    FlowTech, or Dynomax, depending on the store. both decent headers for the money.

    headers

    I had dynomax headers on two of my K5s and they came within a fraction of an inch from the passenger side header like banshee said. I think advance sells them for about 100 bucks. :burb: :usaflag:

    Flow tech are just the cheaper line of Hooker headers, pretty good. Wouldn't ceramic coated last a little longer against rust?

    i've had my dynomax blackjack's from advance auto on my 89 for over a year. the only problem i have is that they touch my oil filter. no problem... just mark where it touches, remove the filter, and put a dent in it. just wish i'd paid extra for the ceramic since you can see mine through my fenderwells. not a show truck, but one of the nicer rigs around here.

    i use the auto zone flowtechs and they hang kind of low and come close to my shackle on the passenger side but theyve had no contact yet. other than that i like them and have no problem especially for the price.
