prod hedman11


American Made "Tight Tubes" Street Rod Hedders, from Hedman Hedders, have a patented collector design that tucks in tight against the engine block, providing more clearance during custom engine installs. They are ideal for narrow frame rails, or for virtually any tight application where the use of ordinary block hugger hedders is impossible, and off the shelf hedders are non-existent. Since the unique design of the Tight Tubes collector produces as much power as a standard hedder collector, builders have more design flexibility without sacrificing performance
