    Hello Guys

    Currently owner of a 1975 Dodge Dart SE 2doors Hardtop !

    Engine is a 1970 Dodge Demon 340 4BBL, the headers that are now on is the long tube ones and they are wasted from hitting the ground too much even if I lift up the front !

    So those were installed and destroyed not long after because of the ground clearance..

    My question is, ive searched the net, read couple of forum's and im planning to get the Shorty's Header's from Heddman since the Long one will get destroyed again or if you think Dougg's or TTI ones have a different design ? I know that the Shorty's Header's will need some fitment at the collector attachment, people say that you need to give it more angle to clear steering arm ?

    Thank you for taking the time to complete a refresh of my old Mopar !

    **EDITED because of Apostrophe abuse

      Doug's are not bad... I helped install a set in a 69 Dart and they don't hang down...

      Wait for a sale to get a good price on them...

            Autozone ha's 20% off s'ale's s'ometime's, and S'ummit's ha's price matche's.

            See how fucked up apostrophes are? Autocorrect messes everything up.

              TTi's Long tube ? The budget will not be a problem.. but for sure I will search for a discount on different site ! Im looking for something that will last and wont be a problem for the ground clearance, im not looking for a 4x4 height just for shinny headers !

              By that I mean that I will pay for TTi's expecting the design and curve will match my car and needs, looking forward for TTi 340A-C4 !

              Thank you for being nice still :thumbsup:

              TTI and Dougs makes longtubes that dont hang low.
              Hedman shortys has a screwed up collectorslocation/angle but except for that they seem to be fine.
              TTI makes shortys aswell.
              Sandersson makes shortys,but seem to have some isues with their partnumbering to figure out,but once they figure that part out they may be on to something good.
              Schumacher offer a tri-Y header for smallblocks that looks real nice but i have not seen much else about those.

                Maybe I got a bad set, but I have a set of Hedmanns that have only a few hours on them and they split at the collector where the primaries come together. I called Hedmann today and they said they will replace them but I'm not sure I want to go through the trouble to have it happen again. IF it was my fault, I'm wondering if I didn't have enough flexibility in the exhaust system or my mixture is lean..but with them being basically brand new? I don't know. Just putting my experience out there for consideration or to see if someone had the same happen to them. Not happy.
