    The SB ones aren't really long tube technically. Almost looks like the BB ones with sort of an attached head pipe.
    I had the tri-y's on my 440 and they did good.

    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.
    Yes, please let us know. I hope they fit fine.

    The Schumachers have 3/8" flanges also and absolutely do NOT leak.

    Why aren't the pictures showing the left side header for the small block.

    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.
    my shortys are hedmanns,i was able to go above the steering linkage,but I got some crazy bends in the tubes

    All A body headers I have ever used since the early 70's go under the steering linkage on the left side and they sit very low. I hate that. They scrape and get smashed half flat. Just my opinion but in my case there is nothing that can beat a set of TTI's. I have 1 7/8" tubes and they fit fantastic on the F body above the steering linkage but you do have to run a mini starter.

    77 spitfire, Old post, but I was wondering how the D453 Dougs fit.

    I have TTI's on my Aspen wagon and they are the same as E-body headers. Passenger side A, E & F TTI headers are all the same. A-body driver's side are different because #7 tube is separate and goes out and around the frame rail. F-body engine bay size and distance between frame rails is more than an A-body and with no torsion bars to worry about, installation & clearance is better.

    TTI also eliminate the need for a 90* oil filter adapter and clear Milodon 8 qt. oil pans. They also have more HP potential than 1 5/8" Dougs because TTI is stepped 1 5/8"-1 3/4".
