Doug's HeadersOn January 14, 2005 PerTronix Inc. purchased the assets of Doug’s Headers, a 47 year old exhaust products manufacturer and a current SEMA member.

Doug’s Headers will continue operating in Riverside, California and is the company’s newest addition to their exhaust division, which began with the acquisition of Ermie Immerso Enterprises. Doug’s Headers is the perfect compliment to the Pertronix exhaust division which manufactures a complete line of headers, mufflers, exhaust systems and components for the Street Rod, Muscle Car and air cooled Volkswagen markets under the Patriot, Thunderbird and Smithy’s brand names.

“Doug’s Headers has long been thought of as a premiere exhaust line in the performance industry.”

Doug’s Headers has long been thought of as a premiere exhaust line in the performance industry. The original Doug’s Headers was located in Whittier, California and began producing quality headers in 1958. The current product line not only includes a wide selection of muscle car headers, but also C.A.R.B. approved applications for motor homes and popular late model trucks and SUVS. All headers intended for heavy duty applications utilize 5/8” thick flanges welded to 14-gauge tubing and 3/8” thick flanges welded to 16-gauge tubing for lighter duty applications. Premium gaskets with bolts and connectors are supplied with each header. Metallic ceramic thermal barrier coating is the standard finish on all Doug’s headers.

PerTronix plans to expand the line through new product development and increase brand demand with aggressive advertising and promotional programs.
