    I am looking for some shorter headers for my blazer. The ones I have now come down so far that I have to have two 90% bends in the pipe to get it over the first cross member. I want some that are short enough that I can get over the cross member without the bend. I will probably buy ones set up for an oxygen sensor for future injection. Anybody have ones that they like? And do you have starter problems with them.
    Thanks, T

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Have you looked into headers for a car maybe or even some shorty headers?

    Summit has a pretty nice set of their own brand ofblock hugger headers that I have put on a few street rods and had good results with. They are pretty reasonable at around 70 bucks. of course, you will need to rework your exaust system from the collectors back. The headers have 2 1/2" collectors.

    I'm running Summit truck headers on my 89. They are very short. They even bolted right up to my stock 3" exahust system. No starter problems.They come with the O2 sensor fitting too. Combined with a flowmaster 70 series muff it flows very well. I am very happy with them. They are tight and solid with no gasket leaks.

    Thunder, do you have the P/N? Are these the shorties or the standard type?
