The template they give you shows DOUBLE the size that was cut - since the motor was out it didnt need it - the hole is mainly for installation purposes

The tire clearence is pretty good, ALOT better then full fenderwells, the coardboard is for new sheetmetal template, to cover the holes from the template that hooker sends you ( keep in mind that the holes are 1/2 the size they recommend cutting!!?!??!)

the #2 tube will have to be unbolted, pulled out of the slip connector and laid down on the frame to be able to remove the oil filter.

the collectors are 2 1/2 " and the passengers side drops lower to accept the lopsided crossmember.

they gotta flo better then my splitfies, BUT they are a lot more work.

Do your ports line up with the head? I had a set of those on my '65 A/340 combo and the ports we almost 1/4 inch off. They drilled the flange too low and all the exhaust footprints on the gasket were almost touching the bottom. Course, didnt find out until I took em off one day to replace the gasket. Sent the gasket to Hooker header group of Mr Gasket and they said it was a manufacturing error, "do you have your receipt?" I said "No, they are 3 years old..what does it matter, its not a wearing part, it was how it as made" no dice.... Pulhair^*
