5 Must-Do Hacks for Building Headers: Finnegan's Garage Ep.130 

Ganger 165 k
99% 9 700 59

Next week I'm going to finally make my 1967 Chevrolet C10 run and move under its own power. I'm bringing a couple of friends into the garage so that we can knock out a bunch of work to finish the truck. In the meantime, Newbern and I created a new pair of headers from scratch using a kit from Stainless Headers Mfr, a company we frequently order from. The parts are made of 304 stainless steel and feature mandrel-bent tubes, merge-collectors and lots of quality US-made parts.


We also once again relied on the Furick Markout Pro tool to precisely measure our tubing before we cut it.


Those amazing Chevy LT4 header flanges came from MRC Fabrication @mrcfabbullard

That crazy billet aluminum sequential gearbox came from www.6xdgearbox.com

Check back in next week for a bunch of new content as we make one big final push to get the C10 on the road. Thanks for watching!

I mean 8-1 out the hood would have been cool but idk ... if you want to drive it this setup kinda makes sense (tanner foust passat drift taxi sounds insane LS7 8-1 exhaust)

is there any information that dictates how each cylinder connects to which place in the collector to facilitate scavenging effect? or is it just however it fits the vehicle?

Highly recommend 5/8 drywall on your ceiling. Say you go to bed after welding and there's a small spark you have nothing to slow a fire through ceiling/floor of home

Compulsory education for anyone who builds headers for their race engine is the original book written by the famous Phil Irving (Keith Duckworth was his apprentice), Tuning for Speed. In that he gives us the formula for header design...pipe diameter, runner lengths, collector diameter and length, all based on intake flow, cam parameters and valve to port flow rates. Some engines respond to headers, some do not because their heads flow badly so it makes no difference. And all the advantage will be from 5000rpm up. For a cruiser, it probably just a vanity accessory.

I don't think that backpurging an exhaust on a non-turbo car makes much difference. Prettier, and more "proper", for sure, but Nascar or F1, this isn't.

You can always use flexible turbo pipe, radiator tube, etc. to wrap around the exhaust so the spacing is more consistent. A rag works though.

Glad to hear so much progress is on the way for the C-10! Am surprised though that it looked like the primary tube for cylinder 8 was a little shorter than the other guys and I was under the impression that would hurt scavenging, figured it would help to have it come forward to meet the other pipes and match the length. Can’t wait to see this thing fired up!

My buddy 3d printed a bunch of snap together standard bends for figuring out headers in a few turbo vehicles, he was also running fluid dynamic software to make sure pressure pulses weren't effecting each other, so way easier then build for fitment then re-figure for fitment and max power, toss me a message I'll see if he can build you a set

Best thing I did started useing blue lock on header bolts never a blown gasket again. Tighten from inside to outside get bolts very tight and no problems iron or alum heads. Also I use blue lock tight on most all bolts, oil pan, balancer, timing cover, fly wheel, header, distrubtor and more. Do the job right tight and once.

I bought some flanges from stainless headers for a turbo V6 build, the experience left me a bit sour about them. Unfortunately they only offered one style of that flange, and the quality was lacking to the degree that I spent days developing my own flanges for the engine and had them laser cut more accurately.

I was always under the impression that each port had to have the same length header tube for the most efficient evacuation, is that not correct? Great work BTW, love to se the quality of your fabbing guys 🇷🇴🇬🇧👍🏻

Too bad freiburger never had the mindset of actually finishing a project. Between the ramp trucks , blasphemi, and game over, you are actually knocking work out. Most shows can't say that. I'm impressed.

When building the headers did y'all sequence the primaries into the collector based on the engine's firing order? I've heard it can help with scavenging, but am curious to hear your opinion. Thank you kindly! Awesome content! 🤘😎🤙

A less expensive and more forgiving alternative for headers is using schedule pipe. It's thick enough it dosn't warp much, you can use a mig welder, you don't need to purge it (although it's a good idea), comes in all sorts of bends the one major drawback is it's quite heavy. Makes good short-mid length turbo headers but might not be practical for full long tube headers.

I was once told by a old hot roder that when it comes to building headers it’s important to try to keep all of the tubing equal length for proper tuning. Is that in fact a necessity? Curious because i want to build my own.

GARAGE79R 5 måneder siden
Had a customer bring me one of the SHM kits to build headers. Flanges were not flat to begin with. Then I had cut and grind alot of material off to get them to actually bolt onto the motor. Part of that was head studs but the main part was they fouled on the plugs. Oh and not all the holes lined up so I had to open some of them up. Definitely shit flanges compared to who made yours. Then the SHM kit uses Rathgibson tubing and they never weld perfect there is always some contaminates coming up in the weld puddle. Ive seen this before and it's just strange, I dont have this issue with higher quality stainless, or hell even the cheap Vibrant tubing welds cleaner. The collectors were pretty decent tho.

my question would be: how long do the pipes on the individual cylinders have to be? I heard they should all be the same length? how do you measure that? and the second question: do you write down the individual measurements so that someone who wants to replicate this could possibly get these measurements from you?

What's the purpose of equal length headers and why didn't you go that route? Is it unnecessary in a forced induction engine like the LS1?
