Dakota Tri-Y Under Chassis B/RB Headers

Designed specifically for our Dakota B/RB swap kits, these headers develop gobs of low end torque and mid-range power!

Our new under-chassis, Tri-Y header system gives you high-flow header performance with a custom fit that means you don't have to sacrifice your power steering. Retain exhaust studs in the heads — no more breaking into water jackets! Plus, unlike most headers, it doesn't capture the starter, has excellent spark plug clearance, and is easily installed from the top down. Works with manual or power steering and automatic transmission.
(see installation instructions and tech tips)

• Tri-y step up design
• 1 3/4” primary - 2” secondary - 2 1/2” collector.
• 14 gauge steel tubing
• 3/8” flanges at the head
• Ball and socket joint at the collector
• High quality welds
• Mandrel bent for smooth flow
• Retain the exhaust studs in the heads
(no more cooling leaks)
• Does not capture the starter

Mini Starter

This is the starter we recommend for use with all of our big block and small block header applications. It's not the only starter that will work, but it's the one most commonly available new - from us or your Dodge dealer. In fact, it's the starter we use to test fit all of our headers. See additional information and installation photos here.

*NOTE: We carry limited stock on this item. On occasion shipment of Mini Starter might be delayed due to re-stocking time.

CHROMEX (CERAMIC) PLATING is our best performance coating. Its thermal barrier characteristics provide a dramatic reduction in radiated heat. This means reduced under-hood temperatures, accelerated exhaust gas velocity and a longer life expectancy for the entire exhaust system, not to mention chemical and corrosion resistance.

SATIN BLACK (CERAMIC) PLATING* is our stealthy, semi-flat black alternative to the Chromex performance
coating. It shares the same
thermal barrier, heat
reduction, accelerated
exhaust, and corrosion
resistance characteristics
as the Chromex ceramic
coating.

*Special order, call for availability.

CHROME NICKEL PLATING is a good coating at a reasonable price. It resists corrosion and protects against rust. It has a bright shine, but it does change color with heat.

BARE METAL (uncoated) headers are our least expensive exhaust solution, but they will rust unless painted or plated.

Our ceramic plating is done at Performance Coatings in Auburn, WA. Please visit their website for more information about ceramic plating.
