    they have made several good systems, but getting them can be spendy. there are a lot of aftermarket ones that are just as good. paw has a big selection of systems, not the cheapest but lets you know whats all out there

    Well I wanted them for my 69 k/5. I wanted something that was better than manifolds but headers are a fitment problem with a 4spd despite most manufacturers saying their headers fit. Does anbody know what years/ chassis i can get these from for sure.

    Set of shorties or block huggers should work. JBA makes a nice header with the outlets up high like the stock 73 up.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    I know they made them in 1989. They were a tubular stainless steel design. The used them on the 305 and the 350s. My GM light duty truck repair manual shows a picture of them. I think they used them on some of the G model and on the P model step vans and motorhome chassis.

    Yeah, they are shown in my 85/86 parts manual. Don't have access to it now, I'll try and get time/remember to look up the part #'s, unless someone else wants to. : )

    IIRC, they were something like $250 EACH from gmpartsdirect.com.
