Best header for fitment on SBC in 85 K20

Looking for advise on what is the best header yall have used to replace old junky busted manifolds. Fairly stock 85 K20 with a simple 350 4bbl with junky busted up manifolds. I'm going to run all new dual exhaust and want to find the best fitting headers. Don't have to be ceramic coated or anything super fancy,prefer a shorter style so they don't hang real low under the truck. I know how some are so tight to the spark plugs it causes all sorts of issues and cussing fits and I'd like to avoid that. What say you!?

Re: Best header for fitment on SBC in 85 K20

there was a list of what hit and what fit years ago i dont know were it went . but lots of headers tend to come super close or rub the shackles for the front leaf springs . so do a good bit of searching and make sure you can return easy if they dont fit .

Holy crap! 800 bucks? I like my Hedman Elite's but I wouldn't pay that much for them. Summit must have them cheaper. If Hedman's are out of reach I would look at ebay headers.

Re: Best header for fitment on SBC in 85 K20

My mistake Al!
I shouldn’t have used that link to show an example of the headers I had. I should have known someone would come along and complain about the price, the color or whether it had all the accessories or it was for a Chevy or a ford or a Datsun!
I should have spent several hours looking for a better link.
I’ll know better next time!
