Replacing the headers on my 72 Nova

Ive done some research on headers and i know there are ton of them out there. I have headers on it right now, dont know the make or model. They came with the car when i bought it over 10 years ago but i want to replace them. It had smog on it when i got it, i pulled that off right away and plugged the holes in the headers. Anyway the guy who put them on had to dent them to make them fit past the steering unit. Anybody have a 72 nova or something like it that they put headers on that i dont have to dent one of the tubes? I was looking at Thorley headers and a few other makes that have the tri Y. Do those make more torque? Im running a 383 in my nova and i am going to put 3.73. posi in soon as well... thanks

i have a 72' nova that i bought with a cheap set of headers on it and a 350 and someone had dented the second tude for the plugs.that just drives me nuts.people spend real money for something only to start wacking on it with a hammer.mines torn apart in the garage under resto. but i don't recall any probles with the steering unit.you will have to buy headers for a 67-69 camaro.everything under the hood of of both cars interchange.

Several guys at www.camaros.net (a '67-'69 Camaro site) who have Thorley Tri-y's say they fit great & have good ground clearance.

Thanks guys...Ya i was thinking about getting those, pretty pricey though. Im running a 383 would putting the TRI-Y headers on there produce more torque? Im thinking i would want to produce more top end power? or what are the advantages/disadvantages of running the TRI-Y's. Also i have straight pipes going to Flowmasters, should i put an H pipe in there or a X what do these do? thanks
