    Started off with a cheap set of Flow Tech headers that were junk. Spent the money and bought TTI step up headers and they're waaay better. Now I'm thinking of going to the 1 7/8" TTI's but that's a lot of $$$$ to do it

    Yes lots of dough but you have to pay the piper.

    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.

    The headers for an E body fit a whole bunch better that the ones for an A body on an F body even if the A body ones say they will fit an F body.

    If you can get past the price, the Schumacher headers are excellent. The BB one's fit an RB Aspen with absolutely no problems or modifications. Right side drops in from the top, the left from the bottom after removing the steering shaft. I would assume their small block ones are just as good. I got the ceramic coated ones and it was $820 to the door (ouch!) I found they were worth every penny. Just throwing my 2 cents in Oh, and they do not leak with the very thick flanges and the gaskets they sell.
    The BB ones say automatic only unless you convert to a hydraulic clutch. The small block just says automatic only but my guess is it's the same problem with the clutch z-bar and would need a hydraulic clutch also and you need a mini-starter of course.

    They do look nice but I'm not really interested in long tube headers this time. Had tti's on the Volare and hated them.

    Hmmm, I didn't even notice that they exit under the car. The BB ones are different. They exit up higher at an angle.
    The SB ones aren't really long tube technically. Almost looks like the BB ones with sort of an attached head pipe.

    Look what showed up today. We got these A body Doug Headers. I will update the group if they fit. We were more interested in the heavy duty 3/8 flange. Mopar headers leak and we felt by going with a heavy duty flange that exhaust leaks would be a thing of the past. We are prepared to cut them and reweld them if necessary. Hopefully not. Will advise.
