    Hi, I will be swapping a 5.3L Vortec into my 79 z28. After looking around I couldn't find anyone selling headers that specified they fit F bodies. Does anyone know where you could get any?

    They're a little pricey (most of them are) but Ultimate Headers has built the nicest, most tightly built pieces (Longtubes and midlengths) I've seen on the LS swapped 2nd gens. I've used several sets at our shop and they're fantastic.

    I used Hedman mid length on my swap, they were pretty cost effective a few years ago, mine are ceramic coated.
