PostSubject: SAMS/Enem/Stahl header specs   Mon Aug 02, 2010 7:33 pm

Does anyone have, or know where I can get the length & diameter of the dual pipes(1 3/4?) otherwise known as "primary pipes" going to the collector & also, length & diameter of the collector on a set of the SAMS or Enem headers for a naturally aspirated B230?

I want to pattern my OEM header pipes & it's collector after the SAMS /Enem/ or maybe the Stahl N/A header, hopefully gaining a few HP.

I have found the primary tube, and collector diameters. I need the length of primary tubes and length of collector and the dimension of the "triangled" collector.
Anbody happen to have a SAM header?

BTW, the OEM cast iron maniflod pairs cyl. #s 1 & 4 together and cyl. #s 2 & 3 together.

Same with the SAM header Very Happy So the OEM ex. mani. & SAM are the same as far as cylinder pairing in the "4" part of 4-2-1.

SAM uses 1.70" primary tubes, and OEM ex. mani uses 1.60" "primary tubes" in the cast iron ex. mani design.

Secondly, the header pipe that bolts to OEM ex. mani is the "2" part of 4-2-1. SAM header is 2" pipes, where the OEM is 1 3/4" pipes .

Thirdly the collector is the main difference between OEM ex. mani & SAM header design.

So if I make the OEM exhaust manifold lentgh + the header pipe's 1 3/4" pipes equal the full length of the SAM header from cyl. head to where dual pipes meet the collector, & make the collector like the SAM collector, I'll have basically the same header, only with OEM parts+ a little modding. Very Happy cheers Koolspot

What do you think about that?????????????

I'm gonna try. Gotta see how much $ it'll cost to make the collecor that the SAM has.
