Building a Street Stock with 78-85 Impala / Le Sabre type frame. SBC engine set back will be to #1 plug in-line with upper ball joints. Headers must go under frame. Neither Dynatech nor Schoefeld tech people can tell me which style header to run. If it's not a Camaro or Monte, they don't know. I know the size and collector sizes I need. Any suggestions on the style of header? I can't do a lot of modifications to the headers. I'm looking for something to bolt on. Any help would be appreciated, especially from those using the same frame in a street stock format.

have you tried to see if a set of the monte ones would fit ? i would think they should work no problem beings your frame is wider

No, I have not tried anything! I'm moving up in class from cast exhaust manifolds and have no headers to borrow. I know I can buy them and then take them back if they don't work, but I'd rather find someone that knows what will work, so I can buy and get on with it. I'd like the headers bolted to the block when I set the engine set-back and engine height so I don't have any surprises later.
