Headers for SBC conversion in CJ5

What headers are you guys running that have done a SBC conversion in your CJ? I've got my motor mounts installed and about to put the drivetrain in and was just wondering so I don't have to try a bunch of different ones out. Thanks!

My $.02

I used the ones from Headman. Got them from Quadratech. The draw backs have been:

Had to get a flexible dipstick
Plug wires run VERY close to them

Other than that I like em but I haven't run it yet. I have heard that a lot of times the header bolts work loose. We'll see.

Here are the ones I used. I have a corrected cap with the wires running over the heads so no issues there. The only pain was stripping the factory paint off to recoat them.

Hey, on a side note. What are you using/going to use for a throttle cable?
