Which headers to use?

The upgrades just keep coming. Lets see, I'm installing d44 up front, installing a t-18a tranny, doing the TR upgrade with msd box, and installing fuel injection(if I figure out which one to get) and my next thing is headers. I have a 79 cj-5 304, and I want to get inframe headers. Can anyone help me with which ones to get and where to get them. Thanks in advance

Keith

Re: Which headers to use?

I've had two types with my 360/T18a/D20 in my CJ5. I don't know the first but I had to beat the crap out of the passenger side to clear the starter and on the drivers side I had to shave the flange on the collector to clear the clutch linkage. The Second set was Heddman and they fit great on the passenger and I didn't have to shave the collector on the clutch side. I only had to zip tie the pos. cable to the starter to the frame to keep it from being fried. Both sucked with regards to the High Temp (I mean soon to flake )cheap paint from the factory.

Re: Which headers to use?

i have seen the headmans.. those are the el cheapo summit ones.. and if you paint them with the super high temp paint.. and throw them on.. they last pretty good.. but i dont see any advantages to using them.. unless you were racing.. and just needed to throw just them on...

Re: Which headers to use?

Well the reason i'm considering headers, is that my stock exhaust is wasted, and I like the true dual exhaust.

Re: Which headers to use?

I got my Hedman headers from Summit for around $95.00. They are inframe ones mounted to a 304/T150/D20 in a '76 CJ5. Really had no problems installing them, i.e., clutch linkage or starter in the way. Only complaint: They soon flaked off the black paint and are now whitish/grey. Other than that, no complaints.

I've got Heddman headers with HTC coating. I had to shave the flange on the DS collector to clear my linkage, but no other problems. No flaking with the expensive HTC coating, looks great and there seems to be a lot less heat in the engine bay.

Re: Which headers to use?

Hey Kahuna, did you buy a kit for the rest of the exhaust, or did you make it custom?

2.5 ft of 2.5" pipe on each side with Purple Hornie glasspacks. Had to bend the right side to get around tranny/t-case as it sits to the right more than the left. Other than that no problem.
