Chevrolet Big Block 396-454 Straight Lake Header Kit


Includes One Straight Lake Header Kit for the Big Block Chevrolet 396, 400, 427, 454 hot rod motor (see motor applications below).  These flanges are cut with a CNC HD (High Definition) Plasma cutter out of 3/8” Pickled and Oiled (P&O) steel.  P&O material is hot rolled steel that has been dipped in acid to remove the mill scale and then a light coated lightly with oil to prevent rusting.  The end result is less work to clean off the mill scale as needed with hot rolled mild steel.


Kit includes: 

1 pair – 30″ long steel megaphones (1-5/8″ inlet & 3-1/2″ outlet) – 4″ outlet available upon request

2 – 2″ OD, 0.065″ wall plain steel (not aluminized!) 70 degree mandrel bends

6 – 2″ OD, 0.065, 10″ long plain steel tubing

    Awesome thick flanges, reasonably priced out, the only thing id consider would possibly throwing in two extra tubes for the beginners that want to try it out themselves, no room for error with only the right amount of material.
