    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Solid Header! Bought these for an engine replacement in a '37 Plymouth Coupe. Better plug clearance than existing header. Only drawback is flange holes which are oval shaped. Hoping for round for better flow. But with the included gaskets, there are no leaks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grinding Fitting the headers to Edelbrock aluminum heads on 80 Corvette. Driver side hits the motor mount, grind the motor mount some, still touches, Passenger side had to re-bend the dipstick tube, not a really big deal. Both sides bolt holes don't line up with heads, needed some drilling and grinding to get them to fit.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No clearance I checked the application (66 Bel Air) for these headers before I purchased them. The headers bolt up to the engine fine but that is all. The flange is against the starter, the reducer is an only a couple of inches away from the cross member and idler arm, so no room to attach to exhaust system. Would work for a different application, maybe?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from get ready for lots of modifying, grinding etc headers hit the starter on one side and the motor mount on the other side. mounting holes don't line up to the holes in the heads, had to elongate the holes. Had to grind off some of the exhaust flanges on both sides to clear the block. Not worth the savings over the quality headers.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shorty Headers I haven't installed yet. I bought them to mock up my project and hopefully use them. They appear pretty junky. Lots of excess and sloppy welding material. If they fit my project I'm sure I can clean up the mess and re-weld. Time will tell.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You need a grinder, drill, and a very thick gasket Bolt holes don't line up, had to grind for clearance for the head temperature sensor, had to grind one flange for clearance of the starter, and one for clearance for the motor mount. Then nothing but a very thick head gasket would seal.

    Asked by: madudash
    These are the best option, you will have to verify the fitment.
