Headers by DC Sports

A good set of headers can work wonders for your engine. Improving your vehicle's performance overall often depends on three factors: adjusting your spark timing, getting more air into your cylinders, and getting more exhaust out. Headers are designed to get more exhaust out by replacing your stock exhaust manifold. Instead of forcing all of your cylinders to expel exhaust through the same pipe, headers split the load to free up power. For your V6 engine, consider DC Sports 3-Into-1 V6 headers.

Quality runs through and through this equipment. 3-Into-1 V6 headers feature precision bent mandrels and machine-ground flanges to ensure a leak-free seal for the flange mating surface. Every single set of DC Sports 3-Into-1 V6 headers is put through a rigorous testing procedure to ensure the best quality, for perfect performance and a perfect fit.

The design of 3-Into-1 V6 headers gives you a broad power range increase, with boosts of up to 15 horsepower or greater for most engines. Your exhaust has a shorter path to travel, and fewer cylinders fighting to expel exhaust through the same pipe means decreased backpressure for a smoother running engine, which frees up more power that can be sent to your wheels instead.

In addition to performance, DC Sports 3-Into-1 V6 headers look great under your hood. They are available in brushed or polished 304-stainless steel, as well as mild steel with ceramic coating that is temperature and corrosion resistant. Your 3-Into-1 V6 headers will last a long time without wear and tear, and will continue to put out great performance from your engine.
