Re: what kind of headers - new crate 502 cui.in a 1969
Hooker Super Comp 2205,..2" long tubes (though in some publications it's listed as 1-7/8"). Best fitting of them all,..no PS clearance issues. If your heads use studs, replace the lower studs, just below the header flanges, with regular bolts.
Other than that, I had a minor fuel line re-route and the rest was bolt-up and start-up.
2205-1 is the coated version,..about $500. Do a search on this site, " Hooker 2205" for more info. I've tried Hedman's and the fit is not nearly as good as the Hooker 2205's for many reasons.
