Sanderson BB1MV header for big block Chevy

Sanderson's  patented flange design requires no gasketsThe BB1MV header is designed to fit big block Chevrolet Mark V engines in street rods where tight fit and performance are a factor. Virtually eliminating ground clearance problems, the BB1MV hangs down less than 11" from the center of the exhaust ports on the cylinder heads. This header is 2" tighter to the block than any other blockhugger header!

The BB1MV will fit most chassis without a crossmember beneath the center of the engine block.  Available for the standard big block Chevy engines, Order #BB1, and also the Gen6 big block, order #BB1GEN6.

Comes with all hardware necessary for installation.

  1. Sanderson 5-yr WarrantyThe Patented Leak-Free Design that Sanderson Headers offer you is the only leak-free flange design on the market ... Do Not Attempt To Use Flange Gaskets! The raised flange on the Sanderson Headers will buckle the gasket during tightening and actually cause a leak!
  2. Sanderson Headers are NOT emissions legal on pollution-controlled motor vehicles. It is the purchaser's responsibility to verify local regulations for compliance.
  3. Wrapping your Sanderson Headers with ANY thermal tape voids your header warranty. The best thermal protection for your headers is our Aluminized Ceramic Coating that is available for every Sanderson Header.


Limited 5-Year Warranty (read more here)


When sitting in driver's seat and engine in front of you, the LEFT header would be the Driver's Side on LH drive vehicles; coincidently, means the RIGHT header is on the passenger side. See the detail image above left that describes engine sides.
