Question

I'm in the process of building a small block 350 for a 76' camaro. I've not been able to get a clear answer on what type of headers to use. Will I need shortys for ground clearance or can I use standard?

Ground clearance should not be a factor if you are running with stock springs. I run Flow Tech headers on my 75 with no problems.
Hope this helps.

Opinions on headers are like a$$ holes, everybody has one. It seems like everybody has a favorite, so as you receive opinions on which is best, just remember this: Pretty much ANY header is light years ahead of stock manifolds. As lowecw pointed out, if it's not lowered, OR more than an inch or two, clearance should be fine. If you are dropping the car more than that, you may consider shorty's or a tri-y which are also very effective.

Cool

Either header will do fine for ya but for practical reasons take in account the road conditions in the area that you live in. Speaking from experience it matters as I grew up in a small area with not so good roads and streets and wished I had a pair of shortee's. LOL! Just a bit of .02 cents worth. With that you be the judge.

Thanks for input. I'm sure I'll be back with more questions in the future.

Regular long tube headers will work fine. If you buy $90 Hookers or Dynomax and do smash em. its better than smashing $350 headers.

I'm thinking about the Hedman shortys. will these work with a small block and 4 speed in a 69. Any experience with these? I'd like to hook them to a chambered system.
