AA Performance Merged Sidewinder Header and Muffler, 1 1/2 or 1 5/8" Primary Tubing, for Beetles and Ghias with Upright Type 1 Engines
AA Performance Merged Sidewinder Header and Muffler, 1 1/2 or 1 5/8" Primary Tubing, for Beetles and Ghias with Upright Type 1 Engines


 
AA Performance Merged Sidewinder Header and Muffler, 1 1/2 or 1 5/8" Primary Tubing, for Beetles and Ghias with Upright Type 1 Engines is an incredible value for those that don't have the money for a hand made A-1 Exhaust! Not as many options as the A-1 version, but look at the value!

Remember that Exhaust Tubing is measured on the OUTSIDE (Not Inside), stock is 1 1/4". A decent guideline is to run 1 3/8" for up to 90hp, 1 1/2" from 90-140hp, and 1 5/8" from 140-200hp. The Cylinder 1 and 3 J-pipes are INCLUDED with this header.

We do NOT offer this system ceramic coated, only RAW or Stainless Steel. PLEASE DO NOT ASK! If you want it ceramic coated, buy the raw version and get it coated locally (Locally to you).

THIS SYSTEM DOES NOT FIT TYPE 2s (BUSSES)!!!!

Base Price $289.95

5 of 5 69 Ghia February 8, 2016
Reviewer: Dan Brown from Oregon City, OR United States  
Nice exhaust for half the money. I purchased this system since the A-1 product was not going to be available in stainless for months. I run a 78 X 90.5 motor with deep sump. The car is dropped in the rear with rear disc brakes w/ emerg brake. The exhaust is far superior in material amd construction to 90% of the exhausts I've bought trough the years. It  fit perfect I did not have to alter any part of tmy Ghia or the  exhaust system

4 of 5 Looks and sounds great August 31, 2015
Reviewer: Keith Duckett from Kailua, HI United States  
This exhaust looks and sounds great but was a pain to install. It is a very tight fit and i had to clearance my lower sled tins as they fit more inboard than normal.  Also I would recommend some red lock tight for the silencer mount nuts as mine vibrated off fairly quickly. Overall nice exhaust for the money.

5 of 5 Awesome part, amazing value April 29, 2014
Reviewer: Brian Errea from Rapid City, SD United States  
This header is outstanding.  It fits perfect, great welds, super thick flanges, and all the hardware is included.  
A GOOD merged header and hideout muffler will cost you about the same as this, but this one has way more ground clearance.
