3SX Stainless Steel NA Long Tube Headers
91-99 3000GT DOHC & 91-96 Stealth DOHC
3SX has design the once-and-for-all ultimate long tube headers for the DOHC 24-valve Non-Turbo 3000GT and Stealth!!!! We did it the right way and started with a WHOLE CAR!
THESE are what you have been needing for your non-turbo 3000GT/Stealth! 3SX developed custom LONG TUBE HEADERS for the non-turbo 3000GT and Stealth! Featuring 23" individual runners for each cylinder, these are designed to strengthen the car in the mid range and top-end. And they DO! The car pulls stronger and longer when pushed hard. We also included a flex-section to maintain flexibility once installed and mated to the rest of the exhaust system.
DYNO PROVEN POWER! We went above and beyond any other supplier in the 3S market and dyno tested these headers to PROVE you are gaining 10 HP at the wheels over 6000 rpm! Check out our complete 3SX NA Exhaust Dyno Testing page for more details.
The system was designed to meet our specifications and have proper clearances and the best fitment of ANY non-turbo exhaust component on the market! A mockup was designed and tacked into place to confirm fitment and clearances, then the final product was cut and mandrel bent by computer-controlled equipment. Elaborate jigs were then made to ensure that EVERY set of welded-by-American-hands 3SX Long Tube Headers are exactly the same and meet both 3SX's and Kooks exacting standards!
Our new NA Long Tube Headers are made with US T304 Stainless Steel.
2" bank collectors
2.5" outlet pipe/flange
Factory restrictive 2" pipe
Slip-fit with clamp junction between the front and rear banks.
REAR: You will need to remove driver half-shaft and rear engine bracket - the piece between the mount and the block. The rear bracket should go back in WITH rear header piece.
FRONT: You will need to remove the front engine bracket from the block (the bracket between the mount and block), separate the alternator bracket from engine (remove belt) to get the old manifold out and the new header in, and bend oil dip stick over to driver side a little to clear the pipes.
GENERAL: We recommend getting the manifold nuts on first, loosely holding the front and rear banks to the heads, but leave them a couple threads loose to allow a little play in the pipes. Then slip the front and rear banks together. Then tighten the manifolds to the heads, then final tighten the clamp where the front and rear banks meet. This will allow everything to get the best seal and simplify aligning the pipes.
As always, we recommend NEW motor mounts to go with your new headers. Old worn motor mounts will cause the flex-section to prematurely fail and lead to exhaust leaks. We offer the 3SX Custom Polyurethane Motor Mounts and the 3SX Custom OEM-Replacement Rubber Motor Mounts.
FED vs CALI Spec: The headers are set up for direct use on the FED-spec cars (91-93, some 94-95) as the O2 bung is located at the back where the FED-spec single-sensor cars have the O2 Sensor. For installation on a CALI-spec car, you will need to have bungs welded onto the pipes and probably extend the wiring for the sensors to reach further down the exhaust depending on where you choose to install them. Obviously, the header kit installed on a CALI-spec car will eliminate the two pre-cats as well, so it could possibly trigger the check engine light. The O2 Sensor Spacers should remedy that situation.
NOTE: This modification may not pass local emissions or inspection laws - check your local ordinances.
NOTE: This is a LONG tube header kit - it replaces the manifolds AND downpipe, going between the heads and cat/racepipe.
