    I'm Considering a set of headers for a lil boost for the ole 350. I have a couple of concerns before I make a move. 1) Which brand to buy...I hear some are nothing but problems. 2) Will I have problems with them hitting my frame or driveshaft?

    Maybe both of my concerns can be fixed by getting a certain brand /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I'll say Doug Thorley's if your not on a budget. Mine were easy to install, and dont hit the frame or the driveshaft. But expect to pay, especially if you get the coated like i did.

    I have the Edelbrock TES. they are good headers. Have had then for 3 years now and had no problems. rust or leaks.
    However I hear the crossover pipe may hit the front driveline with lifts over 4"

    I full agree on the Doug Thorleys Tri-Y headers. </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />

    I got the Dynomax Cerama-Coat headers. They fit really good and the price is awesome. $219.00 and a lifetime warranty.

    mine were, its been a year, but i believe they were like $450 or so. They looked GREAT, till i went and got em muddy /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif . Now im just too lazy to clean the mud off every 2 weeks, when i go wheeling. SO now they look rusted but they aint.

    Geat the Coated ones or take them someplace before you install them.... Keep the heat inside the header and save a starter or two....
