    and stronger. brazing is pretty, but it looks like he heats the entire flange and brazes like you'd solder a copper pipe. If he's old school, that would make sense because Mig didn't come into vogue until the 70s.... and then there were lots of brittle welds - thus tons of cracking.

    Thanks for the heads up. Bookmarked it after about 10 pages. Lots more to go.

    I think its because brazing is lower heat and less likely to warp the flange.

    There tons of room on the passnger side for large to jumbo sized stepped headers. Its the drivers side that gets interesting. The drivers side on my car took more than double the time to design and I only have 1 3/4".

    why does he braze the tubes to the flange?

    Well, those are actually 2" stepped to 2 1/8" so I was willing to spend the money cause I wanted to know how the hell they could get it all to fit. Other people were asking $2500 - $3000 for what I was after. I will be fabricating my own now that I will have better resources and a nice place to do it. FYI, the 67-69 Camaro & 68-72 Nova headers are the same except for one tube that gets rerouted. I have a smaller set that I will be changing that are 1 7/8".

    I talked to Stahl when I went looking for a bigger set of headers for my '65 Impala. My bank account couldnt handle it. I didnt have the tools or.the talent to fab up a set from scratch either. My solution was somewhat "unique".
