    From my experience, they all suck. I would look into church boys racing. They primarily sale nova/Chevy 2 stuff, but they have camaro headers

    I have some new dynatechs of your interested. Think my ad fell of the active listings. Mocked the up and compared to my sbc w/hooker long tubes looked about the same. The SW do tuck a little closer.

    I experiment a lot.
    First I used the 1-3/4" Edelbrock headers which were just fine. But they are no longer made.
    Currently I have the 1-7/8" Hooker headers which are very nice, but only fit with their special side-offset Hooker swap mounts.
    In the near future I plan to try the Stainless Steel Works headers.

    BTW - I'd be happy to sell my Edelbrock headers for the price of shipping and a few bucks for the hassle. Includes the pipes after the headers with O2 bungs. (Update: SOLD)
