I got a 87 cutlass.Just picked up a 400sbc with aluminum angle plug heads. I think they are pro comp castings.I have a set of hooker comp headers but you cant get to the plugs with these headers.I used these same headers on a set of Edelbrock straight plug heads and headers,work fine.What headers do I need for these heads?

X2 on Schoenfeld. Looked for a long time trying to find some 1 3/4" headers to fit a first gen sb monte. Schoenfeld had just the ticket.

How bad is it? We used a wooden baseball bat and beat our headers. Lol

I have the same headers and AFR angle plug heads. I had to dimple one tube, use a modified box end wrench on a couple of plugs and use NGK plugs that are a little shorter than regular plugs.

The Schoenfelds are great if you don't have a heater or A/C box, you have to use a short oil filter, and there are no street hookups, so some work will be required.
I used slip on tubes and bullet mufflers on mine when it was a street ride.

schoenfeld has some "affordable" g body headers that fit angle plugs..... speedway also offers their version

Same here. Goob made a good point. I got the clamp rings off an old set of headers and welded it to the end of the collector. Then got a set of collector adapters and welded that ring to some 3 1/2 pipe. then bullets after that. Works great.
