[ROVERNET - UK] Rover P6B - fitting of headers

I have tried to source headers in the UK for my P5B without any luck. The
next best option would be to use a sports exhaust system.

Fitting them into the available space may be a bit of a problem if you get
headers designed for other applications; there's not a whole lot of room
between the cylinder heads and the base unit on a P6B, so a set that might
fit another car with the V8 may require serious surgery. 

My own feeling is that while these Rovers are quite sporting cars, the use
of headers gives the car an aggressive and noisy edge that doesn't quite fit
unless you're racing or hot-rodding. In my mind the effect is rather like a
Harley Street specialist wearing Doc Martens to the office. 

That said, headers have been made for this job, just make sure you don't get
sold something that will only fit a V8 Defender or Disco

Hello to Rovernetters,
