I need headers too and will look into the TTI. Apparently I may have BB headers ( i don't know what BB is). I'll have to inspect them closer.

To add to this thread though, what finish on the TTI are holding up best for you guys?

BB is big block; anyway, I have Headman headers, the ones with the 3/8 thick flange. They fit ok, without dimples, but are really close to the mini starter and torsion bar.

I have the polished, ceramic coated with the thermal barrier. Cooler under hood temps and excellent corrosion resistance. Excellent fit, workmanship. ease of plug changing and wire clearance. No down side to me. I believe in the old saying that " Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten" My car is worth it to me...

I have used many different headers on E bodies, I currently have a set of Schumacher tri-Y on my 440 Challenger and they are great, problem is that Schumacher is no longer in business. I have TTI on my Cuda (small block) and as has already been said, I have never seen any headers fit as well as TTI. I have seen them on BB cars and they fit exceptionally well there as well. Others might fit well but I have not seen it.

Agree, TTI is the easiest fitting I’ve dealt with on BB. I’m using ceramic coating with thermal barrier as some others here. No complaints.

I received my new TTI headers and i'm getting ready to install them. Just had a couple questions for the brain trust before I get going.

I previously learned the hard way that coolant comes out the header bolts. Do all the header bolts need sealant or just the ones closest to firewall?

Other than cleaning off the block surface, anything else I should do or consider addressing while the headers are off?

Thanks!

Small block only the 2 end holes go into the coolant ,
Big block all 6 go into the coolant .

The front and rear holes are open to the coolant jacket. But I had one of the others that also leaked coolant so to be sure, put thread sealant on all of them.
