Hey, I want some cheap headers for my truck, but don't know which to get and where. I don't want to modify my shifter linkage either, just because I have a column shifter. Oh, it's a 318.

You didn't have to modify the shifter linkage? I ask, cause when I put headers on my big block mopar car I had to mangle and flip the linkage cause it was a column shifted automatic.

Just installed the Hedman Headers from Jegs on the 89 318 Ramcharger, and they fit great. Welded in an $8:00 O2 sensor bung, and it all works great. Relocated the vacuumn ball, and ran custom 3" exhaust all the way back with no cats or mufflers. It rocks !!! Get the 4 tube headers, and you'll notice the power difference. Almost seems like a big block now. :)

Alright, sounds like I'm going to do it. Do I have to get rid of the smop pump? Not that I care, but I just have to figure out the belts. Also can I put just the headers on (not the whole exhaust) without removing that ball I have on the tranny crossmember for the vacuum axle stuff?

you dont have to get rid of the smog pump.

if ya do, the local auto part store sells a belt that goes only on the water pump and crank shaft. completely bypassing any smog pump. no idea on p/n.

i got the cheap summit headers on my ramcharger, no mods except for reaming the flange bolt holes on the header flange. i have used hedmen with no problems at all. my next set will be the steps from hedmen. i agree with going with the mini starter.
