Loc: Formerly Calgary, Alberta, now...
Looking for better exhaust and intake for my 250ci engine, I like the looks of these cast iron headers but I have never read anything about them; did a search here and did not see anything, so...
Has anyone used those? Good quality, good fit? Good performance?
Any comments before I jump?
Thanks

I've never used those headers, but I have purchased parts from Tom Langdon/Stovebolt with never a problem. Tom knows performance inlines about as much as anybody.Call him on the phone and discuss whatever issue you are concerned with.

I've been running them on my daily driver for seven years, 59000 miles. I haven't had to touch them. Good quality, good fit, and the iron-oxide coating is protecting them wonderfully. I'm happy with the performance but I've got nothing to compare to since that's the only configuration I've had on the truck and no dyno testing.
