Crites header fitment  Empty Crites header fitment

It took Three months but I finally got my headers from crites .And they did fit ok. My old set (10 years old ) didn't fit worth a dam around the pitman arm well they changed all that and that isn't an issue now you are still tight at the steering box but my other set was tight there too.All in all they fit well ok .This is in my 67 comet with AFRs raised ex flange 3/8".One issue with those afrs you need to grind the bottom of the header flange probably 1/8" at a 45 degree angle the afr heads have a flange that is higher than my edelbrocks it keeps the bottom of the header flange from sealing .A little grinding will eliminate all that.Really for the price I paid about $550 these aren't bad headers .Some of my chevy buddies pay lots more .I really like the older style that have a crossover tube .I believe it is #7 and #3 that makes fitment around the steering box much nicer .I believe Gt 350 has a set like that .Happy new year !

I have a set for my 56 and they hang a bit low but overall they fit good. It's not like there are any other options anyways. lol.
