    Does anyone have part numbers or pictures of BBC headers adapted to a 500 for a G Body? or early Chevelle for that matter. I have two sets, neither of which are satisfying the need. One is a set of G Body long tubes and the passenger side is built to totally interfere with the AC box. The other is a set of Sanderson A Body mid length that interfere with the passenger upper A-arm and driver frame. The Sandersons can be made to work but I wonder if a set of BBC mid length or long tubes would be easier to manipulate onto a set of Cadillac flanges.

    Any suggestions or pictures would be appreciated.

    I had someone do mine from bbc chevelle headers. He still hates me!
    Was muchwork he said. Right side most work because of Head staggerd forward of left head. Crossmember and starter are there. Plus my engine is 2.5”” over that way

    Ted an earlier owner of this board said that the 460 ford headers are similar tube spacing and the ford has the tubes like a caddy with the # one forward unlike the 454's have.This is something you might look into. Anybody else remember this?

    In the for sale section you asked about the Sanderson Headers and I don't think they really do hug very well. On my T-Bird I used 460 Van headers

    They most likely also make 460 headers for your Torino that you can switch the flange on.

    Here's where I made the headers for the T-Bird.

    But since you plan to use the turbo everything has to be more custom than this.
