Hello miller 275✌️ I have 57 wagon installing big-block Chevy. I am also curious on those stainless shorty exhaust headers that claim to fit a early Chevelle. I am not using any particular manufactured motor mounts at this time. Going to try those Stainless Headers 1st and move my engine until they fit. Afterwards making my motor mounts to fit. Wondering if you can give me any update if you had any experience with those type headers on your tri-five car? BTW, miller 275,I live very close to you in Calhoun

Are you putting this engine in a TriFive or Chevelle?

I used these with a little dinging and some clever cutting and welding. I can provide details if anyone is interested.

Speaking of filters, get rid of that FRAM filter. They are absolute junk!!. Watch the YouTube video that compares the top 4 or 5 filters. Once you see it cut open, you'll see what I mean.

I and putting those mid-length Stainless Headers on my 57 Chevy. I recently got them installed. They are for a Camaro / nova application. With a few spots on three tubes hammered in, and Shifting the engine about an inch toward the passenger side, they fit my 57 Chevy framing with big block 454
