SEMA 2022: Hedman Shows First-Gen F-Body LT V8 Swap Headers

Modern GM engines make everything from classics to hot rods to muscle cars, better. The latest iteration of GM’s superstar mill is the LT series, and if you’re trying to transplant one into first-gen F-bodies and their related stablemates, read on. We stopped by the Hedman Hedders booth in the Central Hall at the SEMA Show. There, we talked with rep Marty Dunkerly, and he filled us in on all the details of this exciting new set of F-body headers.

“Our new long-tube LT-swap headers fit 1967 through 1969 GM F-body (Camaro, Firebird) and 1968 through 1974 GM X-body cars (Chevy Nova, Pontiac Ventura, Buick Apollo). They’re built using 304 stainless-steel flanges, primary tubes, and collectors. They have smooth-flowing, 1-7/8-inch-diameter, CNC mandrel bent tubes that are hand-welded by our guys to ensure each pair is identical to the next.”

Dunkerly continues, “The stout 3/8-inch header flanges ensure a great seal that will resist warping, and the high-flow 3-inch race collectors ensure unimpeded exhaust flow for maximum performance. We also back our headers with a one-year warranty.”

We especially like the super high-quality construction of these headers, something we have come to expect from Hedman over the years. They ship from the factory with a raw 304 stainless steel surface, just waiting for your special finishes to crown your engine install.

Hedman Headers has a full portfolio of super nice products; what do you need?

Hedman Hedders, along with its Hedman Husler race-header division, has been building quality headers in the USA since 1954! Hedman has manufactured long and mid-length tube headers for Camaros, Firebirds, and Novas for decades, so designing good-fitting, great-performing parts for the next-generation LT engine was easy breezy.  Go here for more details.
