Cheapest 75' Monte Carlo headers?

I saved another Monte Carlo from the Junkyard...Its a 75' Model with swivel bucket seats and its in very good condition besides the floorpans which are no match for me and my plasma & welder. It was minus engine & trans for $500 and the car is straight as a pin.

I have a engine & trans brand new 355 and a nice TH350. The manifolds I had laying around leftover from my 95' Z28 Camaro was what I was expecting to use...Suprise suprise..They dont bolt up. So I need to come up with a set of headers.
I have spent right at my limit for this car project and dont really have much if any money to spare on headers.

Who has the cheapest regular old SBC headers? I might even try to buy used...But I need something and I didn't expect to have to buy anything more.

I already bought:

New motor & trans
New Radiator
" Starter
" hoses
" Distributor
" Belts
" Water pump
" fuel lines
" Fan
" Shroud
" Battery cables & Battery
" Paint & sandpaper

What I used that was laying around:

Nice 14" Cragar Peanut Slot wheels with RWL Tires
Intake & Carb
Trim & sheetmetal for rust repair
Exhaust I had laying around
Stereo
Nuts bolts Hardware and etc.

This should be a fun ride. I have alot less in the new motor & trans than people would expect. I traded mostly for it (Old Pontiac parts) But this is the second 73-75 Monte I own now. Along with my 69' Bird and 70' Truck.


I have a cousin of a friend who wants this car bad. And I could use the money but I gotta get it done...Headers are the biggest thing I need still.

Jeg's or Summit's in-house brand. Friend just bought a set from Jeg's(I think) at $84.95. Fit was perfect, 1 5/8" primary x 3" collector.

That sounds pretty good, But is there a place like Summit or Jegs not in Ohio? I dont mind paying a little shipping but living here in Ohio I get hit with both Sales Tax and shipping and that sucks.

I pay enough taxes as it is. I guess the next time I drive up near Columbus I could pick them up in person and only pay the tax...But that might be a few weeks (make work pay for the fuel)

I ended up finding a set of Flowtech headers at "Autozone" of all places. They were brand new in a beat up looking box full of cobwebs and spiders. For $114 I got them....With no shipping or large amount of fuel spent or anything.

When I called the guys ran the info through the computer and were shocked...They didnt even know they had them. I guess they were high on a shelf or something.

I checked and by the time I factored in fuel, shipping, taxes and all other factors I couldn't have really done any better on price. (My local Autozone is only about 1.5 miles away)


Now most of the time I love bashing Autozone because well, Generally they suck. Just yesterday a friend bought a "Duralast" headlight switch that was garbage right out of the box.
So I will just consider this find lucky. I know its probrably the last set of headers this store will ever have. That was the managers attitude, He basically said they were not getting restocked.

Both of my Monte's can be seen on www.hubgarage.com under the Heading "Turbo Monte Garage" Its a pretty awesome car & garage website.


The black Monte is the Turbo Car the Green Monte is the $500 JY find. The green car is now running and purrs like a kitten. I am going to fix the body and floors and paint the car a Sublime Green since it has a Light Green interior I figured it would look sweet with all the chrome!
