Default Header Help!

I've been tryin to find headers for my bonneville for a while.. Everytime I think I find some, I call to get info, and they "won't fit." I've looked at Hooker and I think Edelbrock(sp?). Hookers will fit an '83 Monte Carlo (same engine/style) but according to the www.jegs.com associate, they will not fit the ol bonneville.. If anyone knows any good (not too expensive, $250 max) headers for an '83 Bonneville Brougham with a 305 5.0L V8, tell me.

I have seen quite a few old bonnevilles with the Olds 307 V8 as opposed to the chevy V8... I think later years like the 85-86 Bonnevilles may have had a Chevy 5.0 V8... I drove one, an 85 model and it had the 5.0 305 chevy engine...

Not to be repetitive, but are you sure you have a chevy V8 under there?
Wow.. now that I think about it, I've been taking my dad'* word on it the entire time. I have no idea... How do I check that out?
All of the times I have looked for 83 brougham specs the only engine that comes up is the 3.8 v6.. any information would REALLY be of help..
