I'd like to know what some other guys running BBF's are using for primary tube size. I called Judy Stahl of Stahl headers for a weld up kit and she told me the ( ruined in wreck ) last headers I was running were too small for 514 cubic inches. I was running 2 1/8th primaries into 4 in. collectors. She says use at least 2 1/4 primaries with 4 to 4 1/2 collectors. Any opinions?
Thanks!

I have to agree, I run a 2 1/8" primary into a 4" collector with 4" exhaust system (Flowmasters). My heads have a SCJ exhaust port.


Forget to add that my engine is 466 cubic inches.

I wouldn't go any bigger than 2 1/4" unless you run it past 7,500.

Jerry, Could you email me with the contact information for Stahl headers? I am pretty sure that nobody makes a set of 2 1/4 tubes to put a BBF into a 68 fastback. I will probably have to do the work myself. What exactly is in their 'weld up kit'? Is the flanges and a bunch of bends?

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.

It all depends on the intake and exhaust port flow, and the maximum RPM. 2 1/4 would be the MAXIMUM I think.
