    HUH!? Where did that come from? Not. Rick_L I don't know if you were directing that to me or not but the one SS Header above the AME with the VBand clamps will require welding in two locations - One at the collector and one at the exhaust pipe extending back. The Clamp joins the two.

    The question was directed at anyone who knew, thanks for the answer.

    I thought maybe they used a collet type arrangement rather than welding. Seems like I've seen that somewhere. Or maybe it's wishful thinking.

    Do the V band clamps require welding? I was under the impression they didn't.
    The V-band clamps do not require any welding. But, the two v-band flanges do.

    Paul, any idea why the 2292 Hooker headers have a flat plate welded to #3 tube? I wonder how they expect you to make the collector connection on the coated headers.

    I have no idea why there is a flat plate on #3 collector...

    I never noticed it on the pic until you said something here.

    Might be a Hooker Headers nameplate they tack weld onto that collector tube. Seems mine had a plate like that and I removed it.

    The Hooker nameplate is on #1 tube.

    Did some Google searching of Hooker 2292 and 2293 images...
    The pics are a bit small, so when I enlarge them, they show their low rez...

    here's a 2292, notice no flat plate on #3 collector in this pic.
    2292-hkr.jpg

    And heres 2293, notice no flat plate on the #3 collector in this pic either...

    So moral of the story here is BUYER BEWARE. Check with the vendor you are purchasing these from to get a good idea of what you are buying. That 2292 image you showed above does seem to have a flat area at the top of #3 collector, but it may be a reflection of something caught during the snap of the photo, thus providing a giant head fake on "what you see is what you get".

    Summit's website isn't very helpful on this either. A call to them to ask about it wouldn't be a bad idea, if one was going to order it.
    Would save returning them later on...

    Paul, it's not a reflection. I have a set in the shop right now and it's a flat plate welded to the tube. No idea what it's there for.

    To clarify an earlier image I posted (SBC Headers from AME), [I have been out of pocket] their product for LS hooks over the top in a similar way as does the second tube. I don't have their LS tubes here however, I may have some at later date.
