Default 69 351W EXHAUST HELP

I have a dilema on what kind of exhaust to install,JBA was my first choice but they do not make headers for my installation.I could go with hedman or hooker but I don't want all the problems that come with them (clearance,leaks,etc.)Would the stock ones work with some flowmasters? The Hooker's sound like a good choice,but did you have to contend with the power steering or ground clearance?FYI I also have a FMX.

I have a set of Hooker Super Comp headers on my 69 Fastback w/351-W/C-6. They fit great, even clear my C-6 trans and the plugs on my Dart Windsor Sr heads (can be a problem). No leaks yet either. They are 1 3/4 tubes with equal length 32" primaries, 3" collectors. The part # is 6208. Beware though, they are pricey @ $350. I used to have a set of Hooker #6116. ~$260 They fit, but would not clear a C-6, C-4 was no problem. These use 1 5/8" tubes. On these the motor has to be jacked up off the mounts to put them on. The 6208's don't have this problem. I also have had a set of Hedman @~$175. They were supposed to clear a C-6 also, but the quality on these was poor. I sold them at a loss to a friend. He has them in his 69 w/351-W/FMX.
