Constructed from cold-rolled, flash-controlled 16-gauge steel tubing and finished with a black satin paint or silver ceramic heat resistant coating these headers are equipped with an O-ring port seal and 5/16" flanges that are heavy enough to maintain complete integrity, yet pliable enough to create a leak free seal.
