Headers GLOWING Red HOT !!
Hey I just installed Kent cams Exhaust gear and it's set at "0" deg. and the header is glowing RED HOT, I was wondering if this is normal or do I have to play with the gear to get this symptom to go away ? I have 1 step colder plugs / livewire coil and spark plugs are gapped at .055
Is red hot headers related to timing ?
Your input would be appreciated !

take a pic. I wanna see.

Yeah - I wanna see this too. If your header is glowing "red hot," something is seriously ****** with your exhaust.

This happened on my old volvo, but that was the cat was all clogged up. If I recall you dont run a cat. So I dunno.

dude F1..!!!! sorry i have no idea what's up wit that car... looks cool though, i mean HOT...

vanace 10-12-2005 07:36 PM

it is probably normal. that used to happen to all the cars I have had with headers.. albeit V-8's and carborators. What brand header?

That's why I'm NOT removing my heat shield...[;)]

The headers on my Bronco get good and cherry red after a hard run.
I've never looked that closely at my SVTF though.

Is this the first time he's ever noticed it...after the cam gear install?
