Question motor mount question

When I do my engine swap, I am going to put a set of hooker super comp headers on my 67 Camaro. I want to run the 1 3/4 primaries, and I was wondering which small block engine mounts I needed so that I wouldn't have to bash the primaries in order to clear the steering box. I have a set of 1 5/8" hedman headers now, and the tubes are dented in pretty good and are still touching the steering box. I have HEI now, and will run a smaller MSD distributor when I do the engine swap, so that is not an issue for me. Here is a picture of how it is now.

1967 Camaro SS: 406 sbc, 522hp/514 ft lbs, Doug's 1 3/4" headers, M20, posi, 3.73's, vintage air gen IV, IROC steering box, Comp Eng. weld-in sfc's & traction bars, chrome US Mags

Re: motor mount question

I use those headers on my 69. I have 307 frame stands and motor mounts, and no issues with the power steering box at all. However, I had to dimple one tube to clear the pitman arm. The driver's side header hangs pretty low, so be forewarned. And Hooker thought it a good idea to have the collector flange rotated so that on that header the bolt is at the bottom, which further reduces ground clearance.

Re: motor mount question

I run 1 5/8 Hooker Super Comps on my car with the standard 350 motor mount and it clears the steering box no problem.

Re: motor mount question

Are you committed to the super comps? I just put a set of Doug's tri-y's (D375Y) on my 67 with stock motor mounts and have no clearance issues.

Re: motor mount question

Thanks for the replies. I am going to run full length headers with 1 3/4" primaries. If there is another brand out there that fit better than the super comps with the same design, please chime in. However, I can't stand how those tri-y headers look. Definately not for me.

Tri-Y's on a lot of hi-po street motor combinations run darn good even if they are funky looking.

And way back when they were the hot set-up until they started making high volume production runs of the more race oriented 4-tube, long jobbers..
