Modified S & S from [email protected] Several members on this site run them, good fit and ground clearance on a lowered car.

I had the Summit ones in my 67 and they fit very well with great clearance. Can't beat the price!

Yes, power steering with a Tremec. They sat higher than my Hooker Super Comps.

If you want great clearance, look into the Doug Thorley, that sat higher than the frame rails and oil pan. They are $750+.

Bang for the buck are the Summit ones. If you don't like them you can still sell them for at least $150 used.

Here are some pictures.

Oh, I forgot to mention. My Hooker headers are the 1 7/8" with 3.5" collectors ceramic coated, I have pictures of these too. The fit is great but they hang down pretty low. These are big block size headers and everyone tells me they are way overkill for a small block but I will be pushing 600+ after I install my blower.

Re: Best fitting headers? Help

I think the Summit headers are going to be my choice. You cant beat $190 for ceramic coated headers and they are advertised to fit my 4 speed car. I'd rather have 16 guage but again, you cant beat the price. I think I've seen that they are made by Flow-Tech.
I've got to pull the heads and change intake by May. Cruising season starts if the snow melts so I'll be ordering a set soon.
