Getting ready to swap my slant six/auto from my 77 B200 shorty for a 318/aod. Already have the air gap intake, Edelbrock carb and HEI dizzy for the swap. What I'm wondering, is if anyone has tried the Summit, Sanderson, or any other brand of block hugger headers on their LA block mid Dodge. I know that Hedman still makes long tube headers for the van, but I'm really wanting something shorter, to try and avoid a ton of exhaust tubing going back and forth for my side pipes. Here are a couple links for what I'm looking at.

Summit block huggers

Sanderson block huggers

I don't see why it wouldn't work but is no one has chimed in for a month, we may not have an answer for you.

Are you on Facebook? I know there are several van groups on there with a lot more active members that may give you a better answer or have someone who has tried. Most groups will try and sell you something though instead of answering your questions. Personally, I would try Summit first because of their incredibly generous return policy in the event it doesn't work out.

I'm on the mid Dodge group on there, and nobody really has an answer, either. Lol! I know i can go the Hedman route, if i have to, but i'd really like a shorter tube option. May just have to go with the Hedmans anyway. I guess we'll see. Lol!

I wonder if a C.A.R.B. approved exhaust is 50 state legal, when the EPA Regs now say no Mods from stock?

You would think they would work by the design just by looking at them wouldnt you? But they dont. On a BB, they hug they block very very close to the cast bosses of the engine mounts, AND, they dump out on the center of the control arm! Since Ive done this twice on two different vans, using Sandersons and the cheap, $100.00 "knock offs" ( which arent that bad really), I found that the cast motorhome and the offset mounts from said motorhome work best. If youve gotta have headers, Hedmans will kick the tubes back higher and out of the way.
