Summit Racing Headers

I would go with the Summit Racing SUM-G9001-9 - Summit Racing® Headers - Overview - SummitRacing.com for the price. You think it would be wise to get some of the ceramic polish under suggested parts and give them a nice coat before installation? I never had a set of ceramic coated headers yet. I have a set of Patriot's Ceramic coated on my 1967 Camaro 454 but haven't started it since being rebuilt. It's being painted and you know how long that takes!!

A complete A.I.R setup can be worth some money these days, so if you are absolutely positive you'll never want to restore the car...ca$h in!

I wonder if shoenfeld makes headers that will fit your application. A lot of dirt track cars use the 70s era Chevelle suspension. They are an extremely high quality company to do business with and their prices are incredible for the quality of the product that you receive. While they don't have the cache' of HOOKER; I'd say that their quality and customer service is as good if not better, however their catalog is somewhat limited for street cars so don't be too disappointed if they cant help. X2 on Swain Coatings. If you're an East coast guy; Mad Scientist Coatings (part of Dyno Port) in Upstate NY is good to do business with. When we were racing snowmobiles, they did a lot of exhaust work for us.

There may be another option. Hedman used to sell AIR adaptors for headers. It was a small manifold that your AIR check valves screwed into, and then four "legs" of tubing splayed out, with their ends pitched correctly for SBC exhaust spacing. You drill a hole in each primary tube, insert the AIR manifold, weld it in place, and -- just like that a set of headers all set up for AIR systems.

Dunno if they're still out there.

When you pull up the page that gives you all the info it has a Header bar that starts off with Overview,Application,Required Parts, Suggested Parts, Related Kit /Combos, and Repair Parts. Clicking on suggested parts the first item is Car Chemistry Cerma-Glow Metallic Ceramic Header Polish.
Just wondering if it's a good idea to polish them before putting in use.
