    I am looking into a locking set and noticed there is a 3/4" and a 1" version. My flange is 3/8" thick, do I need the longer ones?

    My BBK headers came with 3/4" but after a couple backed out I installed 1"

    Most header bolts are 3/4, but with a lock under them, I would go with the 1 inch.

    excellent. I just didn't want to end up a 1/4" too long ya know?

    Summit is having a deal were you get half off the locking collector bolts with the purchase of the header. I don't suppose the collector bolts matter if they are longer? What length does everyone use there?

    Not every day you get to be glad you aren't a 1/4" too long.
