After getting a Blueprint 383 in November. Going thru alot of full length headers that are hitting the floor before back bolt is installed. What headers is anybody using? Competition engineering sub frame bushings are in, frame is tied, motor mounts are correct. Summit headers are on top, Jegs are on the bottom. Just a few full length that hit floor, Hooker 2451 hit also. Thanks for any help

I'm using these:


Fit is fantastic, but nobody can say for sure if they will clear your floor, so many variables. I can just say they work for my 70 SBC, angle plug, Competition Engineering stock height poly body and motor mounts.

These fit like a glove in my '73, with and without .250" raised exhaust ports...

They fit my 78 Camaro also no issues

I have Hedman 65104, 1 3/4" long tube headers. If you have a/c, it's a real tight fit on the a/c box.

What he said^ my non-coated 2217's work well and fir perfect also. I have used the universal SBC headers like the OP listed and they fit fine also. They worked so good I ran 10'90's with them and the Hookers for all that they charge made no more power.

I went w/ Doug's -

D324-B​

Too cheap to get the coated. lol. The passenger side was tight to the floor. I have a BP 396 - I think you gotta remember that most of these aluminum heads have the header location raised, like .5inch. I am happy w/ the Doug's - that brand is kinda my go to.
