    I don't think they will work. Maybe ask the seller.

    Big block Chebby Monte Carlo headers were the only ones I ever heard would work in these cars. They needed fabrication to fit the Cadillac engines of course.

    Those short pipes probably wouldn't scavenge worth a darn anyway. The set pictured look like show parts for hot rods.

    Those headers will not fit. MTS has headers , that he says , will bolt in your car with a 472 in it.

    I didn't think so. I was just looking for shiny stuff and came across them. Thanks!

    Why won't they fit? Why would someone make Cadillac headers that don't fit a Cadillac? If I had a lowrider with some bling under the hood I would try them, otherwise there usually isn't much reason to open a Cadillac hood anyway.

    Those center exit headers are made to fit the Cadillac engine as used in a roadster or tractor pull vehicle. The one collector points right at the upper control arm in a '77 - '96 chassis.

    Installing headers can be something one never forgets.
