Header Recommendation

I'm looking for shorty headers for the 1972 Pontiac 350 that's going to go into the LeGTO. 455 is dead in the garage with a hole in the water jacket. Does anyone have the scoop on shorty headers> Summit was no help. 1982 & newer.
TIA!

Scott

Hole in 455 Block

Passenger side 2" behind the last freeze plug.This is a common rust thru area, I am told. The guy I bought it from hogged out the hole, trowelled epoxy into the hole & painted it over with Pontiac rattlecan blue. Block is unsalvageable.

UN-FRICKEN REAL !!!! Did the piece of garbage show any remorse or offer a refund for screwing you ???

Sorry, no help on shorty headers, I always use long tubes.

Headers...

Seller said he had no idea it was there and it could have failed while he owned it as well. "Sorry.....nothing I can do. I feel really bad". Yeah. I'm sure my $10K soothes his bad feelings.
