    dude zoomie type headers rule. Make sure to get a flapper or something to cover the end(s) so junk dont get down in there.

    those would look sweet sticking out of the hood of a K5. And I bet that if you romped on it at night, it'd shoot flames... now try and tell me that wouldn't be sweet. Only problem is, don't most engines require at least some back pressure to run at their best? I assume there is just about no backpressure (if any at all) with those headers.

    The motor I'm building won't need any back pressure.. I'm thinking it will be at 600hp from my 350.

    Well, then that means you HAVE to put those headers on it because it will be absolutely sweet. And then when you get them on it you need to take pictures of it and put them on the site so we can all marvel at it. Be sure to include some pics of it shooting fire at night...
