DEI Header Wrap How-To at SEMA 2014 V8TV Video

The side benefit is that properly wrapped headers can help keep under hood temperatures down as well. The challenge is to use the proper material and wrap the headers so that they ar...

In this video series, we're upgrading a 1969 Camaro SS 396 for better performance using an Edelbrock Top End Kit consisting of E-Street Heads, a RPM intake manifold, a mild street camshaft, and the required hardware and gaskets to put it all together. We're adding a Holley Street Avenger Aluminum 670 carburetor for fuel, and an MSD Digital E-Curve distributor for spark. The Camaro will breathe better with a dual MagnaFlow stainless exhaust system, and it will run smoothly on Royal Purple Break-In Oil and Max Gear transmission oil. We're also adding a Centerforce clutch for more grab. Under the car, we're detailing the subframe and suspension with Eastwood Underhood Black paint, and installing Global West Del-A-Lum bushings up front. A Baer Track disc brake kit is going on for better stopping power, and a Chassis Engineering front sway bar will help this car corer better.

 

Muscle cars need free-flowing exhaust to make power, but that does not mean the have to be obnoxiously loud. However, we all like that sweet rumble from a healthy engine, but not droning in the cabin. What to do? Check out this install video of a MagnaFlow stainless exhaust system with its flow-through mufflers and True-X crossover tubes. Not only does it look slick, but it installs easy, does not rob power, and sounds great at all the right times.

 

The next step was to install a high pressure EFI fuel system in our '55 Thunderbird. For the soft lines, we used all TechAFX hoses and fittings. Trevor routed the rest of stainless steel hard lines to fit tight against the frame, away from moving suspension parts or exhaust. For a fuel pump we used an in-tank sump pump kit from Tanks Inc. Finally, We ordered a MagnaFlow custom exhaust kit for this car and nick ran the pipes through the X frame and out the of back.

 

Once we got the Firebird disassembled, we decided it would be best to repaint the firewall, clean up the underside, and put some work into the subframe. Once we had all those areas to the same level as the rest of the car, we put in the 468 motor and Tremec transmission. We also installed a Hydratech Hydroboost system with a CPP master cylinder for improved brakes. Then we tied it all together with an oval tube exhaust system, E-85 friendly fuel lines and tank, and some Royal Purple break in oil for the first start.

 

We stopped at MagnaFlow to check out a sweet '67 Nova built by Greening Auto Company on display at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. MagnaFlow also released some new exhaust parts, including custom built headers! We also got to spend a few minutes with Miss MagnaFlow, Amanda Landry!
