    The Headers sticky Thread

    Does the Doug D453 headers fit a volare/ aspen?

    I was wondering if anyone has used Doug D453 headers on their F body? I already have TTI headers and they fit well but I was wondering if they would be a cheaper alternative.

    I moved and renamed this so we could start a brand new headers thread where all can commit on what works for headers on a F Body.

    ok great, thanks BTW, Dougs doesn`t show the header listing for a F body. I emailed them and I`ll post what they say.

    What brand did you use, any issues with the steering linkage?
    Just read this comment on Headman's Tight Tube Headers (78500):

    Excellent fit on a '77 Aspen (F-Body) R/T w/ power steering. You have to use a mini-starter. Just ordered another set for an '80 Mirada.


    There's a thread on these over at FABO but while the headers themselves seem to be an easy fit most people had to go under the steering linkage which totally ruins the ground clearance advantage.

    I don`t how well the shorty headers fit on a volare.. On the full length dougs I received a answer and they said "
    We have nothing for the Volare application in our brands. Good luck on the search. "
