    Do It Once, Do It Right

    Hedman Elite Headers are the best you can buy. They have thicker flanges, stronger tubing, and thermal coating to withstand full-throttle thrashing and torturous towing. Their extreme-duty construction protects against burnout and exhaust leaks caused by the excessive heat and vibration of high-performance applications. Elite Headers outlast and outperform ordinary headers. All Hedman street headers are made in the USA with a 5-year coating warranty and lifetime product defect warranty.

    Note: Installing coated headers on an engine during the break-in period will cause discoloration. It is recommended that the factory manifolds or an old set of headers are used while breaking in an engine.

    • Hefty 3/8" flanges
    • Shorty or full-length design
    • Thick wall 14-gauge primary tubes
    • Built to withstand tough applications
    • HTC thermal coating with 5-year warranty
    • Lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects

    68198 - Hedman Hedders Elite Ultra-Duty Headers is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headers at a great price I was looking for great pair of headers for my 66 SS Chevelle 454 roller motor and after reading about the ultra-duty Hedman headers it was a simple decision. I read and compared for days which headers to buy and finally the above headers was my choice. The price from Jegs was the best I could find also...They ship quickly and was surprised after opening the box how well built these headers were.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 67 Chevelle with big block Very nice fit on my 67 Chevelle w/427 BBC. Installed from the bottom up on both sides. Although had some trial error & some scratches later they fit very well & look decent as well. Maybe could have fit 2" primaries but maybe next time. These pack some low-end torque as well I feel like.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fit & Finish Installed headers on 454 big block with AFR 265 aluminum heads on 1967 Chevelle. I can get to all spark plugs, steering cleared without any issues and ground clearance is excellent. Had to put a small depression on one tube on passenger side to clear lower "A" arm. All header tubes polish up nicely for a brighter look. Great value and fitment. Very satisfied.
