Ok folks I'm running a SBC 417ci (4-speed in a 78 Sil Ann), streetable hyd roller cam. Edlebrock EGR intake, stock Quadrejet, Pro topline heads, and I would like to install a set of headers since the car has just passed smog here in Ca. Any recommedations. This is my daily driver so as always ground clearance is an issue.
thanks,
A. Sclafani

Since it is your daily driver, would go with 1 3/4 Hooker Super Comps.What bore and stroke combination did you use to come up with 417 ci.

it's 4.125 bore with .0065 overbore I believe, I don't quite remember. The block had enough meat to warrant two overbores. I had it built twice before with oil usage issues. And if I'm not mistaken it has the long rod 6", I honestly forget.
