    Header Repair/Refurb 2010 Chevy Camaro with a Big Block Part 1

    I got a set of headers in for repair and shot a video of how I tackle this kind of work.

    Nice bit of welding. Kinda funny though... most headers that have been "dimpled" like that are because they had to clear some component and they have very little effect on HP. On my BBC '69 Camaro, I have Hooker Competition headers and yup... slight dimple on the driver's side to clear the corner of the power steering box. After seeing the Engine Masters YouTube "Crushed Header" dyno video ... I just ignore the fact that they have to be dimpled to fit.

    I haven't welded in decades but I just picked up a HH140 to play with. Probably not where I'll start, but I have some clean exhaust pipe and maybe once I get a feel for the machine I'll play with some pipe and see if I can learn to do some decent stick and fill stuff without blowing holes LOL.

    Project I _might_ try someday would be to mini-tub the car, would love to see some good videos on mini-tubbing that actually show some welding steps, not just before and after.
