    Would like to get some torque and ponies out of the 97. Would ask on Fullsizechevy but they are so Tri Y biased its not funny, and the ones that aren't think shorty headers are godly /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif.

    Gibson, Edlebrock, & Summit make headers for that model year. I would say the first two should be good ones. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    see heres the thing, the best headers have equal length tubes, or at least close. 2 of those brands don't care about that. Gibson and Edelbrocks are insane. I hate coated and all this crap, damn companies think cause its going on a 97 its gold.

    See everyone says that, but the only article I've ever seen that involved Tri Ys said exactly the opposite. And I just don't want to run them.

    The Other Guys Have heard that they are good. 1/2" thick flanges. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif Also a LITTLE more than Thorleys.
