Capri mk3 with sbc which headers

Post by Bod1986 » Sat Apr 10, 2021 10:44 pm

Good evening all. I'm currently doing a sbc conversion and wondering what headers/ exhaust manifolds people have used in there sbc conversions. I need 2.5" collectors. Thanks

Your into make it yourself territory now . Have you had the engine in the engine bay ? , also depends a bit on how much you can change stuff around to fit it in and still be legal . Pretty much anything to do with chassis, steering, suspension or brakes changed here in NZ requires an engineers inspection and certification .🙂

There looks to be plenty of options for headers out there so should be something to suit. Engine is in and there is room avalible, it's gone in with very minimal work so won't require any additional test etc.

Hi mate,

When Tickover did my conversion they used Hedman Hugger headers, left plenty of room in the engine bay.
