    All Budget Headers are NOT Created Equal!
    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 breathe, 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 plus 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
  • Gaskets and bolts included (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)

    2458 - Hooker Headers Competition Headers Chevy/GM Car is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fitment Bought these for a 57 Bel Air with a 350 and a 4 speed. The fitment is MINT. Everything clears and has room. Spark plug boots don’t touch anywhere. Get some VHT header paint and you’re good to go! As far as headers go, this is a win. Especially after the horror stories you hear about having to beat headers with a hammer to make them fit. Tightening the spark plugs was interesting though. Used ingenuity by taking a spark plug socket and tightening with an open end wrench. Correct way? Probably not, but it worked.
