the thinking now days about headers is not equal length as it wideneds out the torque curve.  the new grand am corvette race cars even have unequal length fuel injection intake stacks for the same reason

I would think a wider torque curve would be desirable, no?
yes it is on a road course

My bad. I misunderstood what you said the first time. I don't know why but for some goofy reason I came away thinking you were saying a broader torque curve was not good.

September '69 ad for Cragar headers



An original set of Cragar headers. They appear to use the same head flange that Hooker did at this time.

I noticed Jere Stahl of Stahl headers has an inventory reduction sale going on. In particular, I
noticed a couple of his #110 road race Camaro headers and the price was dirt cheap if you are
looking for these. It should be noted that the #110 headers sit a full inch higher in the chassis
and won't fit in a Camaro with a stock floor pan. You would have to have a car with the tunnels
in the floor like some of the old Trans-Am cars had. A good deal for somebody with a race car.

Jon,
they also call out for spread port heads..  You can make them work on stock heads with adapters but not intended for that & it could cause some fitment issues with the steering box & steering components.
