Anyone running sanderson headers on there small block ?
I am running dd8s. Mine were tweaked to work with column shifting on my 66 barracuda These headers have been on two motors, the 273 and now the 408. I am happy with the construction and notice some gains from the stock manifolds on the smaller motor. In my case there might not be other options Either way I am happy
@cudajames can you post up some pics of those DD8's on a 66? Interested to see fitment as you don't hear of these too often on narrow A's.
The first picture is from the 273 with power steering, on the new motor I changed to manual for clearance, Which helps I would love to find a header with larger primary tubes (the reasoning behind the change to manual steering)
Thanks for the pics. Looks like they'd fit a 67 and up just fine.
heck yeah, I never thought those would fit. I always thought Sanderson were block hugger type. That driver side design is what I made out of a Hooker race header, huge tubes, ugly welds! Looks like thy changed them
Cuda James Do you have DD-8s, or DD-9s,,,? I thought you had DD-9s. Dave
I have the d9
Tomtow Welcome to the board.. You have Sanderson DD-9,??. what vehicle do you have,??. Dave
There are in a 1966 dart gtx convertible with a 318 with power steering.
There are dd9 also , Any hell will ever appreciate. The third tube on driver side hits the top conor of ps box. I have the mount unbolted from frame to move around and can’t get to clear box to get mount back down on frame .
Well I splurged today, and ordered a set of DD9s thru Summit. Mid July Shipping date. Then the fun will begin. Dave
Well Summit Racing sent me an update on my Sanderson DD9 headers. They are shipping from Sanderson now, the 24th of Aug. I figure a week to get here to Wisconsin, Yippee Kiyay. Dave
At long last here are my new Sanderson headers, # DD9. They arived thusday, a little late. They had my address as in Fargo ND, LOL. Im in Wisconsin, but UPS got them here. Going to be a while before install, as I am still working on the 360. Dave
For the money they want their website and information blows. I don't even see DD9??? listed on their website.
Having been down the road of Shorty headers I personally don't see the need in going from a Manifold to these. Plenty of other reasons to use them (looks, cleanliness, etc.) but for a purpose of making power the increase doesn't justify the cost IMO. The set of Sanderson's I had on a car in a different once upon a time did fit well and served a purpose however looking back at it they weren't worth the money. My opinion won't fit everyone's agenda and that's OK however don't expect them to perform anything like a full length header.... But as said they fit and finish were nice. But this was GM and of course they sold more which meant they could tweak the tooling..... JW
Years ago, a friend of mine put a big block in a 1958 Chevy. The exhaust manifolds wouldn't fit, so he went with Sanderson engine swap headers. They looked like they were made well but their tubes were small-1 1/2". I've always remembered that and usually when I see Sandersons, their tubes are almost always small. My 2 cents worth.
67dart273 You have to order them thru Summit. If you try to on Sanderson sight, and if you call them, they say discontinued. I know that they probably don't flow to lots of you guys likings, but they are better than the 273 manifolds. At my age, pushing 80 yrs old, I dont care any more. I'll be happy to finish this "my last Project". I don't race anymore, so it dosnt matter. It will still be a nice little Early A Bodie with no cut up inner fender wells. Its just about time to start selling off some of my "JUNK". Dave
