Small body cars should be over half of the market.

I just need to figure out if the ballpark price for 1.75" tube/4spd Javelin headers is the ballpark I'm in LOL


Guys, I'll gladly quote you all via email, nick@americanracinheaders.com Please feel free to reach me there.

It's important that everyone understands what we're offering here is so far removed from what you're used to in terms of material quality and design. These headers are extremely labor intensive mainly due to the dog leg style port and what it takes to shape the port and create a smooth transition while using a 3/8" thick flange. As racers ourselves we understand exactly how not to hurt performance by screwing up the inlet of our headers. The AMC port design requires much more attention, (an understatement to say the least).

The second factor are the flanges. They require an additional process of machining angles across the tie bar to allow for easy spark plug socket clearance. Again due to the 3/8" thick flange but it's worth it guys. Going 3/8" eliminates the possibility of warping.

Third, the 304 S/S material used will never rust or corrode. There's no need for ceramic coating. All ARH material is 100% USA made.

Fourth, our systems come with a lifetime guarantee to the original buyer. They are built to buy, install and enjoy indefinitely.

Guys these factors drive the cost but if you do a little research about ARH, you'll see we have an excellent reputation built upon our relentless pursuit to always raise the bar and go places and do things others won't. Since their inception, ARH is the exclusive supplier of headers for all Mopar'sV8/V10 Drag Pack's, GM's COPO's and Ford's Cobra Jet cars. All built to compete with each other. I recommend looking into these cars if you aren't already familiar.

Lastly I'd like to say why we decided to offer an AMC line in the first place. I've personally been a huge Oldsmobile fan and racer for well over 30 years. I know exactly what it's like to not have options for headers or that the options available weren't worth the material they were made from. I remedied that for Olds enthusiasts long ago and for quite a while I've wanted to take care of the AMC crowd. We're half way there with large body headers. In time, I assure you, we will get the small body cars done. I'm looking forward to that.

Nick

Boris, without question we will get the small body cars done. We just need to see how things work out with these large body headers. The response has been great so far with many interested. Once these headers are off and running we will actively search for a small body car locally (we're in NY on Long Island) to bring in for the prototype. Stay tuned.

Sounds great let us know more and pricing.


Dbomb, bottoming out our headers will require destroying the entire undercarriage of your car. Think Dukes of Hazzard 20ft cliff jump. It's not going to happen. We've got you covered.

Great to hear that a new quality product is being offered for AMC. I hope the big car headers sell good. I have a small car (American) and agree that there might be just as many sales (if not more) for small bodies. Thanks   -Greg

I also love seeing a new product out there for our AMC cars, but I do have a couple of questions.

I wonder why we can't have a header that works for both big and small cars as it would seem that a well designed header for the small cars would also fit into the larger engine bay. Maybe a little bit of additional design work, but you double your sales potential without having to carry two product lines.

Also, I know it's a tiny blip on the sales radar, but I can already see that these wont fit our Aussie right hand drive cars.

I would definitely be interested in a set for small body.  May I suggest that you design a set that will clear the Control Freak front suspension on the small body.  There are currently no small body  headers on the market that will clear the Control Freak K member.
