Actually you need CUSTOM ones. the ports on the LS1 are symetrical, and not unlike any other small block. the center two on a samll block are joined, but the LS1 heads are equally spaced. i looked into using 98+ headers on my 68 when i tried this swap, but all the custom fabbing was too much for me. i found i needed custom headers, custom engine mounts, custom wiring, maybe a custom oil pan, custom air intake, a new T56 (i had a LT1 t56) i would have had to move my wiper motor for coil cover clearence, ect..... But yeah, you need new custom headers.

IMHO. When GM decided to obsolete the small block, THEY OBSOLETED THE BEST ENGINE IN THE WORLD!!!

It may not be the most up to date, but THE BEST!!! pdq67
