Heat for Rarly8 headers by chance

I have just had some headers from Brian installed and he is not done with the production of the bolt on heater boxes.

By chance does someone have anything that will fit they are either not using and want to part with, or have a design i could have fabbed? I guess in my newbie knowledge i did not realize this meant no heat in the car period.

Gets cold pretty quick in Calgary and no heat at this point will make my driving pretty limited and once we hit September will be done!

Thanks

I think if it were an easy solution Brian'd have it nailed already. Sorry...

A guy took some flexible stainless steel exhaust tube about 2 1/2 inch size and hose clamped it to his headers to make heat enough to defrost. You could do this for a temp. solution but would not do this for a long time as it could cause unwanted corrosion on the headers.

Why will a stainless tube over the stainless headers cause the headers to corrode?

The temp fix is what Brian suggested and I....hope....it is being worked through from my mechanic. Thanks for the help and I will update.

I am almost done with Brians heat exchangers should have something done by the end of the week.

They wont if they are both and the hose clamp are 321 stainless but even 2 different types of stainless will dis-similar metal corrode in the presence of heat that is a problem we have to be careful with in nuclear power plants.

We are working diligently on the exchangers but will not release until completely satisfied.
In the mean time a real quick/cheap/easy fix is to use a length of corrugated aluminum pipe such as what already exists exiting the fan shroud of your engine. Nest this flexible tube next to the header and connect the ends to your existing heater hoses. Secure with clamps and you're done. 15 minute job that costs very little.
It is important to use aluminum as it transfers heat quickly and will not abrade the 321 during vibration. My exchangers will also be made of aluminum.

The EMF between dissimilar stainless steels would be so low that corrosion shouldn't be an issue in the automotive application, especially if it is a temporary solution.
Nuclear service presents much more severe conditions and criticality so it may not be a valid comparison.

Actually the conditions on the car are really more severe than the primary system of a nuclear power plant, the temp. extremes are similar and the primary system has a very carefully controlled chemical environment not anything like the weather extremes the headers endure not to mention the heat soak extremes I believe metallurgy wise it is a very valid comparison, stress cracking in SS only needs temps over 200 deg. and chlorides which are naturally present and the wrong type of metal in contact with it. I would only do it for however long it takes to get the heat exchangers on there.

+1 better fix for a temp. solution

I picked up my car today.....thank god. Shot out to Brian. His stuff is unreal and the shop that installed it was amazed by the quality. Not to mention the support from Brian himself was ridiculously good. He truly loves his work. I have the temp heat and seems to work well. Looking forward to bringing Rarlyl8 to the great white North!
