    Summit has their 159.99 ones just wondering where I can find some for like $100? Why are shorty headers more than my full lengths? I don't want to run them but do to the rotated case I'd rather keep my case out of the rocks and lose say 10 or 15 horsepower. I know Hedman makes a set I think is cheaper than the Summit ones but can't locate them.

    just ordered a set for a V8 swap in a S10. $125, better than the summit priced ones and I don't think the summit ones come with collectors.

    they just make a generic truck header /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif they list it for the newer ones but it will work fine on older ones since I've seen them in person.

    That sounds about right, mine came w/ everything (headers, a collector on the headers themself and an extra for the pipe, and gaskets. and a bunch of stickers for the extra HP /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    How do shorty headers help with a rotated case?

    rotated all the way up my front shaft would be hitting the passenger side collector. This way I can route around that.

    Exactly, with the regular long headers the collector was directly in the way of the driveshaft. with everythng moved back w/ the shortys you can route the exhaust any way you want.
