1955 Headers & 500 CPP Steering Box

I have a 1955 Belair, 350 engine, front motor mounts, belhouseing side mounts, 4 speed transmission with rear tailshaft mount. I am installing a 500 CPP steering box, I am currently running Hooker Competition Headers but I have been told these are not going to work with the new 500 box. I would like to change them anyway because they are showing signs of rusting, second set I have put on for the same reason "RUST". I was thinking of going with the Patriots H 8025-1 Metalic Ceramic Coating, was wondering if anyone knows if this will work. I do not have angle plug heads. I use the stock castiron bellhousing and old-style starter that has been reworked. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The Hookers have a very nice crisp sound with the 280 grind Comp-Cam, I would like to find something comperable that looked and sounded good and would work.
