Sanderson CC1-5/8 Small Block Chevy Blockhugger Header Set


 Product Description

The CC1-5/8" header is designed to fit 1927 and up automobiles with small block Chevrolet engines.

One of our most popular small block Chevy headers. Features a 1-5/8" primary tube diameter and a 3" collector for all but the most radical performance engines.

This header will fit any rack and pinion set-up. Also fits Vega steering and any Mustang-style mounted steering that is mounted with 2" clearance from the steering gear to the center ports on the driver's side. The header will clear any motor mounts, tie rods, or steering rods. Any starter and transmission combination will clear this header except cast iron Powerglides. We also offer a headpipe which simplifies installation in 1928-1934 cars. This is the most compact true performance header offered today. Comes with all hardware necessary for installation.

  • Our Aluminized Ceramic Coating is available and RECOMMENDED on all Sanderson Headers. We apply a multi-layer inside and outside silver ceramic coating in-house to meet our high standards of quality, and polish the coated header to a high luster. This coating provides aerospace and military technology to your vehicle to control the heat in your engine bay, improve cylinder scavenging of exhaust gases, and increase the longevity of your header investment.

    You can select Thermal Ceramic Coating below, and the header price and part number will be automatically updated.

  • Copper Collector Gaskets are recommended for all Sanderson headers 
  • Sanderson Headers do not include collector bolts due to our customers' wide range of preference. 


  1. This header offers 1-5/8" primary tubes, which is good for about 375HP on a casually used 350-400 cubic inch or smaller engine application. For larger or higher horsepower applications we offer other versions of this header with 1-3/4" and 1-7/8" primary tube sizes, and for mild applications we offer a 1½" primary tube header.
  2. Will fit Mustang and Vega style steering as long as there is 2" of clearance between the center exhaust ports and the steering gear.
  3. The Patented Leak-Free Design that Sanderson Headers offer you is the only leak-free flange design on the market ... Do Not Attempt To Use Flange Gaskets! The raised flange on the Sanderson Headers will buckle the gasket during tightening and actually cause a leak!
  4. Sanderson Headers are NOT emissions legal on pollution-controlled motor vehicles. It is the purchaser's responsibility to verify local regulations for compliance.
  5. Wrapping your Sanderson Headers with ANY thermal tape voids your header warranty. The best thermal protection for your headers is our Aluminized Ceramic Coating that is available for every Sanderson Header.
