SEMA 2011: Get Uncorked with American Racing Headers

In addition to supplying headers for the Baldwin-Motion Camaros, we also noticed American Racing Headers' handiwork under the hood of the just-unveiled COPO Camaro concept car - that's a pretty strong endorsement from GM, if you ask us...

The folks at American Racing Headers have one simple goal – to “Maximize American Horsepower” – and here at SEMA 2011 we got a close up look at their full line of headers and exhaust systems for America’s finest autos (one of which, the new Baldwin Motion Camaro we told you about recently, was on display at their booth sporting a set of their stainless 5th Gen headers).

It’s an exciting time at American Racing Headers, as they expand their line to cover more models. They recently began producing exhaust systems for America’s most popular pickup truck, the F-150, which now features the same 5.0L Coyote as the Mustang. Not every car has to have a V8 to get a set of American Racing Headers, as they offer a system for the latest generation of V6 Mustangs… and for that matter a car doesn’t even have to be an American Car to get a set of their headers, as 2007-2011 Mercedes E63/CLS63 owners can now pick up a custom designed exhaust from American Racing for their V8 luxury cars. (Don’t laugh – these things make 500 horsepower out of the box, and pick up an additional 40 HP with American Racing’s headers.)

Owner Nick Filippides also talked with us about a few exciting products that are in the works, including a further expansion into the domain of muscle cars. And LSX fans, stay tuned for even more exciting news from American Racing in the near future – there’s a new application for 5th Gen Camaros that will be yet another first in the market for American Racing Headers!

ARH's catalog includes applications for the Big Three domestic muscle cars - in addition to the Challenger complete exhaust system shown here, they've got headers and exhausts for everything from V6, Modular, and Coyote Mustangs to 5-liter F-150's and LS-engined Chevy and GMC trucks.
