Not a big boat person but the little things i know i think they are automotive headers as i am sure that marine headers are made so water cools the motor and exits out the exhaust

+1 for car..

boat headers are generally a mirror image of each other.. due to the fact they dont have any clearance issues..

This is true.

Your thinking more of outboard motors.

Boat headers are big lumps with water cooling jackets so they are definitely car headers.
What car do want them for. I ask because the header companies only seem to make 4 into 1 windsor headers for XR-Y Falcon.

not necessarily... many circuit race boats run typical non jacketed extractors... they typically tip water in right at the end of the collector as the msb state all water has to be dumped throught the exhaust..

water has to exit via the exhaust regardless of inboard/ outboard.. (but the big twin turbo skiboats seem to get away with it..)

It acts as a baffle to quiet exhaust and keep heat down on inboard boats..
The flange would be 180* for boat, looking at bolt hole position..
Car for sure..
