    I'm helping my father-in-law monday swap out his diesel for a 350. Thats what he wants. I need to find reasonable prices on the following parts and will need them in hand by the end of the month.
    Please give me some suggestions/with part numbers and places to buy.
    Thanks ahead of time.

    84 GMC Dually 4x4
    6.2 SM465/NP205
    60/14
    Custom fab bed
    Custom winch bumper
    Heavy duty work truck. Welding rig.
    This truck is drove everyday to and from work. Has to use 4x4 daily as he is a pipeline welder and the job sites are fairly nasty.

    I don't know what he's gonna do with the 6.2. We've got to get his work rig running and reliable first.

    Stick with full length headers.

    I'm pretty happy with my hedman elites, although they weren't a PERFECT fit, very few of the "cheaper" headers are. Just some interference with the spring shackle bolt on either side. 69080 rings a bell as to the part # I used. Pretty cheap for a coated header, $250 or so from summit or jegs.

    If I *could*, I'd go for headers that were coated internally as well, but I don't know as anyone is turning those out in the "budget" range like the elites. Not cheap per se, but good headers.

    BTW, another tip, DON'T destroy the stock diesel exhaust if it's not rotted out. Very well mounted, and I was able to make my Hedmans bolt to it by cutting the stock stuff back a bit, and buying pipe sections from Napa. Probably cost me $20 in parts plus the welding time to get them bolted up.
