Description:
All FLOWTECH Headers are constructed from specially selected lengths of mandrel bent primary tubing, precision die cut exhaust port flanges, and four-into-one mandrel formed collectors. These components are then precisely assembled and welded in specially designed fixtures. FLOWTECH maintains strict quality control at all levels of fabrication and assembly; then each header is leak tested to assure problem free performance. After passing quality control testing, each set is then finished with an electrostatically applied paint.

Review 1 of 34

Price Paid:  $130.00 from c performance

Year / Model Reviewed:
 66 chevy nova

Strengths:
none. good waste of your hard earned dollars.if you think they are cheap,wait till you see how long and what you got to do to put this crap on, if you can.

Weaknesses:
to start with the welds are at best horrible. tech support (woody) told the truth when i asked for help,he told me he did not know.then woddy tried to brow beat me with the usual crap, wrong mounts,steering box differances,was the engine ment for that car,on and on.we already put the right side header on,no problem.i guess from what i have read here i better check to see if they finished attempting to weld it completly. now we can't send them back so lets see what it takes to instal the flowtech left header for a 64-67 chevy nova ss.first you take a 1 and 1half in.hole saw and saw the no.3 cylinder pipe(second pipe back on left side ) in half 8 in. down from engine flange,this makes a nice fitted joint.you'll probly need a joint after doing this.next go down to the collector and remove the rest of that pie.weld suitable plug to close that hole.next we grind the weld off of engine flange.now rotate no. 3 pipie to no.1 pipe,mark where 1 and 3 join.remove no 3 fitting and cut a hole inside the line you just marked.now put no.3 fitting back in hole it came from.rotate fitting till it wraps around no.1 tube.now weld the tubes together followed welding the flange.now you have increased the clearance by 1 and three quarters in between the steering box and the flowtech header you proudly own.now that you have 3 pipe headers you now have all the room you need to clear the steering box.you may now instal the header efortlesly.don't get out from under the car yet,have an assistant turn the steering wheel to the left take a 3lb hammer and beat in the next till it fits.my now that was great. oh,if your welding skills excead those from the flowtech go find someone who has never seen a welder and hve them do the job ,afterall you want it to your proud of your perchase.

Summary:
to review these problems are not reserved for any 1 car maker,they screw them up on all models.or they send us this junk followed by a film crew to try to win 100,000 on one of those vidio shows.

Review 2 of 34

Price Paid:  $300.00 from www.summitracing.com

Year / Model Reviewed:
 442 Convertible

Strengths:
Fast shipping from Summit

Weaknesses:
The welding and assembly where the headers bolt to the heads is sinful. The center ports were welded in crooked and there were grinding gouges that will never allow a good seal. Shame on everyone in production and quality control must not exist. Anyone want pictures, just email me.

Summary:
Extremely disappointed !!

Review 3 of 34

Price Paid:  $450.00 from LORDCO

Year / Model Reviewed:
1999 99 Dakota R/T

Strengths:
Bolt holes lined up to the head, I got some new gaskets!

Weaknesses:
Leaks, terrible welds, collector pipe fitment way off, beautiful cermacoated job wasted.

Summary:
Cermacoated ones were on backorder so I got the black heat painted ones. Sent them out to get cermacoated for another $185. Awsome finish, better than factory. Only to find out after install is the factory welds at the collector on driver side leaks and a pinhole in the weld on the passenger side. The top loop hits the master cylinder and the A/C condensor on the other side. The alignment to the factory pipe was off but workable. The welds, well I've seen way better it must have been welded by a kid.

I should have spent the extra couple hundred for a quality product.

Test your headers for leaks first by doing a water test. If welds look like crap they are.

Review 5 of 34

Price Paid:  $285.00 from on line

Year / Model Reviewed:
 Ford 66 Fairlane 500 hardtop

Strengths:
Nice finish and header flange sealed up tight.

Weaknesses:
Could have had more bolt clearance since getting a wrench on some bolts is really tight. There is more then enough room for more shifter linkage clearance if the header tubes were over just a bit. Same for power steering hose clearance....there's more room.

Summary:
This was an easy install and both headers bolted up easy. (Part number 32100) I'm installing these on my 66 Fairlane with a 289 green dot column shift tranny. Had to put that power steering bracket on but had issues with a power steering hose clamp, had to remove for clearance and had to bend shifter linkage a bit to shift and had to also bend lower arm on gas pedal to clear header tube. Bent that about 1/2" over then it works great! With these minor issues fixed I see no problems.
