  1. #46. Headers

    Converting to ceramic coated headers is a logistical PITA for the he most part. It also runs in to some serious money, especially if your having some one else doing the welding & install.

    But, I must say the acceleration performance is improved.
    even starting the engine is much easier.

    i purchased the mid length header from BPNW, for about $400.00.
    took them into a local shop ( that isn't a LBC specialist, but a good conscientious mechanic none-the-Less). ...

I've done the usual things like recore the radiator and replaced the thermostat. Recently I tried a couple of advanced measures. For one I bought one of Mark Macy's cooling fans to replace the modest original four-blade fan. Macy's has several more blades. Additionally I also replaced the water pump with a five-vane pump I bought ...
