Quick question about application. I'm thinking of buying some Hooker headers from a person on craigslist but I'm not 100% sure if it will work for my car. The headers are part #2134 and they are originally for 1963-1982 Corvette. I have a 1968 camaro small block (350) with power steering, No A/C. Can anybody foresee any problems with fitment? Thought I'd ask.
p.s. the engine is still on a stand so I cant really mock the parts up. =)

I don't think you even want to think about trying to put vette headers on a Camaro, it ain't gonna happen. The biggest difference is the position of the engine in the chassis.
If you look at you camaro, the frony upper A arm mount is about even with the front of the engine. In a vette, the engine is set back almost 6 inches, the front of the block is about in the middle of the cross shaft.
Here's some pictures: http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view?back=http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?p=69+corvette+chassis+picture&b=19&ni=18&pstart=1&fr2=tab-web&w=800&h=600&imgurl=www.corvetterepair.com/bfg_49/BFG-49---04.jpg&rurl=http://www.corvetterepair.com/bfg_49/bfg_49.htm&size=120k&name=BFG+49+++04+jpg&p=69+corvette+chassis+picture&oid=7ba3fbd11c2d7ab2&fr2=tab-web&no=30&tt=143&b=19&ni=18&sigr=11fkq7574&sigi=11dd4snpj&sigb=13ativfj5
