  1. Exhaust Systems
    I have an 85 elco. Motor is a stock 350 with the the stock exhaust from the 305. It gets really good low end torque and I wanted to upgrade the exhaust with headers and all that but without ruining how zippy it is in the low rpms. Instead of shifting the power band from low range to high range...

    Tinkering with an 87 el Camino. Would like something that will be fun and last. Need it to get to work, it’s not a race car. I’m working around a 600cfm Edelbrock carb, dual plane Weiland street warrior (I don’t have details on that, it was free and fit.) Now going forward from there I’m...

    Howdy all, I have a 350 from an older GM vehicle in my 1980 elco. I am wondering what y'all are using/would suggest for headers. The 350 still has the basic manifolds and such up to the cat, to which I then ripped it off as it was rusty and now the exhaust just exits right after the cat. I...
  4. Exhaust Systems
    Hello everyone. I'm thinking on putting long tube headers on my lowered 5th gen elco and need some advice. I've put beltech 2" drop spindles on the front and 1" lowering springs on the rear. From what I've read so far installing long tube headers on a lowered el camino is a bad thing because...

    Before I drop 1500 bucks on custom headers I'd like to know if anybody has had luck with off the shelf headers. My 67 has a 496 big block with Brodix heads. I am looking for 2 1/8" headers mid length to long tube. The car is lowered so long tubes may hit over bumps.

    Hola Amigos! So I've done an extensive research as to which headers I should get. Unfortunately I have not found an answer. my question is, which other vehicles I can swap the headers to my v6 229 cid? I'm not looking to up my performance, I rather buy a new motor, bigger too. but like every...

    I'm having trouble with finding exhaust systems and was wondering if anyone has any ideas?? I'm running open headers right now but don't have the back pressure to pull fuel down into the engine (lack of vacuum). I know I don't have a vacuum leak or a problem with my carb as it has been rebuilt...

  12. LT1/LS1/EFI Tech
    I am wondering if anyone used the 2451 hooker headers with their LT1 swap. I currently have stock ex manifolds on but I am rebuilding the engine so it would be a good time to put some headers on :) Thanks krok18

    I was looking at either these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PTE-H8056/ or these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PTE-H8021/ the only difference I see is the port shape (round or oval). I was wondering which is best for the LT1 exhaust ports? Thanks krok

  15. Performance Modifications
    I'm looking for headers for a 454, the hard part is finding them to fit in a 59' El Camino too. The previous owner cut the collector on mine and stuck a pipe out the side of the existing headers. I want to put headers and new stainless steel exhaust in it, but I can't find headers that fit. Can...

    I recently purchaced the Jegster crossmemeber from Jegs to work with my dual exhaust setup. My mechanic informed me it did not mesh well with the Hooker Compitition Headers I was using. I ended up buying the one from Summit Racing and it fit like a glove...both the exhaust location AND the...
