Getting more air into your engine
and more exhaust out is the key to a performance motor. That's
where exhaust headers come in. Exhaust headers do away with the
performance-robbing exhaust manifold that came with your car.
Headers provide each cylinder with its own mini exhaust pipe,
which means exhaust headers prevent the backpressure that occurs
in a common exhaust manifold. When cylinders don't have to fight
each other to expel their exhaust, they can put more power
through the wheels, and a bigger grin on your face. Exhaust
headers come in all shapes and sizes for hundreds of
applications, from leading manufacturers such as Hedman headers,
JBA headers, and Pacesetter headers. Honda headers, Toyota
headers, Mazda headers, and VW headers are all now available to
put the punch in your sport compact. Of course, Hedman hedders,
JBA headers, and Pacesetter headers are produced in a variety of
configurations for Camaro and Firebird, and musclecar headers
are available for many older applications as well. Combined with
a cold air intake and high-flow air filter, adding exhaust
headers is one of the first performance modifications you should
make. You have to cover the basics when you're building up your
motor, and headers should be at the top of your list.
The key to making a great
high-performance exhaust header is getting the exhaust pulses
far enough from each other that they don't interfere with one
another. A good header design, like that found on Apexi headers,
actually helps scavenge the cylinders, sucking out the exhaust.
When you have an Apexi header on your exhaust system, air
pressure from preceding pulses helps to pull burned gasses out
on the next pulses. It's a neat trick managed by the best
headers, like those from Apexi headers. Apexi headers perform
this power boosting exhaust work by taking the exhaust from each
cylinder into its own downpipe. Then the Apexi header pipe joins
with a second cylinder pipe, making a "one into two" junction.
Finally, Apexi headers join all the cylinder exhaust pulses into
a common collector, far enough from the cylinders to prevent
excess backpressure. Combine the engineering found in Apexi
headers with the construction, which is mandrel-bent stainless
steel in all Apexi headers, and you've got a sure-fire winner.
And, when you combine the great performance of Apexi headers
