    WOW! those are some spendy headers.700 bucks??? Or did i look up the wrong part #? You can get headers that make more power for a lot less.
    You wont get the most out of those headers unless you also buy a JBA Ypipe. which will cost even more. If you just bolt them up to your stock Y pipe you are just throwing money away because the stock pipe is more restrictive than aftermarket.
    If you want good coated headers for le$$. I suggest Thorley tri Ys. quite a bit cheaper and they include a Y pipe.
    Also the Edelbrock TES is a good system. Both are 50 state smog legal and sell under $500 for ceramic coated headers.
    But if you have the bucks and want the best go JBA.

    Hawaii is pretty sctrict if i am not mistaken on smogging. Also Edlebrock doesn't make there headers for all blazers. For instance. On my old 78 that had to be smogged they did not make them as of a few months ago. Don't have to worry about it now. I have a 75. LOL
