SBC swap headers?

I'm trying to line up a good set of headers for this swap and wanted to get a few opinions. I have a '06 Vortec 6.0L and although the truck manifolds will fit, one is cracked, and the other (drivers side) interferes with where my slave cylinder will be mounted. So I need something that will miss the motor mounts (Advance) but still dump before the slave location.

I don't have a pic of everything mocked up, but here is what the bellhousing looks like, you can see the slave cyl. bracket is cast into the drivers side.



I've found a couple that look like they might fit, just looking for some opinions before ordering.

Looks like these might interfere with the motor mounts:

Any other suggestions are welcome.

The Vette ones might not clear the motor mounts but they are center dump.

The F-body's might clear as they are rear dump but don't kick out like the trucks.

It's hard to tell from the pictures. When you get the motor mounted you can measure and see alittle better.

Hell by some of the F-bodys and see it they fit. They aren't that expensive and you can always sell them.

Gen III headers

Novak says they offer headers to fit the Gen III/LS motors in CJ/YJ frames so you might want to check with them. Most of the header mfr's offer a "universal" header designed to put that motor in street rods, etc.

Right on, thanks for all the ideas guys. I am going to try and do some measuring and I may try the F-body headers as a first try mainly due to price.

Good to know there are a few other options if they don't pan out.
