  • Exhaust: headers

    does anyone make headers for 259-289- engines?

  • #2
    Not unless they were custom made. About the only headers available are the R3 style cast iron headers which are not easy or inexpensive to find. Without some serious head work and smoothing the roughness from the inside of the headers you won't see much improvement in performance anyway.

      Again, Phil Harris at Fairborn Studebaker will be the best place for the iron R3 manifolds.
      Tube headers..as has been said, go buy some tubing and get out your welder.

        Most people that have experimented with headers on a Studebaker V-8 have concluded that there is little or no gain. If the engine is heavily modified you may benefit, but some really well performing engines still use the stock manifolds.
