Do dents in headers affect performance. I found one that has a dent for the steering column to fit. Is this ok?

i honestly dont think it will affect anything..unless it is more of a "kink" instead of a dent...My longtubes on my 5.0 required some beating...

A small/shallow dent won't make any difference--how big and deep a dent are we talking about?

BBK's come with a dent already in them to allow clearance of the steering shaft. A small dent wont hurt.

Macs are dent/ crimp-free...
and if you want a Prochamber, it'll bolt right up to the Mac's, unlike if you get the BBK's (ChrisJ knows what i'm talking about lol)...
