Brief Description:
Our headers are named "Smooth Flow" because they have no sharp bends. They feature 13/4-inch or 17/8-inch primaries, 3/8-inch CNC-cut flanges, and unique, low-restriction, 3-inch, one-piece extruded collectors that are constructed by hand to the highest standards. They're finished off-inside and out-with sterling-silver ceramic coat, which drops header surface temperatures by 50 percent, promotes cooler intake air/fuel charges, and reduces damaging heat radiation in the engine compartment.

Trademark features:
Our headers feature larger-bend radiuses (producing better flow than other headers), extended one-piece collectors (promoting scavenging), ceramic coating, and no loss of ground clearance. They're 100 percent made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty. Dyno gains of more than 30 hp have been reported!

Quote from company:
"Melrose headers offer the most 'well-rounded' headers on the market-safer than stainless, excellent fit and performance, and priced affordably!"
