#BBPT-670 BB Pro Tour header for stock chassis
$1,750.00 – $3,850.00
This header is available in 2” or 2 1/8” tube size with 3 ½” collectors. All of the tubes are inside the frame. Our headers are hand made to order, so we can build them for any engine deck height and for any aftermarket cylinder head as long as the engine stays in the stock location.
On our design car we used ’72-’81 clamshell style motor mounts to design around. The ’70-’71 cars use the earlier style mount which keeps the engine in the same location and offers even more header room. You can also use solid motor mounts which would be Moroso #62630 for the frame and #62515 for the engine. This header will not fit a mid plate.
Ground clearance is excellent. We used a Milodon low profile 7 quart oil pan #30951 and #30956 to design with and the header is higher than the bottom of the pan. These 2 oil pans offer easy access to the oil filter. Measuring from the side of a stock oil pan we have 3 ½” of room for side sump kick outs on the passenger side and 4” of room on the driver side. If your oil pan has a driver side kick out under the oil filter it may make it difficult to remove the filter. With a straight sided pan the filter is easily removed. This header was designed with a Power Master #9540 starter (Nippondenso style) and will not fit with a Hitachi type mini starter or full size GM starter. See starter photos.
This header fits a power brake booster and clutch linkage. It has good clearance from the steering column and excellent spark plug access. It does not fit column shifter linkage.If you have a Lakewood type bell housing you may have to slightly grind the outer lip under the starter for header room.
We offer the Power Master #9540 starters.
From ’70 thru ’81 the Camaro used 2 styles of motor mounts. In ’70, ’71, and ‘72 they used the early style like on the first gen Camaro’s used then later they used clamshell mounts. This header fits both, it also fits Moroso solid mounts. For the ’70-’72 cars use the stock frame stand and Moroso #62530 engine mounts. To replace the clamshell mounts with solid mounts use Moroso #62630 frame mounts and #62515 engine mounts.
This header requires a Power Master #9540 or #9500 starter, it will also fit with a
CVR #5323 starter. It will not fit the original large GM starters.
This header does not fit a mid plate. It does not fit an original factory AC box on the fire wall, but will fit aftermarket air conditioners like Vintage Air. It fits with mechanical clutch linkage, power brake booster, but does not fit column shifter linkage.
Header installation: Pro-Tour Style
If this header is built in the pro-tour style it should be installed with the engine.
