321 Stainless Steel Header for Vanagon with Subaru 2.2L 1996 and later

321 Stainless Steel Header for Vanagon with Subaru 2.2L 1996 and later

In stock

New and improved thicker 321 stainless material!

New for May 2014, this header now has 2mm thick pipes and 3mm thick collectors of 321 stainless steel. The preferred material for high temp applications, 321 stainless steel offers extreme resistance to high temperatures. Used extensively for turbo and aircraft applications, 321 stainless steel withstands temperatures in excess of 1650 degrees without losing its structural integrity. Flanges are 12mm 304 stainless steel.

This stainless header is similar to our 2.5L design, but built to fit the single port exhaust of the 1996 and later 2.2L engines.

Built of all stainless steel tubing, fits 2WD or Syncro with skid plate. Bolts up to stock 1986 and later Vanagon collector to cat pipe using the stock metal ring. 1985 and earlier Vanagons will need the later J pipe. Positions stock or aftermarket muffler just inside of rear valance. (The correct spot to attach muffler to Small Car mount)

The header was designed to be as compact as possible for strength and has as few welds as possible to eliminate breakage. With this header and a stock 86-style pipe, cat and muffler, the underside of the conversion looks stock enough that VERY few would recognize it isn't a wasserboxer.
Two 44011-AC000 gaskets are recommended.
