Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Header?
A Header is a specially designed exhaust manifold which improves engine efficiency and power by allowing the exhaust gases to escape from each cylinder in a faster more efficient manner.
Factory fitted exhaust manifolds are mass produced items which sacrifice engine efficiency and power output in favour of low cost production. The result of these restrictive manifolds are excessive turbulence and back pressure, reducing fresh intake volume into the combustion chamber, making the motor work harder to gain power.Less fresh intake – Low efficiency/Reduced power / Higher strain on motor / Higher engine temperatures.
Headers are designed to increase power and economy by allowing the exhaust gases to flow freely from each cylinder, therefore increasing the amount of fresh intake charge into the combustion chamber.
Fresher intake – making you vehicle more efficiency/increased power/less strain on motor/reduced engine temperatures.
