Best headers for clearance

I'm going to be buying a set of headers for my 67 with a 350 and was just looking for some opinions on which style gives the most clearance/accessibility under the hood... I've always had a heck of a time getting to the plugs or the starter, in your opinion which kind give you the most room, the long tube style, shorty style, or the ones that have the two middle pipes coming straight down together?

Re: Best headers for clearance

First of all it is hard to make a decision when you do not give any information about your car except that it is a 1967 with a 350 engine. Does it have power steering, AC, auto or 4 speed trans. Check out these Dynatech headers. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/dt...7/model/camaro Here is another set of Patriot Headers like all headers they say if the car has any aftermarket parts it is the op's responsibility to make sure the headers fit. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/pt...t/model/camaro and last but not the least Doug's Headers. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/do...7/model/camaro

I have the basic no-name full length headers. I scored them off craigslist for $40. There is room enough to change the plugs, but it is so tight on a couple of the plugs, I am unable to get a compression test to thread in. I went with accel header plugs for additional clearance. I have straight plug heads. My only gripe was the driver side collector hung down about an inch below the passenger side. I fabricated the exhaust to it.

The starter was not much of an issue, but I am running a nipondenso type min-starter. I imagine a full-size starter would be pretty tight under there.

There is simply not much room under the car's floorboard there, so if you are concerned about fit I would consider running the 'shorty' 3/4 length.

If you have power steering, your options become more limited.

The important thing here is that you ask me what kind of car I've got. "I've got a BITCHIN' CAMARO"
