Post subject: Headers for Archie V8 conversion?  PostPosted: Oct 30, 2009 - 03:23 PM

I have my SBC 327 installed with the Archie V8 kit and the current manifolds on it are some block hugger headers. The forward header shouldn't be a problem but the "rear" header is sitting directly over the axle and not enough clearance to run the exhaust pipes. Can anyone suggest a set of headers that work well without breaking the bank?

Thanks...

Hi:

How much vertical gap between header flange and axle?
Consider a 90 degree elbow and custom tubing.

I was looking at that option first but there is only about 2" of clearance right now and there is just no way an elbow will squeeze in there. I was looking at some Chevy S-10 V8 conversion headers thru Jegs Auto because they seem to sweep back a little instead of straight down but I hate buying anything if I am not 100% sure they will fit.

Hi:

There might be (2) things:
- What does Archie do?
- There are Hugger headers that have a couple of vertical height options. Summit Racing Tech help is darned good at giving dimensions and if things do not fit, they may be returned. (please verfy).
- Also a header kit with a flange, pipes and a collector might be used. Bolt the flange in place, mount each pipe and rotate it in place to provide clearance and tack weld. Then place the next pipe..... and finalize with the collector. If needed you can take it to a professional welder and have it finished off.

Sanderson Headers (sandersonheaders.com) sells a CC2 block hugger header that is only 4" tall and would work on your application. They aren't real cheap ($245) but they might be your best option. Check out their website.

Archie calls for Henderson CC90's. I used both their 1 1/2 and 1 5/8 primaries on my setup. I need to sell my 1 1/2" ovals if anyone is interested. They have less than 30 mins of run time. Here's pics on my Fiero transverse setup.
