    Default 2.3 headers?

    Can the collective wisdom direct me to a source for headers for this motor? The exhaust exits on the passengers side. Hopefully there's a source for these. The vehicle is a 1986>87 Sabre 7 built on the west coast and is a pretty good replica. All help is appreciated.

    You might try Tom Carlin (tbox56). Tom is the Birkin distributor. He might have a set for a Birkin that could fit.

    In UK, Caterham and Simpson as mentioned above. Also in UK:
    Powerspeed - http://www.fastroadconversions.co.uk...owerspeed.html
    Cheesman - https://www.cheesmanproducts.co.uk/exhaust-systems/
    GoodFabs - https://www.goodfabs.com/

    These are all companies that have made exhaust systems for Caterham 7s to some extent previously.

    Nick,

    I have an unused 2.3 header, but you would need to fabricate the rest of the exhaust system. I bought it for a front wheel driver project and it never happened. I'm attaching a couple pictures so you can have a look.

    I also have a dual side draft intake manifold for the 2.3, but I'm guessing you already have what you need for that.

    If it is from the 1980s, it isn't a Duratec. I would assume a SOHC Pinto type engine?

    Alfonse is right. This header is for a Duratec. It won't fit the 2.3 Lima motor (if that's what you have). If you happen to have the Duratec motor, you're golden. If you decide you want the header, it's $175 plus shipping from 98296.

    If you do have the Lima 2.3, look around on some of the Merkur or Pinto/Bobcat forums or http://www.esslingeracing.com/.
