Hedman’s new mid-length headers for small block, big block, and ls-swapped C-10s and C-20s maximize power and flow without sacrificing ground clearance.
Whittier, Calif. (November, 2013) – Chevrolet C10 and C20 pickup trucks have become one of the most popular classic trucks amongst enthusiasts thanks to their plentiful numbers, an abundance of available parts and, in the case of the C10, a stock car-style truck-arm suspension that perfectly complements a lowered stance. Adding to the popularity of these trucks is their ability to accept just about any Chevy V8 whether it be a classic small block, monster big block, or modern LS engine. However if your truck is lowered, traditional long tube headers can have major ground clearance issues leading to scraped and dented primary tubes. Now, with the release of Hedman’s new series of mid-length headers, C10/20 owners can get the most horsepower possible from their C10’s engine, without having to worry about costly header or exhaust system damage caused by diminished ground clearance.

CW Restoration Shop has a second vehicle it is bringing out to the 2013 SEMA Show – a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup. This pickup hosts a number of upgrades from the Hedman Performance Group on its small block powerplant including a set of Hedman Hedders, Hamburger’s Performance Valve Covers, and a Trans Dapt dipstick. Emphasizing the smallest of details is what this truck is all about. Looking at the finish of the wood in the bed, the trim and gauges on the dash, and colored accenting throughout shows the kind of attention to detail that this world class builder put into this project.
This beautiful Cameo will be on display in the Griffin Thermal Products booth (#24935) of the SEMA Show in the Central Hall, so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to CW Restoration Shop’s Facebook.
CW Restoration Shop is bringing out a wild ’69 Camaro to the 2013 SEMA Show. Dubbed the “Cam-anche,” this F-Body is keeping it classic with a small block 350 with Edelbrock heads, Demon carb, Edelbrock E-Force supercharger, Garlitts Street Catchcher scoop, and Hedman Hedders. Putting the power to the ground is the job of the Nitto-wrapped HRE forged wheels, while Wilwood disc brakes bringing everything back under the speed limit. But this F-Body is more than just a straight line performer thanks to its DSE four link suspension and coilovers. Finished off with a custom, but highly functional interior, the Cam-anche blends form and function beautifully.
The Cam-anche will be on display in the Magnaflow booth (#23543) of the SEMA Show in the Central Hall, so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to CW Restoration Shop’s Facebook.
The Custom Shop is bringing a two Hedman-equipped vehicles to the 2013 SEMA Show – the SSL727 Camaro and this “Stroker Chevelle.” This 1966 Chevelle gets its name from the stroked 408cid LS3 powerplant under its hood. Fortified with all sorts of aftermarket goodies like a Howards custom camshaft, Manley rotating assembly, Edelbrock high rise intake, twin Holley “Terminator EFI” throttle bodies, and Hedman Hedders, this all-aluminum mill cranks out a whopping 600+hp and 545+ft-lbs of torque. But like every good SEMA car, monster power is only part of the story – these cars have to look as good as they go. Every panel of this Chevelle’s body has been replaced with brand new sheet metal from Goodmark and covered in Pro-Spray paint with custom striping. Riding on Weld Racing Wheels, this A-Body’s lowered stance comes courtesy of MBM tubular control arms and drop spindles with Firestone Air Ride delivering a smooth ride.
The Stroker Chevelle will be on display outside of the SEMA Show in the Car Crazy booth so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to builder John Wargo’s Facebook.
John Wargo from The Custom Shop is bringing this wild 5th Gen Camaro out to the 2013 SEMA Show. John and his crew left nothing untouched on this highly customized Camaro they call SSL727. The body has been widened front and rear with custom fender flares that flow into redesigned front and rear bumpers. The car has also undergone a conversion from 2+2 convertible to two-seat roadster with a custom 5,000-watt Sony audio/video system taking residence in the former rear seating area hiding underneath the motorized tonneau cover. But don’t fool yourself into thinking that this Camaro is all show and no go. The 727 in its moniker comes from the horsepower output of the Procharged LSX376 with Hedman Hedders hiding underneath its highly stylized hood. Bringing this monster to a stop is the job of its 16-inch Brembo brakes that reside within the 22-inch Forgeline wheels while its Eibach suspension and Granatelli subframe connectors keep it firmly planted on the road.
SSL727 will be on display outside of the SEMA Show in the Car Crazy booth so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to builder John Wargo’s Facebook.
The second race of the National Muscle Car Association’s NMCA West series drew hundreds of racers and muscle car fans to the historic Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, CA. Always the favorite venue of the season, the weekend was packed with full-throttle racing action and more than a few upsets. The Hedman Hedders Nostalgia Street Car class was once again one of the largest classes of the event, with 41 cars making the grid for the start of elimination racing on Sunday morning. Though the field was packed with seasoned veterans like Mike Nordahl (who won 3 Wallys in a single event last year), Ron De Hoop, Steve Cox, and Frank Coscarelli, stiff competition and some very determined racers would see many of these icons fall.
