Headers for my 427 caprice

I have 1969 427 caprice, looking for a 2 inch full length header that will fit my car with power steering, with out bashing tubes, any help will be appreciated.

The Chevelle header generally fits a big car as well which isn't as important in a 1969 that left the factory with a BBC as it would be if you had a big block in a later year car or if you had an LS-x motor. The bigger the primary tube (2" isn't all that big for a BBC) the closer the fitment will have to be.

Getting back to answering your question; Headman builds headers to fit your application as does Hooker (caution competition headers have thinner walls which rust faster, and they do not come with a collector flange to bolt up header pipes. They also frequently have pipes that slip fit together for rapid access to motor parts between rounds; so read all of the footnotes at the bottom of the page). I would also check out Doug's website for a set.

I believe that you will find that Hooker headers are common to Camaro, not Chevelle. I have Hooker 2457 ceramic. They are 2" primary. I have factory A/C and PS and nothing hits anywhere.

I also use Hooker/Jet Hot 2457 with no problems, and they have collector flanges.
