    Default headers

    What is the difference between jet boat and v-drive headers? Besides one is for a jet boat and the other is for a v-drive that should cover it

    If you put jet boat headers on a v drive they will point up in the air and imo look silly and if you put v drive headers on a jet they point down in the transom.. Hope this helps I think jets have a 5 or 4 degree built in to them

    Because of engine positioning (flywheel fwrd/aft) Alot of older headers are application specific and for example V-drive headers might be very close to the top of the transom on some applications etc

    They have a different bend to them. V-drive pipes will sit too low & hit the back of a jet boat's transom. Jet pipes will stick up in the air on a v-drive.

    Edit--Looks like Tom about covered it same time as me.
