RAM’S HORNS YET AGAIN
Marlan, I just skimmed through the Feb. 2018 Pit Stop, “Ram’s Horn Revisited.” I’d like to let you and the readers know that McJacks makes a tubular “Ram’s horn” replacement header for Corvettes that bolts right up to existing downpipes. Well made, ceramic-coated, and copper-plated internally, but kinda pricey. I’ve run them on my 1979 Corvette 350 for six years. Gary Kowalski
Thanks, Gary. For readers who missed the Feb. 2018 issue, I mentioned some 1979–1982 factory-built Corvettes came with smoothly curved, tubular-steel, GM factory ram’s horn exhaust manifolds. Previously, GM ram’s horns were all heavy iron castings. GM has long since discontinued the tubular steel ram’s horns, but you’ve found what looks to be a great aftermarket alternative.
