1 5/8 dia tube THERMAL COATED

Order by PART# 1900SOL
DELUXE PERFORMANCE VERSION FOR THE SOLEX 2000
Our header pipes do NOT rest against, vibrate and cook the oil pan like other headers. When buying a header always ask for a photo before buying. See our photo last in the series here.
Ken Kawabata's, Rebello built 2000, makes 214 BHP at the flywheel and 180 ft lbs of torque.
We of course built this header specifically for Dave & Ken. Now you can enjoy the benefits as well!
Mike Smith, in Oregon, who runs SVRA had stock valves and a stock
1 1/2" diameter tube Tri-mil header performed a dyno test and documented horsepower and torque readings
He then added our over-sized Manley stainless steel valve set and our 1 5/8" diameter tube header and experienced an increase, after the change on the dyno to our product, of 10 ft lbs of torque and 12 more horse at 4,000. It increased the bottom end performance significantly! He also experienced an increase of horsepower overall topping out at 203 bhp at the flywheel
There is most likely a better tuned header in Australia priced at $1200.00 to $1500.00 Australian dollars.((A picture was forwarded to me by a forum member who asked permission from another forum member, mtresillian, who posted it on the forum)).
The question then exactly is what are the advantages of horse power/torque increases that have been documented, ease of fitment on a left hand drive car and consideration of the extra money that will be spent to obtain these advantages? That would be for each individual to decide what is in their budget and to follow up with a purchase accordingly.
Excellent quality. Precision holes and mounting. Machine ground 15MM thick header flange. AC/Tri Mil could not make. NO extra weld on tabs like other header brands.
Dave Rebello, an expert in engine rebuilding, prefers to run 1 5/8" diameter tube headers on 2000 engines".
Far superior to The AC Industries/Tri Mil version which had interference issues with the Solex manifold just about everywhere and required grinding the manifold for fitment OUCH!
Our all new header fits perfectly. Yes we checked the control sample and it is perfect.
This header does NOT come with any paper gaskets like the stock diameter pipe headers. This is a performance part and we recommend our, heavy duty metal sheathed gaskets. Click link at bottom of page
Collector included. Optional flex-pipe available separately.
Precision Laser cut 15MM thick top plate flange same as Aluminum Datsun manifold thickness. No extra welded on tabs like other headers so you get a more sturdy flange like the factory manifold and a cleaner look.
1400 degree coating can discolor or lose its shiny appearance at 1000 degrees.
Be sure to add on the 2370 gasket kit to this part when ordering.
