    for all 1st gen v8 conversions

    Im going to be purchasing a 85 2 dr and start my v8 conversion. What is the best longtube header to use? Im thinking about different headers but would like help narrowing it down.. Any input would be appreciated. fenderwells are out because i want to use a lowering spindle. The search continues. pic added

    Why would you have to take out the fenderwells to put on a drop spindle?

    Headman makes long tubes, and I believe hooker does too..both are somewhat pricey.

    fenderwell exit headers are out, i was going to look into them but all that i have seen say that they cant be used with a lowering spindle. Looking for a header with at least a 1 3/4 inch primary and a 3.0 to 3.5 inch collector

    I have a set of Sanderson 1 3/4s I will sell you. They are the short ones but they are very nice. 5/16ths flanges..no header gasket...

    My buddy has Sanderson full length on his. They are in 3 pieces on the pass. side. Last month he had to change his starter, and found out why they are in 3 pieces. Take off 1 piece...viola, access to your starter.
