WHP Painted 6-2-1 Exhaust Header Datsun 280ZX 1981-1983


The WHP Painted 6-2  Street Exhaust Header for Datsun 280ZX is a great way to add bolt-on power to an L-series engine.  This header is best suited to most stock and modified street engines.   Coupled with a free flowing exhaust system, significant horsepower gains can be realized.


The WHP Painted 6-2  Exhaust Header for Datsun 280ZX is made of mild steel, has high quality welds for leak-free performance, and features a sturdy, thick flange for consistent sealing.  The flange is the same thickness as the intake manifold thickness, eliminating the need for washer spacers or applying uneven pressure to the intake/exhaust sealing surface.


The header terminates in a dual pipe outlet and includes a collector (Y) pipe for adapting the header to the stock catalytic converter.     For non-emission legal high performance exhaust applications, a 2.5″ collector pipe is available upon request.

Painted Finish

The paint applied to this header is to prevent rusting of the header before installation in the vehicle.  It is not a high heat or durable paint and will burn off quickly after engine operation.   The paint should be lightly sanded and a proper high heat header paint applied before final installation and engine running.

Square Port or Round Port:

It is up to the purchaser to determine and ensure the correct header is ordered.  Wrong application headers will only be accepted as returns with a 30% restocking charge.  If you are unsure of which header to order, please contact us first so we may help you choose the correct one.  Correct exhaust port configuration is determined by cylinder head casting #, found between the #1 and #2 spark plug holes on the cylinder head.  Check the listing below to determine your port type:
