But I need some advise(with part numbers) of some budget headers that will fit my car. Full length may be best but is there such a beast. ALSO, I'm in Canada, so my budget takes a real kick in the teeth with exchange rates.
Thanks again.

With these tri-fives and bb's all these types of items are going to be hit and miss, they mat fit fine or need a little work to made to fit. It's what makes being a gearhead. Just trying to help.

The reviews basically say "well built, don't fit" 😳
Do you know the part number on your patriots?

https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Patri...aw,301859.html They come in coated also, unless it's cheaper to have that done up where you are. I can not vouch for fit.

They used to and maybe do still sell a cheaper set but I had to do a lot of hammering to make them fit.

Replies that don't always help are normal for most any online forum like this. Don't get all upset over it. People like to talk.

Try Patriot Headers for being cost effective. Contact Mopac in Western Canada for the best price..pretty hard to beat them VS importing from a USA dealer. As stated there are a lot of variables when putting a Big Block in a TriFive so there is no 100% guaranteed fit with any of the discount brands in your budget. You may have to dent a tube to get around a steering box.

If you had a v8 in there, you must have the 487 pitman arm.
