There should be a world of difference when I get these things in..... right?
Looking straight down on the driver's side. The outlet goes even a bit forward.
Another shot on the fit on the driver's side.
This shows the outlet, with the current down pipe hanging loose.
I'll either have that pipe welded to the reducer, or have them fabricate another.
This shows the reducer bolted on, and the pipe to the cat removed.
Modifications to the A/C bracket. There is a brace to the manifold on top that triangulates this for good support.
Test fitting the bracket with a fabricated spacer. It's now painted, and back on the car, with the old manifolds.
It's solid, and I shouldn't have trouble with it.
Pass. side. You can see the driver's side pipe back in place (red line).
The pass. side hit the starter, and the bell housing on this side (red dots).
The X is the inlet to the cat for this side.
Another shot on the intended target.
I sent this set back. Since it was for an F body, the Driver's side works, but the Passenger side doesn't. I am now getting part number 68470-left side only, and part number 68600-right side only, to get this to work. Just waiting on the parts, and the test fit on the passenger side. Then they go to the LO-KO shop for silver ceramic coating.
Test fit the right side part number 68600, and it fits great.
I had the old manifold off, the header on, and the original setup back in place
in about an hour. (I'm excited!)
A closer look at the short run to the cat (X)
I'll need to protect these wires from the heat. Does anyone have a suggestion?
I will be getting a remote solenoid setup to keep that away from the heat.
Just got the headers back with a nice new silver coating!!!!
The headers before getting attached to the system.
I'm having trouble with
the first plug change since installing the headers. #6 it trying to be a
