New Headers in AZ

There seem to be a lot of users here from AZ, I'm personally from Mesa, AZ. Anyway, my '66 goat needs some new headers and I'm trying to find a local shop some of you may have used or fellows that you could possibly recommend for me. Thanks.

I don't know if they instal headers, but Mesa Mufflers does good exhaust work on older cars.

For the sweet sound of power,

Thanks for the reply. I've only lived here for 3 months, so just trying to find all the good shops and places to go locally. I'll check them out. I've also had Musselman's recommended to me by an associate. Believe they are east of the 101 on Main. So I'll check these two out! If anyone else has other recommendations specifically for installing new headers, please post! Thanks!

I put a set of Hooker Competition Ceramic coated headers on my 67 before I reassembled the front clip. I dropped the starter, removed the motor mount bolts and used my engine hoist to raise the engine. 2 of the header bolt holes will need to be modified for proper fit.

I found the headers at Summit Racing

Year One also has Hooker Headers for about the same price, I purchased a set of Hedman headers and did not like the 3 tube design so I sent those back.

Why did you have to modify the bolt holes on the header? Did they not line up or something? What tools/equipment did you have to use to modify them?
Thx.

Oh and what Hedman headers were they?

The bolt hole for cylinder 5 was out of allignment, when Hooker welded the tube to the backing plate the weld filled in the hole. I used a dremel and removed the weld.

Here is a link with Hedman headers, the top listing is the one I ordered and sent back with the 3 tube design.

I have used Wades Discount Muffler on Main St. for years - he has done all my company trucks - does great work.

He also did the muffler delete on my 90 GT years ago.

Good luck
