Street Rod Tri-Y Headers for Small Block Ford
New headers from the folks at Patriot might just be the answer for that tight engine bay in your small-block Ford powered project. Check out the details below for more.
Patriot Exhaust Products, a Pertronix brand, has recently introduced a New Tri Y design Header part #8473 specifically designed to fit small block Ford V8 engines, tuck very tight to the engine, and achieve maximum ground clearance . These headers are a good alternative for a Street Rod application where space is at a premium and longer tubes for more power are a concern over common block huggers.
These Tri-Y style headers are built with 5/16” thick machined flanges at the cylinder head and 3 bolt outlet flanges. The Oval port, under the chassis exit design is made from 16 gauge tubing for durability with 1 5/8” primaries, 2 ¼” secondary’s and 2 1/2” collectors for increased horsepower and torque.
The H8473 comes in natural raw steel for those that wish to apply their own finish or with Patriot’s very popular metallic ceramic coating for increased resistance to corrosion and thermal fatigue, part number H8482-1. The headers come complete with Patriot’s Header Gaskets, Header Bolts and Reducers. Please contact customer service for a catalog and the name of your local dealer.
