversion plate for 1-7/8 tubes although I have an old set of Hooker race headers with a similar plate, when it came time for headers on my latest motor I called Stahl who would not budge on design so I went to a local guy who built me triple step headers. hard to believe you couldn`t find a fabricator to build you a set of headers down under.

I was thinkin' that too, but the big racers I know in OZ are all in Queensland (east coast). But some did travel west to Perth at least once a year - mostly dragsters. One was a super welder/builder - based in Bundy. Another mate in NZ build dragsters and ships to OZ.

Keep thinkin':

Yes gents you are right! I can find someone here in Oz, but mainly East coast based. I know of some fabricators in my state but really opinionated about what to do or don't.
I want to keep the side exits they wont !! But I am not giving up, yet! As you know, lot of shops will say that they are the best, but rarely can back it up with facts .
And at the prices that they are asking for a set , I want proofs of efficiency of their systems first.
I have enough of blindly paying just to be disappointed later on.

Hence why I am looking at what is available of the shelf, maybe not the best but kind of easier .

Red, would you have please a picture of the triple steps header ?? I read articles from Grumpy web site about them and that really interest me .

Schoenfeld makes a bunch of Tri-Y headers for various blocks, and uses IMSA, Dirt, etc Give them a look-see and you'll get a good idea of the 4-2-1 setup. I note they run from just under 200 USD to well over 600 + shipping!

Maybe a set of flanges and take up TIG welding?
I've got those neat clamps for 1 5/8 tube!

Wow - It just occurred to me! Flash of brilliance (it may fizzle, but here goes).

Bangkok Dean, a member here, was working stainless steel headers in Thailand. I don't know what his status is - or if I even remembered that right. But maybe drop him a note and see "what's-what." Side pipe headers stainless - can't be any better than that. A quick Air Asia hop to Bangkok, a little vacate, back with the goods.

Cheers - Jim

Dean makes shields for sidepipes but he might know someone.

Thanks for the replies guys, much appreciated.
I will be in touch with an exhaust fabricator that I found through the speedway guys, we will see.
And Thailand is next door, but my wife says no !! Wonder why ??
Should talk to Schoenfeld as well.

Anyway, I wish you all a Happy New Year.
