Headers - need headers for 67 Nova with Church rack & pinion for 350SBC fast burn alum heads angle plugs & D ports with Nova shock towers & turbo 350 floor shift - Church Boys says their $1299 headers fit / have asked for pictures

Bucket seats - bought nice pair came out of 1966 vintage (no seat back lock) GTO, Chevelle, Buick Skylark I think. trying to install in place of bench seat. Appears 1/2" longer seat track bolt holes spacing than bench seat. Looks like i need 2 brackets over hump for inner bucket seat bolts. Would like to go with OEM mounting for safety. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks, Fred So. MD

Even though you've probably already got your headers by now I'll share just in case it helps someone else. I have a '70 Nova with the SP383 GM Crate motor. With the Fast Burn heads. Getting headers was a huge pain in the butt because of the Fast Burn heads. Everywhere I called said they didn't have headers for the Fast Burn heads in my year Nova. But Summit said Doug's would fit. I called Doug's and they said "theoretically they fit but they've never done it". Well, with the headers bolted on I had about 1/16" of gasket touching both the heads & the headers. The only thing I could find to fit were Sanderson's mid length. They fit great & look good. You'll have to call Sanderson't & talk to Donna & she'll give you the part number. It's a long story & confusing but to try to simplify it. There's a set of headers that their website says fit. But they don't. There's also a set on their web site that says they don't fit but they do. Donna knows this but whoever I talked to the first time I called didn't know Lol... They were in the $500 range & powder coated... The Sanderson's fit my old 305 motor with steel heads with no clearance problems. But on the Fast Burn heads that had to be dented a little... Yeah, think twice before you use Fast Burn heads....
