I have a set of DynaMax from Summit (not Dynatech). With the engine set back four inches I got better fit than the Schoenfeld headers that I used to have. The reason I changed, I crushed the Schoenfelds backing off trailer. They may not be better but DynaMax war fifty dollars cheaper.

My engine is located in the stock position and I'm really nervous about finding a set of headers that will fit. I've heard too many horror stories about having to "tweak" them into place. It's an '82 metric monte with a '71 350 mounted in stock position. Any thoughts?

88-95 chevy truck 350/305 smog legal shorty headers,no air injection,got the from northern for $199,prob not the best performance wise but way better than a manifold and they fit perfect cause they are made to fit the factory truck y pipe, i have a metric with lots of 2x3 tube underneath and a firwall in the way so i could not use reg headers or crossovers without a lot of work
