    If I was to buy new headres I would get headman husslers.

    I did not know better when I got the super comp's.

    I've used both. The Hedmans were excellent on my 496. When I went to the 572ci I put on a new set of Hookers. They lasted one season and started splitting. Had to repair in three places. Next season had to replace a whole pipe.
    Needed some new collectors. They were only available black heat painted so had to get them recoated.

    the super comps wrap around the frame and I had to slice the collector to bend it away from the power glide on the drivers side ,these headers were coated



    the husslers are in frame,clear the gilde and are 1& 7/8 tube
