The Sanderson BB1MV header fits big block Chevrolet Mark V engines in cars, trucks, and street rods where tight fit and performance are a factor. Virtually eliminating ground clearance problems, the BB1MV hangs down less than 11″ from the center of the exhaust ports on the cylinder heads. The BB1MV header is 2″ tighter to the block than any other block hugger header!
The BB1MV will fit most chassis without a cross member beneath the center of the engine block.
NOTE: The BB1MV is designed specifically for the RH-dipstick on the MarkV 502 engine The difference between the more common BB1 and this header set is the tube routing on the right side header differs slightly to accommodate the dipstick location.
Comes with all hardware necessary for installation.

Sanderson’s Ceramic Coating is recommended for every vehicle application and is the default finish selection choice above. To meet high standards of quality, Sanderson applies a multi-layer inside and outside aluminized ceramic coating in-house and then polishes the coating to a high luster. This aerospace and military-grade technology adds excellent protection to your headers, while offering the benefit of thermal control in your engine bay. It also improves cylinder scavenging of exhaust gases, and increases the longevity of your header investment.
When sitting in driver’s seat and engine in front of you, the LEFT header would be the Driver’s Side on LH drive vehicles; coincidentally, means the RIGHT header is on the passenger side. See the detail image above left that describes engine sides.
