You are offerding on a Pair of Brand New Southwest Speed Polished Stainless Steel 1970-1988 Chevy Monte Carlo Clipster Headers for Small Block Chevy 262-400ci Engines (SWS Part #440-2141).

These headers are designed primarily for the 70-88 Monte Carlo, as well as fitting many other General Motors vehicles, and are the perfect choice for lowered applications where ground clearance is an issue. The collectors exit toward the rear of the engine compartment and are well above the under carriage of the vehicle, eliminating the chance of the collectors contacting the ground. The unique design of the collector location makes these headers a great choice for many other types of vehicles, such as Trucks, Hot Rods, Rat Rods, Street Rods, and many other vehicles, that include: 1967-1981 Camaro, 1964-1981 Chevelle and Malibu, 1964-1988 El Camino, 1968-1979 Nova, and the 1970-1988 Monte Carlo. Always measure carefully to insure the fitment of the headers before ordering, never order these headers for any application without measuring first. Supplied with 1 5/8" tubes with 3" collectors, and comes complete with header bolts and gaskets and reducer bolts and gaskets. Features .300" Ground parallel flanges on the cylinder head surface, and includes a pair of 3" to 2 1/4" reducers to complete the installation. These Headers will fit angle plug or straight plug head applications using Autolite Shorty Style Spark Plugs or the NKG BR8ECM Spark Plugs.

IMPORTANT: These headers will require the use of Accel shorty spark plugs, Autolite shorty style spark plugs, or NGK BR8ECM short spark plugs to be used for clearance purposes. We are not aware of any other spark plugs that will allow enough clearance at this time. Any attempt to use these headers without the shorty plugs will cause damage to the ignition wires.

Note: We strongly suggest you refer to measurement chart below to insure headers will fit your vehicle and application, before ordering.

Polished Stainless Steel Warning:

Stainless header tubing when exposed to exhaust temperature will cause the finish to change color which will vary with the exhaust temperatures. Please note that the finish of the header when the engine is started will change to a light champagne color to a darker gold finish and in some instance may even turn dark blue or purple. This can be polished out when utilizing Blue-away or Simi-chrome polish, but please note that when the headers reach running temperature, they may change color again. No warranty or returns on polished stainless steel exhaust items once they have been installed.

Header Return Policy:

Please refer to the header measurement chart below to make sure the header will fit your vehicle and application before ordering. In the event you order a header that will not fit your vehicle and application, you may return them for a refund, providing you don't damage the header. When you receive the header the finish will be protected and must remain unscratched for a refund. If you bend or dimple any of the tubes or scratch the finish, we will not be able to sell the header and will not be able to process a refund. Use care when trial fitting headers.
