American Racing Headers (ARH)
(631) 608-1986


Brief description:
ARH stormed into the header manufacturing world with our C5 and C6 lines. Attention to detail, quality materials, and some innovative thinking helped us get to the forefront within a year's time. Some of the most powerful naturally aspirated and boosted Corvettes breathe through American Racing Headers and set records worldwide. What sets ARH apart is that our Corvette lines cater to a wider range of applications, with various options in primary size (13/4-, 17/8-, and 2-inch), merge-collector size, and midsection (3 or 3x21/2-inch). This allows you to fine tune the header system to better suit your needs. A trademark with ARH is that we're not a "one size fits all" company.

Trademark Features:
To maintain a smooth transition from the cylinder head to the header and provide a leak-free seal, all ARH systems come with 3/8-inch-thick flanges with TIG-welded and hand-ported inlets. Merge collectors have always been standard on everything we build. Our Corvette systems place the X-style crossover pipe directly in line with our collectors (ahead of the cats) to improve low and midrange torque, without compromising top-end power. Our 200-cell metallic-substrate cats are the most durable available anywhere.

"We're quite proud that our systems are 100 percent U.S. made. We will never compromise quality for profit, and we will back our products with the finest customer service."

Brief description:
West Coast Corvette (WCC) has joined forces with Bassani Manufacturing to bring you the all-new Dominator GT Performance Series exhaust headers systems for all C5, C6, Z06, and ZR1 Corvettes. If you're looking for superior performance, killer sound, and stunning good looks, your search is over. With a "performance first" motto, Bassani spends countless hours on research and development to squeeze out the most horsepower possible, while maintaining a smooth, resonance-free sound.

Trademark Features:
All Dominator GT headers are constructed of 100 percent stainless-steel, mandrel-bent tubing, are made in the USA, and come with a limited lifetime warranty. The unique design produces the widest torque band of any available header. The 17/8-inch primaries have proven in testing to be the minimum-needed diameter to maximize the potential of the Corvette's incredible LS-series engines.

Quote from company:
"Bassani has been recognized as a leader in specialized exhaust components for more than 40 years, and when you add in West Coast Corvettes' 24 years, there is no question that together we can bring you the ultimate header systems."
