Re: headers

Matt,

I have the Hooker Super Comps # 2205. They are 2" pipe. They fit pretty nice with power steering. I believe you have a rack so it should not matter. Only thing I dont like about them is the driver side sits lower and I have smashed both sides because my car sits very low. I was running about a 26" tall front tire and changed to a 28" tall tire. That helped alot. If I was to buy a set again I would buy Lemmons but they are over twice as much money.

1969ProStreetCamaro ( david ) just ordered a set from Lemmons. He can tell you all about them.

Thanks, I think the 69 we have has the same ones because they sit really low. And the ground has smashed them up. I just went on to jegs and its seems that they all are 1 5/8s

My Lemons Headers will be delivered this week. I ordered part # BBPT-600. They are an individual header flange design which allows for installation of the headers with the engine in the car. 2 tubes install from the top and 2 tubes install from the bottom on each side. They are designed to provide excellent ground clearance. According to Dan Lemons, they will be higher than the oil pan in the car. My header tubes are 2 1/4".
They are, of course,equal length tubes. They are designed to work with small block or big block frame mounts. All tubes are fabricated to fit between the frame rails and work with or without power steering.
Here are some pics from Dan's Website.........


Here is the link to the BBPT-600 headers if you want to check them out. They are expensive but the quality of work is impressive!!!!!!!!!

Re: headers

I have a set of Lemons headers as well. They are GREAT pieces. Mine were one off custom headers for my car but, it was money well spent. I happen to live close enough (~3 hours) and took my car down to them. VERY good people to deal with. I don't leave my car with anyone and they are the only people to touch it other than me. If you have the extra coin they are worth it. They will fit and fit right.
