    i am in the market for some headers and i was wondering if anyone is/has used summits block hugger headers? They are cheap and the extra room would be nice for getting the exhaust away from the shackles. What other brands offer block huggers or have good clearance away from the shackles?

    I did a quick measuring session on mine, and my Hedmans have 4¾" of clearance at the shackles.

    Hey man,
    I don't think too many people will guarentee that block huggers will fit. they may hit the frame depending on the brand.several of the block huggers are meant for really early cars with few crossmembers. just a thought.
