NOTICE

Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to restock items reliably. Many sought after parts are backordered without ETA info -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. We are doing what we can to adapt and recover from the changes to our industry, but currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Even if we can't reply to your email promptly, please trust that we ARE working on getting delayed items back into stock for you, and we will contact you when we have any updated news. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.


When you place an online order request, you can opt to have in-stock items processed for shipment in advance of any backordered items. For out of stock items, you are NOT CHARGED, you are automatically added to the reservation waitlist, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.

Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Requested items could be delayed by supplier-level backorder, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information. We work diligently to source and fulfill your request for items as best we can.

Cross-section photo shows the finned core of an OEM HD heater box for ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. The fins on the available AFTERMARKET heater boxes are not as "pretty" or extensive, but they still do the job you need to provide extra heat on cold days!


 
Heat Exchanger (Heater Box), Heavy Duty AFTERMARKET, Right, 1300-1600cc Type 1 and 2, 043-255-108H are the highest quality heater boxes available currently. Finned on the inside, NOT "Racing Heater Boxes" which are just a tube with a skin on it. You'll get the most heat possible with these for those cold days. Beware that many shops sell "Light Weight" or "Racing" Heater Boxes, luring you in by their low price. They are low priced because they have NO fins on the inside, just a shell and a J-tube so they do not produce as much heat.

Photo shows the finned core of an OEM HD heater box for ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. Lightweight heater boxes have no fins AT ALL around a round pipe. The fins on the available AFTERMARKET heater boxes are not as "pretty" and do not give as much additional surface area as OEM, but additional heat is gained by the fact that the heater box core is larger in cross section than the round tube of a non-finned unit. This slows the flow of hot exhaust, and increases the time to transfer the heat to the finned heat sink!

Tube ID is 1.215".

We recommend "Spiral Ducted" heater boxes for locations that don't get below 20F, and the "Heavy Duty" heater boxes for locations that get colder than that.
