I was just test fitting these Schumacher TriYs and they allow room for any starter. Are they as efficient as full length headers? No, but I'm not going to open them up anyway, maybe cutouts. Excuse the lack of valve covers :acme:

Nice fit! They look good too. I may have to big block one of my A bodies. I wouldn't waste my time with cutouts. A 2.5 system with good mufflers and mandrel bends would outflow those headers every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Thanks for adding the pic's thoe headers look sweet! A lot of room for a starter, and the number three plug area seems to have enough room to keep from burning the boot. Nice! Who is the manufacturer?

http://www.engine-swaps.com/Pages/Produ ... aders.html They are made for A bodies but I bet they will fit anything, give them a call. I made a purchase during Carlisle last year and they have a really good show price

Has anyone used Dougs Headers for a 440? Looking to get rid of the manifolds this spring and looking for any advice before or different brands that fit correctly. Looking for something ceramic coated also. Which would work better 2" or 1 7/8 tubes? Thanks in advance.

Should work fine. They fit better than long tube headers but you do loose a little performance

I just put a set on my 400 stroked, 1 7/8" (same for 440), ceramic coated. I also used Stage 8 locking fasteners and Remflex gaskets. IMOP, I wouldn't go with the 2". I've was debating between Doug's and TTi's and went with Doug's. Fit, ease, and overall quality is great. I thought there might be an issue because I have P/S and larger torsion bars. These headers fit with a little space between them and the bars. On Doug's site, they're on back order but Summit had them in stock and I used a discount code for even more savings and free shipping Header R side.jpg Header D side.jpg . I think you would be glad with them.

If you are using long tube headers there is not much you can do other than check that motor mount see if it wore out or raise the car a little. Think about it. Manufacturers want to make a header that fits as many bodies and as many engines as possible. So if you mock them up to fit both the 383 and 440 they need to clear everything with the raised deck 440 but they will hang a little lower on a 383. 3/4 inch makes a big difference

Mine hangs down about two inches lower than the left side
