Header Damage from the BBF Bash

Headers aren't that bad. A few dings but nothing to sweat about. Kids, don't try this at home :lol:

Might want to put a little more travel (bump stop) restriction in them springs. Going UP aint so bad, its that damn "down" travel that kills the stuff.

Gotta go remember to shove a couple of spring rubbers in the drag springs. Mine are pretty damn soft on the compression....

A race car always has dents & scratches.. I figured it would look worse from seeing your wheel stands.

The number one factor that saved my headers is that the engine is sitting in the stock location plus the D&D headers tuck up under the floor board and are just a fraction of an inch from touching the floor boards.

Luck and my stock FAT K-member saved my headers AND my oil pan

I agree with the above posts in that I thought the headers would look A LOT worse than they do.. Right now I would say no harm done...

I agree Dave and Phil, I would have thought the header damage would have been MUCH worse.

You guys should have seen the headers on the Black car I used to have. Previous owner flatenned the headers street racing by bottoming out on th street and NOT from any wheels up launches.

I found the pictures and uploaded them. Look how close these Hooker headers are to the ground and they were beat all to hell!
