looking for the tightest headers

who makes headers that fit the tightest to the block with 2 1/2" collectors? im running ram horn manifolds, and have very little room on the driver side for exhaust so im looking for headers that fit tight like the ram horns. the reason i am wanting to change to headers is that the manifolds are to restrictive and i want a better flowing exhaust system.

thank you,
eddy

299 a pair. the cool thing is they don't use donuts that neck down the output. They use a regular exhaust header flange gasket.
