The CC1-5/8" header is designed to fit 1927 and up automobiles with small block Chevrolet engines.
One of our most popular small block Chevy headers. Features a 1-5/8" primary tube diameter and a 3" collector for all but the most radical performance engines.
This header will fit any rack and pinion set-up. Also fits Vega steering and any Mustang-style mounted steering that is mounted with 2" clearance from the steering gear to the center ports on the driver's side. The header will clear any motor mounts, tie rods, or steering rods. Any starter and transmission combination will clear this header except cast iron Powerglides. We also offer a headpipe which simplifies installation in 1928-1934 cars. This is the most compact true performance header offered today. Comes with all hardware necessary for installation.

This header offers 1-5/8" primary tubes, which is good for about 375HP on a casually used 350-400 cubic inch or smaller engine application. For larger or higher horsepower applications we offer other versions of this header with 1-3/4" and 1-7/8" primary tube sizes, and for mild applications we offer a 1½" primary tube header.
Will fit Mustang and Vega style steering as long as there is 2" of clearance between the center exhaust ports and the steering gear.
