So I removed the stock 302. Rebuilt with mild cam, new pistons, refurbed C90e heads, aluminum intake, updated 4 barrel carb, updated distributor. Now my question is do I really need to put a set of headers on? The only set I can find are a bit cheesy. I want to drive the car a lot. Can I use the original exhaust manifolds or is this just way stupid? Thank you for the responses in advance.

Unless you have the heads ported then headers wont make any difference, most of the restriction is in the heads.

If the cam is not to big the manifolds should be fine. The headman headers are not to bad if you modify the number one pipe so it does not go under the crossmember. I have seen a few guys modify the #1 pipe and it looks good and cures the ground clearance issues.
