Real hot rods have headers, full length tube headers. Quality stuff works quite well.

Talking My $.02

Going to try a set of 2010 Camaro manifolds/Pypes exh, out under the bumper.
The avatar car is still around, and has the LS truck manifolds, and a Pypes system. I can do a side by side.
Haven't seen/installed a set, so I guess I'll see what they sound like/perform.
Not sure how they look sans the heat shields. I may have them coated, along w/ the shields, after I check for fit around the 600 box.
At 80, comfort, ease of maintenance, is fast becoming a necessity!

I enjoy the look and performance of a nice set of headers in a TriFive… as long as they're in someone else's car, and I don't have to work on it.

I am running 3/4 headers. They clear the Z bracket for the clutch and rack steering. No problems. these are Doug's header and are ceramic coated.

Milt, you drive them hard?
That's hard to believe....NOT!

Will stop over to the shop, after the holidays, and we can tell some lies, about the "old days" at Dallas.

Default Exhaust

Last week I bought the avatar 57 wgn. It came with full-length headers. Prev owner must have hit some speed bumps. Headers have some flat spots. The 57 has dropped spindles. I may install Sanderson cast iron ceramic coated exhaust. They use two less bolts. They do not require gaskets. Wee bit pricey at $636.99 Any comments as to leaks or quality.
