Hedman Hustler Headers
The Hedman Hustlers seem to be an underdog in the a-bodies,
and are rarely seen
in these cars, yet they do a fairly good job, and are actually somewhat
better than the Hookers, which seem to be quite popular.
These are the 2" Hustlers for bigblock A-bodies. According to Hedman,
they require both manual brakes AND manual steering, as the number one
primary tube would interefere with the bigger steering box.
It does work with column or floor shift, and, being a full fenderwell
header, does not interfere with clutch linkage.
If anything, they certainly LOOK menacing. The long sweeping bends
appear to be less restrictive than some other designs.
| These tubes really do some snaking around before they
exit the well. The passenger side appears to require holes in the fender
for plug access. Driver side just looks like a pain regardless.
The collectors on these headers actually start vertically, inside
the wheelwell, and end with a bend, and the flange right at the fender
bottom. This install has custom cut-outs added. Tire clearance I'm told
is better than the Hookers, but still nothing to brag about.
