Corvette Exhaust Manifolds

2 1/2″ Cast Iron Corvette Ram Horn Exhaust Manifolds

Unfortunately, Chevy no longer makes the popular 2 1/2 Corvette Ram Horn Exhaust Manifolds.  You may be able to find original Chevy Ram Horns on sources such as E – Bay.  We use an best “imported” copy of the 2 1/2″ Ram Horn available.

Mechanically, we have never had a problem with these “imported manifolds”.  They fit the heads just fine and durability has never been an issue.

In the air flow department, without any modifications, the “imported” Corvette exhaust manifolds suck pond water.  Yes, they must be modified for any type of performance application.

Our modifications start with CNC machining the porting from the stock size of 1.300″ x 1.300, which is smaller than most cylinder head exhaust port openings, to 1.430″ x 1.430″.  After the CNC work, we finish off the manifold with a fair amount of hand porting.  Our Modified Imported Ram Horns will perform exactly like the modified original Chevrolet Ram Horns.
