English translation:header and manifold
Explanation:
The "header" or "engine head" is the top of the engine block (testate).

I would need a little more context in order to be more confident because there are certainly many parts on a car that are "tubes" (tubi). However, the exhaust manifold are tubes that run out of the engine head and connect it to the rest of the exhaust system. This also makes sense with "basamenti" which should be "engine crankcases" or the lower part of the engine block.
