Hey I was looking for some more info on some headers for my L6 250. I have a 66 with a 3 speed manual trans and I have some Q's What mods would I have to make if any? I have seen two kinds of headers for the 250 from clifford, one is a 2 piece design and the other is one piece, the one piece looks like the stock exaust manifold almost, it collects into one and the other version collects into two (i mean at the ends where your doughnut gaskets would go). If you have ither set up some info would be awesoume. If you are running some other headers (headman dynomax ) let me know what you think of them. Also part #s and or links would be good . I looked in the archives and couldnt find a solid answer so maybe we can solve the mystery. The reason that i need to know id that the exhaust manifold on my engine is cracked, I have an old one that I could sandblast and use but i would like to have some headers instead any info would be great thanx Shorty

oh yeah i also need to know if i should use the car or truck headers and how will the stock intake stay on withoul the old exaust manifold. Would you have to run spacers from the intake bolts to also hold down the headers? thanx Shorty

Hey Dan,

Just a tad tardy on a reply..... http://www.vcvc.org/ubb/biggrin.gif

To answer your ?, no. Still have stock intake & exhaust.

Think if I went the header route, would use the 2 piece shortys from Clifford.

Then of course, you might as well get the intake, cam kit, ect....

Shorty,

Like any other internal combustion engine, for winter (cool) weather, the intake gases should be heated. I imagine that in the warmer south & west climates, you can make the change without compromise.

Just my view... Might be incorrect...

My thoughts on headers on a L6 is that without doing a lot of engine work, your imporovements in performance will be minimal. For performance,I say go with the V8. My last van had a bone stock 250 and and all I had do do was change the points and plugs and oil here and there. I never had to worry about that engine, it was bullet-proof. I spend my time and money on the inside and outside of the van and always knew that I could rely on that engine and drivetrain to get me where I wanted to go. Just my thoughts.

Shorty, sorry for the confussion, I as thinking you needed an intake manifold. I see if I can find an exhaust manifold. Something to get you running, at least.

Hey thanx greg i called clifford and they said that they should fit no problem. They make them specifically for early chevys and they said that they would clear the crossmember. They are $289 and are powdercoated, he said that you will need some spacers to hold them on sence the intake and exhaust manifolds are held on with the same bolts. I am going to order them on friday. If anyone has some installation tips dont be afraid to post. thanx guys Shorty
