    Default Looks like I scored two Clifford Research 6-2 headers on eBay!

    After reading posts on this website, and consulting my How to Modify Your Nissan/Datsun SOHC Engine book, I got my hands on two Clifford Research 6-2 headers.

    The first set is NOS, with absolutely beautiful welds, a nice true thick mounting flange, and is ceramic coated inside and out.

    The second is used, sandblasted, and coated (not ceramic). There's one small hole I'll have to fix up. The welds aren't as nice, and look to be of the quality of the set I have now.

    I guess it's safe to say I'm a header nut. I plan to use the ceramic coated one, and got 2nd one just to have around.

    Congrats on that. I was looking on ebay for those, didn't find any and gave up. Guess persistance pays off. From my very limited knowledge (I read that book, and "How to hotrod and race your Datsun") I'm guessing the MSA headers might be good for racing and top HP, but not as good as Clifford for mid-range torque, especially important with my AT. Clifford has more stuff than a couple years ago after Jack died so possibly they'll bring them back if enough people show interest.
    Seen some great looking headers from OZ (on a post here) and Japan (in magazines) but doubt if they'd work with LHD.

    I had a Clifford 6-1 that I used on my 66 Mustang and it was a piece of artwork. Terrific sound and it felt like more ponys.
    Sad to hear Jack is gone, he was a interesting, dedicated car guy.

    Very nice! Z headers double nicely as artwork.

    I contacted them last month regarding their L-Engine headers. They thought they had a few left around, but sadly found they didn't. They said they had no plans to restart either. Nice find!
