Let Your C10's Big-Block Breathe
Hedman's new mid-length headers for big-block's maximize power and flow without sacrificing ground clearance. Chevrolet C10 and C20 pickup trucks have become increasingly popular among enthusiasts thanks to their plentiful numbers, an abundance of available parts and, in the case of the C10, a stock car-style truck-arm suspension that perfectly complements a lowered stance. Adding to the popularity of these trucks is the availability of classic big-block Chevy power, whether originally equipped or as a transplant. Big-blocks need to breathe, however, and if your truck is lowered, traditional long-tube headers can have major ground-clearance issues leading to scraped and dented primary tubes. Now, with the release of Hedman's new mid-length headers, C10/20 owners can get the most horsepower possible from their big-blocks, without having to worry about costly header or exhaust system damage caused by diminished ground clearance. Hedman's mid-length headers deliver maximum exhaust flow, while maintaining a lower profile than traditional long tubes. With 1¾-inch mandrel bent primaries, these headers have the capacity to complement heavy-breathing naturally aspirated or supercharged big-blocks. They also feature integrated ball-and-socket style flange collectors for a durable, gasket-free seal. They fit 1967-1987 Chevrolet and GMC ½-ton and ¾-ton trucks equipped with the factory 396ci or 454ci V-8 engine as well as aftermarket big-block Chevys that utilize factory-style heads. These headers are built so well that Hedman guarantees them for life and the HTC-coating for five years. For more information, call 562-921-0404 or visit www.c10headers.com.
