  • WTB: 4 to 1 Comp Header and Wheels

    Hi All,

    I am finishing up on a rebuild and competition upgrade to my 1991 Caterham with 1700 AX block Super Sprint engine with DeDion rear, left hand drive, a car I built and have owned since new.

    I have been trying to source a 4 to 1 competition header (1 1/2" primaries, 2" collector) from the US new or used to no avail and just got a price of 765 pounds from Caterham for a new one. Trying to come to grips with that cost, any ideas on where another might be available?

    Also wanting to buy four new Panasport light weight racing wheels and understand the the US dealer is having trouble getting new ones from Japan. I am looking for 6" or 7" wide 13" diameter wheels (Panasport or other lightweight) with 4 by 4 1/4" pattern with 4" back space. Any help or ideas, new or used?

    You might check into Burns Stainless, I believe in Orange County CA. They may be able to make them for you. There are other header makers out there as well.

    Kodiak makes a good lightweight wheel, I have heard their delivery is slow but I have not first hand experience. I have the wheels and the lighter wheels make a difference.

      Speaking from very recent experience, I can say that Burns doesn't fabricate headers anymore. They only sell components for other fabricators. Of this I am quite certain.

        Just a thought: Maybe try Superformance for a price?
