Looking for stainless steel Camaro BBC headers

Hi all,
I am looking for a pair of stainless steel Headers for my 1979 Camaro with a 454 BBC inside. The main problem is, that I am from Germany and so I have to order from a big company that will ship to me.

At Summit-Racing I could only find a few headers what are ceramic coated. Do you know a producer and a type or typenumber for those headers. Best would be a link or so.

Here in Germany I found some of a Corvette C3. But I'm not sure that they will fit

Thank you...Daniel

These guys make top quality Headers (in Stainless)-they only have a Race Header for your Car available, but they will custom make about anything-

Hi 327nut,
is think that stainless is better for a longer time. My normal painted steel headers looks like a rusty piece of waste after 2 years. And I want to buy a good product. The ceramic is like a painjob on the (in some time rusting) steel. Or do you have other experience? Ceramic better than stainless because of the heating factor?

Please clarify...Daniel

I will agree that a set of polished SS headers are very beautiful....for a while but they give off an extreme amount of heat and burn up plug wires . The ceramic coating is much more than a paint job, it is a chemical process that coats both the inside and outside (on quality headers) and cuts the heat factor down in your engine bay dramatically. I've seen ceramic coated headers that still look like new after many years of use.
