    Do It Once, Do It Right

    Hedman Elite Headers are the best you can buy. They have thicker flanges, stronger tubing, and thermal coating to withstand full-throttle thrashing and torturous towing. Their extreme-duty construction protects against burnout and exhaust leaks caused by the excessive heat and vibration of high-performance applications. Elite Headers outlast and outperform ordinary headers. All Hedman street headers are made in the USA with a 5-year coating warranty and lifetime product defect warranty.

    Note: Installing coated headers on an engine during the break-in period will cause discoloration. It is recommended that the factory manifolds or an old set of headers are used while breaking in an engine.

    Features
    • Hefty 3/8" flanges
    • Shorty or full-length design
    • Thick wall 14-gauge primary tubes
    • Built to withstand tough applications
    • HTC thermal coating with 5-year warranty
    • Lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects

    JEGS Easy Kits are designed by JEGS high performance racing professionals to help you get all the performance parts you need for your race car, hot rod or truck.

    Will these headers work with stock Z bar for manual transmission as well as a T5 transmission conversion? Also ad states ball flange collector ,but pic doesn't reflect that .Please clarify!

    Asked by: Ronster686973
    Yes, this should fit your application. These do have the ball flange collector. It is new and the images have not been updated yet.

    Asked by: Jesse_T
    Any universal pipe could be used with these. There is not a bolt on pipe available for this.
