LC Engineering is hooking us up

LC Engineering has realized that their bad ass header for 22r's don't fit on Formula Toy's. Since the transmission sits up so high (to get a flat bottom) the LC header hits the floorboard.
SOOOO, we arranged to send Gary hall's f-toy up there so they could design a header that would fit. Check Gary Hall's buildup for a couple more pictures.

As you can see, these headers are bad ass. They're priced at $300 for header, gaskets, flange and hardware as a promotional deal. They want to try to get 8 sets ordered for the first run.
If you are interested call them. They will fit on almost all toyota powered buggy's. I guarentee you will notice a seat of your pants increase in power by just bolting this thing on.

I'm still an extreme newb when it comes to Toyota power/drivetrains. Would this work on a 22RE or just a 22R?

Thanks, header is

I dont get it.
Are you trying to flat belly all the way up under the oil pan?by raising the motor?
Ive got a flat belly and havent had any header clearance issues.
The lowest part of the header is about 3/8" below the frame for about 2" long, and its way up by the shackle.
Ive got A thorley tri y, and another one, they booth fit like a glove, and teminate right inline with the frame, rather than pointing at the ground at 45degree angle.

I was gonna cry about the price,
until I priced the one I bought used, it is over $300 new .

Its cool they are kicking down for causes, and devolping products for those who want the bling.

They are that length to maintain torque and if the exhaust is bashed from bellow they can be repaired with a low dollar trip to your local muffler shop for a new 2 1/4 head pipe. Their flange uses a stock Yota flange gasket. The ceramic coating over the stainless tubes on the production sets will make them drivers foot and crew friendly.

P/s A big thumbs up for LC Engineering, by far the easiest and most cooperative group of people I have ever worked with in many years of racing.

That's because whoever built your floorboard did a great job


Looks like a nice header.

We don't move the motor. We just tilt it foreward as the trans goes up. When we do this, the original LC header don't fit.
