They fit good but only thing is they tend to rust like crazy if they are the ones with a silver painted finish. At one time they did not have a complete flange either but they may have changed that since I last looked at them.

I'd go with BBK as they fit well and the finish is much better.

I would offer $200 and I would eventually pay full asking price for them. There are so many higher priced headers out there I always liked mac.

I had the MAC 1 3/4 longtubes on my old 347 setup and they worked just fine. They were not the painted ones though, they may have been stainless. The blue'd over time, but they worked well on my setup.
I've also run BBK 1 3/4 longtubes on my 427 setup and they worked well.

For $200 I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the MAC's.

they are decent for that price range of header, the welds inside the ports need cleaned up, and they warp once they get hot and are sometimes a PIA the reinstall
