OK so engine is in moving very slowly, life is getting in the way. Looking to put headers on. My last Vette I put hooker headers and sidepipes a long time ago was looking to install tight fit headers and standard exhaust as it needs it anyway. Any suggestions and do they even make headers to mate up with 2 inch exhaust or do I just change the transmission bracket just installed for the stock 2 inch?

I'll give you my 2 cents on headers. The corvette comes with great headers they have great flow & work. The only problem is they are cast iron. I would only use long headers & only on a high  performance engine,  but the stock header work just as good...just not as pretty. Headers also create lots of heat in a small engine compartment like the C-3. Plus it's hard to find a good header that fits unless you are willing to spend big bucks.
