Re: longtube or shorty headers for my 69?
Shorty headers usually have the collectors at the center of the engine. This is NOT a good place on a first generation Camaro ! The steering box is there !
If you go with Hooker Headers Long tube, get the competition series. Not the Super Comps. The Super comps are larger tube anyway, which you will not want.
Do you know what frame stands you have ? The 302/350 stands the Hooker Competition Headers fit well. The 307/327 stands the Dynomax or Summit brand fit better.
I have heard good reports on the Thorley Tri-y's as fitting either type of frame stand.
