    All Budget Headers are NOT Created Equally!
    Hooker's Competition Series Headers come in your choice of finishes and are engineered to perform at a reasonable price! To let your engine really breath Hooker utilized 16 gauge (.049'' thick) steel tubing attached to long transition style collectors! Giving you a serious increase in flow over other brand headers without a loss in the backpressure most engines need to perform! After years of testing, Hooker has discovered that a machined 5/16'' header flange offers enough flex to hold the gasket tight to each exhaust port, and enough rigidity to keep everything properly tied together.


    Features:
  • Mandrel-bent tuned-length tubing for smooth exhaust flow and power
  • Sturdy 16 gauge steel tubing
  • Perfect seal 5/16'' machined header flanges
  • Long transition collector for improved power over standard headers
  • Comes with gaskets and bolts Reducers sold separately.
  • Available in five finishes to suit your needs (see listings below for product availability) -

    Black Painted (Part numbers do not have a suffix)

    Metallic Ceramic Coating (Part numbers have a -1 suffix)

    Stainless Steel (Part numbers have a -2 suffix)

    "Darksides" Black Ceramic Coating (Part numbers have a -3 suffix)

    Titanium Ceramic Coating (Part numbers have a -4 suffix)

  • 2454 - Hooker Headers Competition Headers Chevy/GM Truck is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what it says it is. I love the headers they make my truck sound awesome. I just wish y'all would send some stickers with the shipment.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so Satisfied Wanted a set of not so expensive headers but didn’t want the EBay cheap stuff so I went with Hooker and their years of experience and reputation. Tried to bolt them on my motor on the stand and the bolt holes would not even align due to the header flange hitting the head bolts (stock bolts). After installing motor using correct BBC mounts and stands the nightmare continued. After beating on my new headers and about two hours worth of grinding on chassis and control arms they finally cleared. I’ve been building cars for 30 years and have used Hooker headers many times with success. They missed on this one, simply adding an inch on the drop and a little more sweep they would of fit perfect, the sad part is it’s a C10 truck there’s plenty of room to do that. I would of been better off with el cheapo’s off EBay!
