I had the Hooker 1 3/4" that had a tube around the frame and didn't care much for them.

Hooker can make a 2" BBC header and get all the tubes inside the frame, but they can't do that with 1 3/4" for a sbc? WTF???

There's gotta be better choices than that. I hear the Shoenfeld's are nice for the money, worth looking into.

I have had 1 5/8" and 1 3/4" Hookers and ABSOLUTELY HATED both of them. I wouldn't recommend those to anyone.
My current Schoenfelds fit pretty good but they clearly state that they will not work with the heater box.

The best fitting set I have ever had and WITH the heater box was a set of $89.99 Hedman headers. For a mainly street car I would gladly go with a set of those again.

i dont know of any fitting angle plug heads and heater box.... i had hooker s/c 1-3/4 with angle plugs, but no heater box..i think the box would be in the way of the tube that goes outside the frame

the shoenfields look like they would fit better there all inside the frame...

This amazes me also! Slimbo5 on Maliburacing sent me pics of his setup. He is using Hedman husslers 65218 and it looks like that might be my only choice.

Now this a question that I have been wondering about the Schoenfeld headers.... they state that they will not clear the "AC box"....... the question I have is will it clear the VERY RARE "heater only box" that came on a few cars? If so, G-Body parts.com has a reproduction "heater only box" available now.

I did a test fit on my 81 Malibu with the heat only box and it looks like it will fit with no problem. When I called Schoenfeld they did say that its a no go with AC but they didnt have an answer on the heater setup. Put a post on maliburacing. You'll have plenty of answers before the nights over.
