Camaro Firebird & Nova Steeroids Header Clearance

Camaro, Firebird & Nova Exhaust and Header Clearances

The following is a list of headers that our customers have told us have worked for them. Our systems are not limited to these headers by any means, but you can use them as a routing style reference for your own headers. It is the routing style that is important, not the name brand. You can look these up to see if yours have similar routing styles. If it says a dimple may be required, look at the bottom of this page for more info about dimpling headers.
