WTB Big block Chevy headers over transom wet
« on: May 12, 2022, 10:56:53 am »
I?m looking for some headers for my jet boat I got mine and I had some old ones given to me but I believe they are bent down or they go down because they are very close to the paint so I was looking for possibly a different style to help me out if anyone has any headers to let Go. Unless these are how they are supposed to be but I?ve never had a boat with that low of headers .

Yeah, that looks a little low. I know the made headers for v-drive boats that would have a different angle, but those went up. That?s the closest I?ve ever seen to the hull. Does your engine sit a bit lower in the hull? It doesn?t look like it, but just a thought.
If you don?t find any here, try the   SoCalJetBoat public group in facebook. You can give Jim at Cyclone Speed and Marine in Pacoima a call. He has used stuff around.

I used a 4x4 block of wood in the exhaust and a floor jack to add a little clearance, but alas, mine were SBC, sprint car headers, and were almost completely shot. It worked for the next several seasons.

Jet boat headers are approx 5* down, as as manufactured, and v-drive are approx 5* up as manufactured, a difference of 10* (approx), just an FYI.
