    Default header hole

    got a small hole(1/16'') but the rear flange.what i think might be a problem is,there ceramic coated.also there only 2 yrs.old. my thoughts are leaning to a small amount of JB WELD,vs. a spot weld that would destroy the ceramic.any thoughts?

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    you sure the ceramic didn't just pinhole? is there water or exhaust coming out?

    that's weird, those headers are too new to be corroding from the inside, but that lake you frequent is sallllttttyyyyy. last time we were all together on circle beach, all my pump hardware looked like it'd been acid washed from the texoma water. my tx19's trailer was ate up bad from that lake too.

    take a picture and email it to me if ya can. its normal for some ceramic to come loose near the flange or the weep holes.

    I plugged a small hole in my headers with a aluminum rivet. It's had a couple of hours on it with no problems so far.

    Default If there bassetts

    Hey guys, I know this is my first time posting but I think the hole your referring to is a water drain hole. If there bassett water inj. headers, there should be one for every pipe if Im not mistaken.

    Not to jump on you on your first post, but it is next to the flange not on the bottom of the header!! good thought though!!!!
    Sounds to me that when welded from the factory there might have been a spot that was thin from the weld and from the heat of the motor and that spot being pretty dam hot ,just my guess but I think thats what it is, it blow that little peace out!

    prob right. i built his bbf a couple yrs ago and we bolted new injected ceramic coated rewarder headers to it when we dropped the motor in. lake texoma is really acidic/salty too, which ain't good on headers
