Patriot Exhaust "tight tuck" headers are a perfect alternative for Vette Rods, engine swaps or just the Corvette enthusiast who wants to increase power and reduce front end weight by eliminating the factory ram horn exhaust manifolds. Tight Tuck headers hug the side of your small block, allowing for clearance between the frame rails without interfering with stock engine mounts.

Patriot headers are manufactured of 1 5/8 diameter 16-gauge tubing and then metallic ceramic coated for a lasting silver finish. Features a 2 1/2" collector and 3/8" thick flanges. Designed for 1956-1982 small block Corvettes with D-Port or "Oval Port" cylinders heads which includes the popular ZZ4 and ZZ383 crate engines. Patriot 8019 headers measure 4.5" wide and 10" tall. Complete with header gaskets and mounting bolts. Car set.

Note: The headers are not designed to be used with factory exhaust pipes. However, Zip has available 4-piece pipe sets to connect Patriot headers to stock or Magnaflow mufflers. See related part # EX-993 & EX-994 for pipe sets.

How did a big-rig headlight maker turn into a leader in the performance ignition industry? The credit goes to Tom Reh, the CFO of PerTronix in the early nineties. After selling the headlight part of their business, Tom and his team changed the name of the company to PerTronix and focused all their manufacturing efforts on the Ignitor and Flame-Thrower product lines. Today, their systems often look stock, but perform much better than OE ignition systems. Zip features a complete line of PerTronix Ignition products for C1-C3 Corvettes.
