I'm looking for a set of headers to fit the 350 in my toy, probably going to have to be block huggers to fit. Any recommendations on where I should be looking to buy them from and models that may fit? Any shops in the lower mainland or the outskirts would be much appreciated.. or sites if it comes to that

rams horn manifolds work good and troublefree

Also recommend buying flowtech header gaskets they are multiple metal gaskets and reusable I think I paid like $60 which is steep but u shouldn't have to replace them ever

fix the running isues and dont waste money on headers
not enough gains to make it worth while
and headers will increase under hood temp
do the fuel injection instead

I was planning to do both. The current exhaust manifolds are from a different engine and don't fit properly, also with the cherrybombs stopping right under my cab I'm constantly flooding my cab with exhaust fumes and feeling pretty nauseous. I figured if I had to change the exhaust manifolds and put new pipes on anyways, then I might aswell put on some headers. I will also be fuel injecting the truck in the next few weeks before I touch the exhaust/headers.

keep the manifolds and put a proper exhaust on it
cheep headers only last a year or two
blow gaskets constantly due to the flange not being thick enough
as b said spend the money where it counts

fair enough, well fuel injection is definitely top of the list. I thought the leak from the manifolds not fitting right will cause a significant loss in back pressure and fumes under the hood that flood the cab through the holes under the dash..

anything that causes a loss in backpressure is a good thing though I doubt a leak is gonna do that :)

new manifolds can be found cheap
