Nelson racing engines has a nice set of turbo headers. Not cheap. But quality is'nt cheap.

Up and forward, or down and forward designs.

I basically made my own out of mild steel for my SBC camaro for a couple hundred bucks. Basically same design and easy to do.

If the headers are that much, its not quality you are paying for, its his name.

Regarding the Stainless Works turbo headers. Ive spoken directly with Billy from Stainless Works and he told me that their BBC up/forward turbo headers WILL NOT fit in a Chevelle.

I was told they would hit the steering shaft. Maybe on a tall deck the exhaust ports would be moved upwards enough to clear? Looking forward to seeing it.
