#BBPT-660 BB Pro Tour header for Detroit Speed & Engineering chassis
$1,750.00 – $3,850.00
This header is available in 2” or 2 1/8” tube sizes with a 3 ½” collectors, also in a 2 ¼” tube size with 4” collectors. All of our headers are hand made so we can build them for any engine deck height and any cylinder head in any tube size you need.
It has excellent ground clearance and spark plug access. It is designed for aftermarket oil pans with side sump kick outs, the available room from the side of a stock oil pan is 4 ½” on the drivers side and 5 ¼” on the passengers side. On our design car we used a Milodon low profile oil pan #30951 or #30956 and the bottom of the header was even with the bottom of the oil pan. These oil pans allow easy access to the oil filter. This header requires a mini starter.
This design fits either small block or big block side motor mounts or motor plates, clutch linkage and up to a 9” power brake booster. When installing your steering column the upper “U” joint needs to be approximately 5” to 5 ½” from the firewall or in the same location as the factory steering column rag joint, which will allow the column to easily clear the header. If your car has a Lakewood style scatter shield you may have to trim the outer edge of it under the starter area.
This header will not fit a factory air conditioning box on the firewall, or a full size GM factory starter or column shifter linkage or steering column lock out linkage. It requires that the engine be in the correct position. Either on small block or big block motor mounts. It will also fit motor plates. Steering column top U joint has to be 5” to 5 ½” from the fire wall so that the column will clear the header.
We recommend Milodon #30951 or #30956 oil pans. This header requires a mini starter and is limited to a 9” power brake booster.
