Both of my hedman headers cracked two primaries.
Hedman doesn't appear to be making these again anytime soon so I'm not even bothering with their supposed lifetime warranty against cracking.

I purchased a set of summit block huggers from a member at tsf a little while back.
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G9064-1/

Installed them this week. Much more solid feel to them with 16g primaries instead of hedman's 18g.

The drivers side fit with inches to spare. The passenger side required some minor frame notching. Theres a hump in the frame where the merge is and they try to occupy the same space unsuccessfully.

Had to rework my y-pipe a bit as well since the collectors weren't in the same locations.

And those worked for you aside from the frame notching. I guess I'll order these right now aswell. No problem with them being designed to work with LA style engines?

Check out ironman4x4fab. My track bar is crazy beefy and now he's making them with Johnny joints instead of bushings.
