    Hedman offers two header styles for street rods. Low-profile Block Huggers are great for accommodating narrow framerails to help eliminate many fit problems you might otherwise encounter with standard headers. The design of Tight Tubes is also for space-limited street rod applications but with Hedman's exclusive 4-into-1 Flat Collector that produces the same horsepower as standard headers.

    Features
  • Works where ordinary headers will not fit.
  • Patented collector design produces more power.
  • Choice of finishes (see below).

    28164 is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heat Resistant Paint Hedman wants you to have their headers sandblasted or stripped of the protective paint and paint them with heat resistant paint. Why doesn't Hedman paint their headers with the heat resistant paint to start with? Furthermore, the 4th of 6 bolts is is virtually under one of the tubes and impossible to get a box wrench on it to tighten. Have to use the open end to get minimal pull on it.
    Date published: 2015-09-08
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not fit I typed in the specific engine and vehicle and jegs pulled up these header so I ordered them. Did not fit around steering gear box. Even beat them down but still wouldn't go. Wasted 300 buck on this deal.
