      I know they are pricey, but the repo Max Wedge Manifolds are so cool on a 62. I also agree with using 67-71 HP Manifolds.

              Baaaab! See if Chris has the 2" TTI's that were on the 440 I sold him out my 65. Maybe get a deal on them? They were coated in and out.

                  I looked at the Dougs for my 74 Charger, but summit only has them fitting through 72, not sure why they wouldn't fit 73/74. Anyway I went with TTI's. Awaiting them to arrive now.

                    On my old 440 in my 63 Sport Fury I ran 1-3\4 Headman headers and they worked good. I believe they were only around $300 dollars but I have not priced them lately. I know they are much cheaper then the 2" TTI headers I run now. Just thought it may be something for you to consider. Good luck with it. Ron

                      I went with the 1 7/8, but only because I didn't want to wait a month to get the 1 3/4. That was the wait time according to TTI. They're on the car and look great. Trying to figure out a hot condition on the highway that wasn't there before the headers, but will figure it out.

                        Ive had quite a few sets of headers to inludes Dougs, Hooker's, Sandersons, etc and I have never fit as well as TTI or even Schumacher
