    Default TT Bassett headers

    Does any know if the through transom bassett headers (like the ones in the parts spam section) can be mounted under an engine cover?

    No they can't the weep holes in the headers would allow exhaust to escape into your engine cover and choke out your motor.

    didn't find the ad in the spam section but if they look like these they can't be covered.

    Their "Tri-Y" JACKETED header can be P/N 9009-1, but no pix of those found real quick this AM.

    $2700 a set.

    No Bassett does not recommend mounting them under an engine hatch because they still produce about 1500 degrees of heat.
