Spent my Saturday installing a new set of TTI's on my Buddies '72 340 'Cuda. I had read on the board how nice TTI's were, but until you actually get yoru hands on a set, your really can't appreciate jsut how SWEET they are...... Nicest headers by far I have ever installed. Make my $830 Hooker Super Comps look like crap.... The fit/finish of the TTI's is unbelieveable.
Basic quick rundown of the car.... 340, 10.46:1, TRW forged pistons, Moly rings, .580" solid, 265@ .050", Ported Edelbrock heads, Weiand Stealth, 650 Race Demon, 3800 Stall 9" converter, TCI 727, 4.30 Richmonds.... Soon to be 416", 13:1, M1 Single plane, 950 HP, .630" solid...
The pics of these headers on the TTI website were what sold him on them.... He had never even heard of TTI before I mentioned them.... IF anyone out there is even THINKING about getting a set of TTI's, I definitely give them a BIG thumbs up, and he is VERY pleased. They did their homework and hit a home run in my book...
1 5/8" Step into 1 3/4" with 3" Collectors....
Insatlled my TTI headers in 73 Satellite with 360 Magnum engine last week. Basicly I agree - super nice parts. Nevertheless, I had a cleareance problem on the passanger side with the Cyl, #8 tube. It did not clear the torsion bar. Beside that: big thumps up...
The TTI's for standard heads are stepped, 1-5/8 to 1-3/4". The new TTI's for W-2's are 1-7/8" no step. They are made for the wide bolt pattern. The W-2 headers will not fit the standard bolt pattern on some of the older W-2's like mine. The new W-2's have a dual bolt pattern. If you want them to fit the standard pattern, you'll have to use sub flanges from Hooker or Hedman. The standard head TTI's are around $500, and the W-2 headers are close to $675. John
