    454 truck headers

    For all you guys with a BBC truck OBS 88-98. I will be putting my 496 into my 92 SWB this winter. I am trying to get a idea of header options that are available for this engine. thanks

    Edelbrock makes some nice 1.75" shorties. They are SS and an easy install. They have a 50-state legal version.

    Hooker has some long tubes that fit, but install requires some work and custom exhaust.

    For that engine you should go with Hooker super comp headers they have 2" tubes.

    I wish people were like slinkys, fun to play with but when I get bored I can push them down the stairs.

    Yeah the bigger the primaries are the better. I would also like a 3" collector. Also ground clearance will be a issue.
