65 LS engine swap headers

LS engine swap on 65 looking for ceramic coated long tube headers.
Any suggested headers?

Re: 65 LS engine swap headers

My Hooker Blackheart LS headers fit my 70 El Camino perfectly but they are not ceramic coated. But it should be easy to get them coated.

Re: 65 LS engine swap headers

I also used Hooker Blackheart LS swap headers on my 65. Used their engine mounts as well. Fit great! Not coated though.

Check out the Pro Touring section here on Team Chevelle, several build threads for 65 Chevelles going.... including mine.

Re: 65 LS engine swap headers

My hedmans are nice but you have to put the engine ALL the way back to the firewall so they clear the cross member. Had to change out to a tahoe hydroboost setup as coils would not clear a vacuum booster.
