A question about Headers

I am putting a rebuilt 350 in my 83 3/4 ton 4x4 and wondering what would be the best bolt on Header( brand, Ceramic....) I have only bought the tried and true hooker headers before. Thanks for any help. [img]images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img]

Re: A question about Headers

I have ceramic coated Dynomax headers and think they're great. I spent the extra $ on ceramic so I don't have to look at rusted tubes all the time.
One thing to consider when using long tube headers is that the collector flange may be real close to the spring shackles. The shackle may or may not hit the flange, but on my truck it is within 1". If I had to do over, I'd probably get some shorty headers and work the exhaust higher up.

Re: A question about Headers

Thanks I was thinking ceramic and was wondering should I go with shorty headers or not, Edelbrock ceramic headers are about $346 to $386 matters where I looked for them and dynomax are $342. Thanks for the help

Re: A question about Headers

I have Hooker Competition Headers on my 350ci in my '78 Blazer. They are full length and seem to do ok. I often considered on replacing them with Thorley Tri-Y shorty headers but were unsure of the performance and fitting to my Truck. Perhaps you may wish to check into the Thorley headers if you want shorties. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
