I am looking to get a pair of headers for my sbc. I am just wondering what you guys have used that works and fit well.

Everybody likes "shorties". I like Corvette ram horns. Fit nice and tight and good flow. No leaks!!!! Inexpensive and extra mounting tabs for accessories. Paintable.


Watch out for careful drivers!!!

I've ran the block huggers and ram horns style. (off a 283)

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Last ones I did were stock 1986 Corvette. I had to modify the drivers side to fit my Camaro subframe.

My 52 has a 74 Nova rear steer sub frame.Block huggers would not work on the drivers side.I ended up using 68 Camaro headers [the brand I don't recall at the moment,maybe Hedman].Even then the #1 cylinder pipe had to be modified,and #2 had the snot beat out of it to clear the starter.
