Product questions

    The upper header in your picture which I think is the passenger side header looks like the exit direction is towards the front. What is the reason for that when you would think it should really be aimed to the back ? This will make for a more difficult installation of the exhaust.I'm thinking it will be aiming towards the motor mount.Will the drivers side header give enough clearance for the knock sensor and it's connector without melting it? My application is a 35 ford coupe with a 4.3 litre vortec.

    The image is correct. The header is correct. Does this help in understanding why? :::

    Will these headers fit on a 4.3 litre V6 in a 35 ford coupe stock chassis with x member and Mii front suspension.Will they allow the exhaust to continue to the back through the holes in the X member?

    Oct 17, 2016, 18:22

    Yes, the CV95 fits that chassis, and you should not have any problems routing the exhaust.

    How hard is it to keep plug wires routed around the block hugger 4.3l headers to prevent heat damage?

    Jun 26, 2016, 14:05

    Not any harder than on any header set for any engine. General Tips: Ensure that the headers are ceramic coated because it reduces the heat exiting the header; Use the proper boot angle on the spark plugs; And in the most extreme applications either a plug wire set that features ceramic boots or heat wrap "ONLY on the plug wires/boots" may be required.


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.

  1. The 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.
