I need to know if flowmaster is a good brand of header. Also, I can get them new for about 60 bucks plus shipping. That sounds reasonable to me. Here is my car, could you tell me if there is a problem with installation. 74 camaro, 73 chev 350 motor and tranny. No A/C, no power brakes, stock headers right now, dual exhaust out the back. If you need more info let me know and I will post. Trying to make a good informed decision fast. Thanks, Scott

You get what you pay for,
$60.00 bucks sounds like leaks and rusted pipes

Supposed to be brand new, look like new in the picture. I just want to know if that is good buy if as they say they are "new".

If you get to Dallas, you can have mine for free. They have about 500 miles on them. The fit is nice, they don't extend below the car to scrape. I am just putting my car back to original. I just took them off tuesday. Sorry I don't want to ship them.

Doug could I ask you a couple of questions? I have kind of got cold feet on this purchase because when I look at the design and I look at my car it seems I would have to redo the tail pipes to make it work. Maybe I am not looking at it right. If I remember right my exhaust angles down toward the rear of the fire wall and the headers look like they drop down and run straight back. If that is true then I would have to change the pipes and that sounds like more money than I am ready to spend right now. Any comments let me know.

Yes, you will need to modify your existing exhaust pipes to fit the new headers. What diameter are the existing pipes? You might want to change that to take full advantage of your new headers but this means you will need new mufflers too. This is why most people changing over to headers end up with an entire new exhaust system...good luck.
