Patriot Headers

I have a '98 Chevy Vortec motor in a 1949 Chevy PU and am looking for a block hugger type header. Do any of you guys have experience with or know if the Patriot H8019-1 will work with the Vortec motor? It seems that most of the headers I look are made for the oval port type head.

I know nothing of these but here's what you want to look for. 3/8" flanges are good, they'll make a good seal to the head easier to obtain and maintain. The heavier gauge the piping the better. They'll make the headers last longer, especially if the car's a daily driver. And a good ceramic coating is great. It'll not only add greatly to header life, but surface temps will be reduced by roughly 200 degrees, significantly reducing underhood temps. Stainless headers are very good in these respects too.
