    I have a 1987 k5 blazer and i want to get a set of the Edelbrock shorty headers without A.I.R. but i can not find a part number or anything. Or has anyone used a set of short style headers from anyone where it just replaces the exhaust manifolds i just need /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif PLEASE!!! /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    call summit racing tech line (not parts order line) and they can give you the part number for what you are looking for - you can go to their web page for the phone numbers. edelbrock's web page will also list the part numbers - edelbrock technician by phone = 1-800-416-8628 from 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday-Friday, PST.

    i know it was not your question, but you are not going to get the same low end torque with the shortys or their TES set ups as you would with a long tube header.

    Edelbrock does not sell JUST the shorty headers for 87 and up TBI trucks. You have to buy the whole TES system.

    For that matter, the only TES kits I have seem for these trucks all have the AIR plumbing. I don't think that Edelbrock makes a non-AIR TES kit for the Blazer.

    Edelbrock makes the Non AIR TES. I have one. PN# 6857
    The only other company that makes shorty headers for TBI trucks is JBA. Last I checked a set was over 600 bones /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Doug Thorley makes a TRY Y system for TBIs I think they are over $400

    Thats about all I have ever seen made that will fit 87-91 Blazers

    When i go to the summit website and put in the part #6857 it saids it is the one with AIR. Maybe i am doing something wrong. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Heres the app chart from Edelbrock.
    edelbrock application chart
    K-5 Blazer full-size 87-91 5.7L T.B.I. w/o A.I.R. - - PN #6857 -

    You aint doing nothing wrong. Summit must have their numbers screwed up again. There is only 1 number diferent between the AIR and Non AIR.... 6857= Non AIR. 6858 =AIR.
    Prolly a mistake in data input.
