Thought I'd post some photos of different Mopar Big Block driver's side headers that I have. They are Hooker Competition (black painted), Doug D451 (383/400) and TTI 1 7/8" ceramic coated. By the way, the foot in the one photo belongs to Heminut!
Notice that cylinder number one tube goes into a different spot of the collector on all three headers. And notice the difference in lengths of tubes and overall header length. The TTI is the sleekest one of the three. Of course the TTI headers cost the most too!

Which one are you using? Been seriously considering buying another set of TTI's for my convert.... They were great on my hardtop car....

I'm going to use them all. Seriously, if I generate enough interest in this post, I'm thinking of installing all three pair of headers in my rolling shell 71Barracuda and taking tons of pictures for fit up. Currently the Barracuda has a stock power steering box and I was thinking of using all three headers with that. Then switch to my Borgerson power steering box and doing a fit up of all three again. That would give us on this forum a lot of big block header information!

Boy, you're a glutton for punishment, but thanks for helping others by doing this!

Boy do I remember back in the 70s laying on my back and installing headers in my 442 cars and cussing every minute.

Being retired and in my 50's helps! The biggest issue is switching from a RB (413) for the TTI and Hooker headers to B (383) for the Doug headers.

Over the years I have had multiple brands of headers..
But without a doubt the best quality
The best ones were from TTi....
They fit the best, great build quality....
Just be sure that the engine and its mounts are in good shape not sagging..

Just my $0.02... ;)

I'll be using brand new mounts. My guy tells me the TTI and Doug D451 will fit with little to no problems. The Hookers are going to be a little tougher. I wish I had multiple E-Body shells instead of just one. And a 4-spd besides just a 727. But it still should make interesting documentation! If only it wasn't averaging 105°F for the highs here!
