Default Wraith Headers 1st attempt!

Here is my first attempt to make some headers for my wraith. Please tell me if these look scale enough. Thanks!







Still not permanently mounted yet, waiting on feed back. Thanks again.

Nice looking pieces. It all depends on what engine you want your Wraith to have. If it's a 22R Toyota 4-banger you want, then I would say that pipe is the perfect size. If your plans include a V8, scale-wise, they look like they would be a bit too small. If it was my rig, I would also maybe point them a little farther down, just to keep from breathing all the fumes. Don't get me wrong, they look really nice!! I like the look...

That pipe looks fantastic. Good scale for a 2-1/2 pipe (8cyl), Which imo a truck this size would need. I think if you set them back about another inch it would be more scale. And of course you are planning on adding three on each side right? If not you may want to increase the tube to simulate a 3" for a post header tail pipe.

Even a small block would simply have to be set waaaay back. All the way to the firewall for a 1:1.
Where it sits now, all the engine weight would be right on top of the cross member.

I would have upturned center dumps on my 1:1 ...if I had a 1:1

It's a 3/8" tube that I used, the reason I was putting it in that location is because my lipo battery is right behind it and I didn't want that in the way for getting the battery in and out easily. Thanks for the input, I will try the 7/16" tube for my next attempt at these headers,, I will also move them around too, to see what different location look like. Thanks again everyone for the input.
