Header question

I currently have an 85 cj7 with the 258. It currently has some kind of header on it that leaks. I was just wondering what company makes the best headers at a reasonable price.
Also, does anyone know where you can buy different speedometer gears? The jeep has 35s with 4.56 gears in it and it would be nice to get the speedo to be accurate.

I've always used hedman headers, they have a nice thick flange and I havent had any leakage problems. But if you really want to avoid leaks just put a stock manifold back on.

I'll second the hedman headers, but use the hedman gaskets as they're a really thick one piece gasket and seem to tighten up better

The stock is nice but it isnt stainless. I would go with one that wont like a stainless or ceramic coated.
