A Look Back for ARH in 2016
What a year it has been for American Racing Headers. For premium quality headers and exhaust systems for American and import vehicles, there is no better choice than ARH. But along with creating a wide variety of high performance products, we’ve had a year packed with landmark events.
Hellcat Challenger exhaust system cranks out 39 additional rear wheel horsepower on chassis dyno with ARH’s newest exhaust headers and kit – BEFORE TUNE! Those results are even more impressive when you consider that the stock system is rated at 707hp!
ARH continues to expand it line of exhausts targeting the mid-eastern market. Latest kits fit large Japanese trucks including 2006-17 Toyota Tundra, 2002-2017 Nissan Patrol and 1998-2006 and 2008-UP Toyota Land Cruiser/Lexus LX570.
March - April
ARH's newest system for Shelby GT350 delivers an additional 30.4 hp and 18.9 lb.-ft. of torque.
The launch of Chevy’s new Camaro SS challenges ARH engineers to develop a system that increases power and delivers great exhaust sound. Both are accomplished using ARH know-how netting 25-30 additional rear wheel hp – before tune.
June - July
Our header for 1999-2006 Jeep TJ’s featuring rotational firing collector debuts. The new header-mid-pipe kit dramatically improves power output. This system solves a common problem for Jeep owners who often experience cracking in the factory manifold.
Working tirelessly through all three days – ARH sells and installs a record number of kits at the Corvettes At Carlisle event.
Expanded offices in Deer Park, New York facility by 30%.
This will dramatically increase the potential for faster on- time delivery of components and development of new products.
With ARH’s Louie Filippides behind the wheel, the ARH/Farks Camaro raced into the winner’s circle for third time this year, this time at Summit Motorsports Park winning the NMCA Extreme Street class competition. It culminated a two –year run for the Camaro, which set and reset elapsed time records. ARH “Practice What You Preach” has proven to be a winning strategy.
James Meager, with a 2008 Cobra Jet Mustang equipped with American Racing Headers, set the record for the fastest car of its type at Florida’s Space Shuttle Landing Facility running 195.537 mph.
