    My car was in a fire and I have the 276 desktop hemi ceramic headers ,they were tarnished and smoke and water damaged what is the best way to clean them ,the engine was never started yet

    It really depends on the intensity of the fire and associated damage. If the headers were not directly affected by the heat, use the tips provided at the link below. However, if the heat was enough to permanently damage the coating, correcting the finish will require stripping and re-coating the headers.

    Hi there. Interested in a set of these headers. Happy to see any performance stuff for a desoto hemi. My question is how far the tubes project from the block, up closer to the exhaust ports. My hemi is in a little dodge truck and I have very limited space between the existing manifold and the steering shaft. Just want to make sure they will work before I purchase.

    The Hemi headers do extend beyond the width of the engine due to the port exit angle, and the tubes then follow the block line toward the oil pan. If the engine sits above and wider than the frame or has a unique steering setup I suggest creating a support ticket on our Helpdesk (link below) and attach images of the vehicle that we can review.


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.

Limited 5 Year General Warranty

Sanderson Street Rod Headers strives to supply our customers with the highest quality parts and service available in the street rod industry. In keeping with this, we warrant and will repair or replace, at our option after inspection in our facility, any of our products which are found by us to have failed due to defects in either material or workmanship.  This warranty is activated by the return of the Warranty Card enclosed with every pair of headers, and is effective for FIVE YEARS * from the date of purchase as indicated on the original invoice.

This Warranty does not cover products that fail due to improper motor tuning, alteration, disassembly, or damage caused by racing, misuse, neglect, abuse, improper installation and/or accident, or when used on applications for which they were not designed or approved. We are specifically not responsible for the costs of removal, installation, transportation, destruction of other components, inconvenience, loss of time, or other personal damages, or for any other associated costs including the application of aftermarket coatings applied by others. Sanderson Street Rod headers shall not be liable for any and all consequential damages occasioned by the breach of any written or implied warranty pertaining to this sale in excess of the purchase price of the product(s) as found on the original invoice.



* Extremely compact header designs which locate the collector in close proximity to the exhaust ports are very sensitive to engine tuning. Improper air/fuel mix or timing of ignition and/or valvetrain can cause early failure due to excessive heat. For this reason, part numbers CC2 and CC3 are offered with a two-year Warranty period only. All other Warranty conditions apply.
