Check with Summit...Jegs, or others. Try a search....might just find something. :eek::yes:

I really wanted to know exact models of what people have bought, and I know they need to be pre bent for the power steering. There are a lot to choose from so yes I guess I could search all day and night which I have done already. I just thought it would be easier to get the exact info from anyone who has done the leg work already.

Check out this thread:
http://www.stevesnovasite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=113310&highlight=summit+headers

It shows Jegs cheapies and Summit cheapies side by side...they're pretty much the same thing. I went with Summit cheaps...just had to knock a small dent in one of the pipes for power steering clearence.

However, I think these vary slightly from set to set (since they're cheap)...I had the jegs headers on previously and didn't have to put a dent in one...but that was also with an old steering pump...maybe it rusted down or something :rolleyes:

i bought a set of flow techs w/ pipes and mufflers 2 1/4 inch for 279$from jc witney all fit like a glove, tails and all:yes:
Do you still have exact model #s? No problem with clearance of power steering?


Thanks a bunch!

Ian. BY FAR the best cheap headers out there are summit headers. they where 90.10 shipped to my door and they came with all the bolts and hardware,EVERYTHING.

I even got a 20 dollar off coupon for my next purchase in the packaging slip! talk about pwn!!

I would recommend these to you though. because the paint on the first one sucks ***

they the same headers though!



to install them I had to crawl up from under the bottom pull off the trans linkage (be careful with that) and pull the temp gauge out of the head. took me a couple hours to complete. You can get the trans linkage back on it just takes a little work.

Here's a couple pics of the summit headers with ceramic coating...I had to dimple the pipe to clear the power steering box.

Only other concern I have is the how low the drivers side hangs. Seems to be no reason for it to hang that low. For a stock height car shouldn't be a problem.
