not sure if there is a question in your post,but hey,,,nice.The last time I saw really nice custom headers was a 63 valiant with a 427 chevy. Steering clearance was an issue.

just a build

no question yet.The steering is an issue with #7 pipe but the welder is going to do his best to get around that but I am close to it.I just tacked the pipes together.

The hard part is the slip tube and the collectors getting them all tacked up.

The real pain is the passenger side exit,this is tubes 8/6 but I can't get them to turn and clear the wheel.

I am going to be making mor hp[1200]and I needed bigger headers than the 2" hookers I had and I am very tired of the headers crowding the starter,burning the trans blanket...These pipes are 2.250 and my old headers are 22yrs old.

Too bad a set of tri Y's like schumacher has didn't come in a bigger tube size.
Your Car looks familiar.
Saw it on a video somewhere! Bangshift maybe.

shorten length

I wanted to make equal length on my 1st try making headers and I have enough to do a set of zoomies as a back up plan.My tubes are 28" on the driver side coming into the wheel well.I tried an exh calc on wallaceracing and got 31.8" length I should use.I have to add the collector into the length so I will be close.

You plan to move that brake line on the passenger side? A lot of heat coming off the headers.

Those look nice, very similar to headers Camaroman7 had custom made for his pro street Skylark from Lemons, with some of the tubes wrapped around the frame rail, a work of art.
