Headers fabbing

What do you guys think of this.I need to make som kind of fenderwell headers for my Volvo hotrod.I mentioned this back 6mo ago when I was plotting the car out.There is absolutly no room for headers I had to dimple the frame to get the spark plugs in if thats any indication of space.
Anyway the car came with homemade side exit cast manifolds but I want to fab up some headers for a lil better performance.I definitaly do not have the funds to have a set made as much as I'd like to.
Anyway I'm think of getting a set of block huggers and cutting them at the first bend and flipping them upside down.If I cut the tubes like 1' from the head flange on an angle and weld the tubes back on,the headers should exit the head,come slightly up and exit out the side.I have a freind thats a good welder who could do a real nice stitch.
Waadaaya think??Performance wise how would these perform against a regular block hugger or cast manifold.
