Headman ceramics, they call them the off-road only headers. Great value, good header, bung for smog...Yes gaskets...Stage 8 bolts. No problems.
And there is a neat little badge you can see through the wheel wells. Mine were in boxes in the truck when I bought it so I can't comment on the price.

I had some headmans on my El Camino, SBC. They would constantly burn my spark plug boot. If you can't make a header for a SBC... Called a couple more places today and they told me no dice, they don't make them for the 460. Now I understand why prices are so high, limited supply. It has nothing to do with the cost of materials or manufacturing.

I started a go-fund-me account where other people can donate their kidneys to the cause.

First off, I've read your build over on one of the other sites and really like your truck. I wish I had your steering. I currently have a set of Edelbrock headers and Y pipe that I scored used. Thick flanges at the head, not stainless though. I don't think they make them anymore though. I know where there is a complete Banks Power Pack setup that I stupidly sold when I had sold one of my last trucks, but it's for a manual trans truck and I have the E4OD. I may be going to buy it, if i do I'll be selling what I have.

I mistakenly looked at Pappa's sig when I looked up the part number. I should have paid more attention. Bad Eak! Bad! Bad!

I don't want to steal your deal but if you are willing pm the price and location. They might still be too expensive for my budget.

I wrestled with the same thing man. My buddy has Doug Thorley, he loves them and said he noticed a good torque difference.

I have an early 93 without air injection so it was hard to find Doug Thorley. Banks were more $$$ but easier to find and well proven. That's what I went with and glad I did.

With how much heat our 460s put out, I wouldn't pinch pennies on manifolds, you'll get what you pay for.

I have been looking for a long time too! I think that banks is the way to go. But with what i have spent to get mine back in shape I will have to wait to be able to afford them. College tuition bills!!!
