    Nobody that I have found with extensive searching also. I am sure a Camaro or Malibu set could be made to fit. I run a set of 65210 Hedman headers. They are for a Chevelle(68-73), El Camino(68-77), and Malibu(73-77). These are 1-7/8" primary tubes with a 3-1/2 collector. I had to modify a few things like the left motor mount, a small piece of frame, and a lower control arm mount. Other than that they work good. They do have an adapter plate between the header and the head because the middle pipes are so large getting the middle bolts in would be impossible. I was thinking of going to a set of 1-3/4" but my car works so good with these I am afraid to change and make it slower. A set of 1-3/4" would have to be cheaper than the 65210's that are on it now.
