BRP sells these ceramic-coated Hedman Hedders, which are designed for '73-'87 Chevy C10s with LS-series engines. The 1-7/8-inch primary tubes and 3-inch collectors were a good match for our mild powerplant.

The engine won't really torque to that side under acceleration enough for the header to touch the 'rail.
