Header question


Recommended Posts

Then you're SCREWED!!!

 

You need to compare your exhaust ports and bolt pattern to a stock head, because it might be the same. Otherwise, you might have luck searching for other people's solutions to that problem.

 

They will fit... but the plugs wont because they are in the way.

 

Edit no one has angled spark plugs in their Z??

Try going to the Sanderson website directly. They have a HUGE selection of headers for all makes/models. I did a quick search on Dart heads, and it appears that they have a couple headers that will fit your motor. "http://www.sandersonheaders.com/search.php?mode=search&page=1".

 

Hope this helps.

Ok... i also found a cheap alternative. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330479692019

I am going get them ceramic coated and also put exhaust wrap on them. I will let you guys know how it works out.

 

Will update with pics.

I have Trick Flow heads with the angle plugs. I went with a set of

hooker street rod shorty headers with Accel shorty plugs. Every thing is "tight"

and occasionally I have burnt a plug wire but you can run the fabric insulators

if needed.

 

Plug changes are a bit tight, get a short 5/8" wrench to help

facilitate the changes and you'll be fine.

I do i have a set of AFR 210 in my 77 280Z & the headers that i found to work with my setup are from S&S they are long tube 1&3/4" but i have a front plate in my car as well.

Dunlop:

 

Some of the posts may be OVERBLOWN. Purchased KMJ block hugger headers and they fit just fine. I have AFR-195 heads and the exhaust ports are 1.5 inches rectangular. Much larger exhaust port than the opening in the KMJ headers. Sanderson recently cam out with CC-178 headers which are 1 7/8 inch in OUTSIDE diameter. Purchased these and they interfere with the steering shaft. Purchased shafts and U-joints to go around the headers. Got it all mocked up, then said if this is what it is going to take, might as well go to Subaru PS rack. In the early stages of doing that.

 

Don't know the exhaust port configuration of your Dart heads. KMJ block hugger headers can be slightly ported to help the interface to the Dart heads.
