    i'll be replacing headers on a 70 dart 340 w/ auto trans soon. looks like it won't be easy, so i was wondering who makes the best fitting set. also if anyone could tell me what to lookout for during the install i would appreaciate it. don

    Well, I personally like the TTI headers, they don't have any tubes that run under the steering linkage. I have their complete exhaust on my 340 71 Demon. I laid them in before I put the motor in. The biggest problem is the cost, they're not cheap!

    he TTI are probably the best from what everyone says ( I dont know cuz I run hedman) So I would say Heddmans are the 2nd best (still a tight fit tho) best help I can offer to get the car as high as possible then go higher. also it sure would help to have a second pair of hands help you too

    yeah the TTI are the absolutely best headers, had flowtech and they where ok to but you have to lift your engine to put them in that goes for all of them have your car as high as possible on jackstands and an engine lift to lift the engine a litle and an extra set of hands never hurts:)

    gulp. i know this is going to be dicey. the removel with a sawsall sounds good. i'm toast if i have to loosen the motor if its more than a mount. if the tti's fit without tearing the motor out then i don't care what they cost, other wise i'm hiring it done and will spend the $ on labor instead of headers. i'll still have to pay for the final piping. if someones done this to a 70 dart can a basic novice do it? thanks don

    No matter what headers you buy you'll need to raise the motor up a bit. The TTIs are the best fitting headers out.

    The easiest install would be the TTI's, but definately not the cheapest.
