exhaust manifolds


Anybody have experience with the repo 2.5" small block ram horn manifolds.I see several versions are around from different suppliers.There is a big price difference between the ones Ecklers sell and the ones with Summit or Jegs.Comments good and bad welcomed  K.N.

I personally would guess that Ecklers were re-pros as well       I can get them at Car Quest for 93.75 each (DORMAN 674-502)    

Internet traffic suggest they are pretty good quality      best to run 2.5 pipes with them

Make sure they have the alternator mount for your year.

I bet they are all made in the same place, including Ecklers, who are just more expensive for just about everything.

The repros all come with that same mount on the front and there is no left or right side. You have to grind off that big mount for the side you don't mount the alternator on. They are said to be a very good quality and the price from Car Quest is real good.

 

There is a 64 & later left side with the mounting bolts on the end instead of the side, they are for sale on vette sites for about US$235.

Search on evilBay for "rams horn exhaust manifold" and you will find anything you want - proper right hand side w/o alternator bracket, and left hand side with either side or end mounting bolts, e.g.:

LH end mount: http://www.ebay.com/itm/EXHAUST-MANIFOLD-RAMS-HORN-64-65-CORVETTE-3846563-WITH-ALT-AIR-P-S-BRACKET-/322356360288

LH side mount: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevy-Small-Block-RAM-HORN-EXHAUST-MANIFOLD-LH-Side-3749965-283-327-Corvette-/152347869879

RH no mount: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevy-Small-Block-RAM-HORN-EXHAUST-MANIFOLD-RH-Side-3747038-283-327-Corvette-/152347874103

Used the 2.5 rams horn from Speedway fit real nice . Got the head pipes from Show cars had modify to fit. Really tight on starter side, had to use a mini starter. Even with the extra work I like them. You will have to use the heat riser or get the spacer. Laurier
