hey guys i need some quick help. I'm about to order a set of Hedman elite headers that are on Sale for $200 part#68308
hedman's website says they'll fit my 78 vette but a footnote says this

Quote:
Application Notes: 1. Without smog injection or injection heads.
100. Will not fit steering damper inside front crossmember.
will these require any modifications to install. I can bolt on headers but I dont want to modify anything
and does this seem like a good deal

Thnx
j

"Will not fit steering damper inside front crossmember."

The way I read this is, they will not work on non-power(manual) steering cars. IT may mean, however, that they will not work with power steering. Non-power steering cars have a "damper" on the linkage, where the PS cars have the control valve and cylinder. The disclaimer is a bit confusing on that point. You may need to contact them for clarification on that.

"
Without smog injection or injection heads"
This means they do not have provisions for the smog tubes. If your car has the smog tubes going into the exhaust manifolds, you'll have to dis-able the smog system. If you do NOT have the tubes going into the manifolds, you're good to go.
