Finding A New Set of Headers

So another post about headers

I currently have a set of hookers 2451 headers but I want some ceramic coated headers. The driver side header currently runs on the floor when I hit alarms bump. So I'd like to get a different brand or set to see if it changes anything. Any recommendations?

Are there any shorty headers that fit my 327 camaro with power steering, AC and clutch linkages?

Re: Finding A New Set of Headers

Dyna Tech make great looking and great fitting long tube headers, mine fit with no problems anywhere. they tuck up nice to the floor and clear the power steering. Sanderson also make good shortie headers

Re: Finding A New Set of Headers

I don't know about any shorty headers,but I know that Dougs and dynatech fit about aswell as you can get for an off the shelf long tube.
My dynatechs couldn't get ant tighter to the floor or crossmember without causing interference.

I don't think any header with a 3 bolt non-rotatable header to collector flange should be considered now days,there are far better options.

I know I've replied to 2 or 3 of these posts in the last couple of months. some very recent results with good information should show up if you search headers.

Re: Finding A New Set of Headers

I've got a set of I think summit headers that checks all of those boxes. Slightly used but I'd sell them rather cheap if you're interested.

Finding a header that clears the factory a/c suitcase is a challenge. Doug Thorley Tri-Y headers is one of the few that do. If your headers hit the floor when you hit a speed bump, I would check the condition of your body mount bushings and engine mounts.

X2 on Dynatech headers. Just put a set on my 67 with a 383. Fit great and still had tons of room. Also the new ball and socket flange is the only way to go... love them.

According to Sumitt - Dynatech street stock headers can clear AC also. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/d...make/chevrolet The Dynatech Muscle Max will also work with AC. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/d...nditioning/yes
Some Dynatech headers will not fit AC so choose wisely !

Re: Finding A New Set of Headers

I jus put a set of Hooker mid length headers on a car I'm doing for a friend. The mids were used for max ground clearance.

Easy install and very good clearance all around.
