Default Any interest in long tube headers for the LS 240 swaps?

Hey John here from Giffin's Performance.

So I'm going to put it out there for some feedback as far as getting a set of long tube headers made for the LS swapped 240's. I currently make the LS swap mounts, 4l80 cross members, and 8.8 swap kits for the 240's as well as the 7/9 series cars. What I'm looking for is

A: if people are actually interested and
B: at what price point will they be a no go.

These will be 304 stainless 1-3/4 primaries with a 3" collector. The company has a reputation for good quality parts but like I said talks are in the preliminary stages at the moment.

Also on a side note I should have a website up in the next couple of weeks for people to order directly from instead of the Facebook page.

No - but just because I have a turbo.

Id be curious to see how they fit, how far they drop down from frame and cost. Im using my hooker headers and Im quite happy with them but if you get more room between steering shaft and headers...

Are you still using the fat rubber isolated shaft?

You can replace it with a solid metal shaft: https://www.jegs.com/i/Coleman-Racin...9-112/10002/-1

Ive been using the colman shaft for years now and Im still close to touching with the hooker headers and my steering setup moved 1" over the drivers side.
