So I'm having a tough time finding headers to fit the '68 Camaro, which seems silly because it's got soooo much room in the engine compartment.
'68 Camaro RS
unisteer rack & pinion conversion kit
Most headers sweep back, which, on the drivers' side interferes with the lower swing arm on the clutch z-bar. Most block huggers dump straight down in between cylinders 3 and 5, where the steering shaft is in the way.
What I really need is a driver's side header that dumps straight down between cylinders 5 and 7.
I *thought* I found the perfect set at summit racing:
But the picture is misleading:
... The header looks to dump down exactly where I want it, but when I ordered this part all I got was 2 shorties with swept-back collectors.
... and looking at the bolt pattern in the stock pick from summit, it actually looks like an LS1 bolt pattern, even though the gasket paired with the headers in the pic is a standard straight-across bolt pattern. So apparently summit is confused as to what they are actually selling (even though I verified TWICE on the phone that the picture I referenced was the part I was ordering).
Anyway, does anyone had an idea as to which headers will fit my combo? I'd rather not pay to have them fabbed.
Thanks in advance!
Oh, and here's the car:
