    I have an 87 K5 tbi with a.i.r. injection. I want to put a set of headers on, but dont have enough money to drop $450 on a set of headers with the air injection fittings on them. I can get headers for a good price with 02 sensor bungs, but not with air. Looking through the jegs website today, I found this product from hedman.

    It says that it is designed to fit all makes of headers. So, if I am correct in my thinking, if I buy a set of regular headers with an 02 sensor bung but no air injection fittings, and I then purchase this kit, will the kit allow me to use the headers and the factory air injection as long as I use these as well? The way I see it, if I am correct, the price of a set of $250 headers, plus $60 for this kit is well under the $450-$550 range for air injection headers. Am I right in thinking this kit will allow me to turn non air injection equipped headers into air injection headers? Thanks.

    Whats wrong with this part number at Jegs? 500-69091

    It says with AIR, and it's what, $278?

    I've got the Hedman Elite 69890 on my '86, according to Hedmans site they aren't made for that truck.

    Especially with our vehicles, it is very hard to find what will fit, based solely on what the part manufacturer says. Hedman is no different, however in my case, since mine don't have AIR, that is probably why they say to '81 only.
