What header is this?

Post by friedman » Sat Jan 05, 2019 10:34 am

Came on the blue spider, has a single downpipe that goes to an early center line exhaust but fits on a 2L motor.

I would wager that is a Pacesetter header, I have one, was made in Greece!

--I agree with Keith. It looks like a 4-1 Pacesetter. Good for sustained, high speed. Yours looks like in goes into a very restrictive downpipe. Looks like someone welded on an adapter to a rather restrictive transition pipe under the car.

I'm guessing it was for a 2L block but the down pipe was made to match up with the early style exhaust that goes down the center of the car. Will probably not use it and just go with an early 4-2-1 manifold/downpipe which I have done on all my other 2L builds.

It may be a PAECO. If so it will fall off when you’re driving.

anyone have a photos of a Kirk header? I had a Kirk 4-1 header on my old '74 124 Spider...similar, but built stout & collected to a 2" elbow.
