Well heres the 360, all tunnel rammed up and no where to go... those manifolds are my weak link.....




the 1 7/8 pipes go to 2" after they get throught the tight a - body suspension



here they are side by side...




The drives side slides in without a hitch - well i had to pull the colum to get the manifold off anyway! ;D



THe collector dumps right after the starter, and it is not captured by it at all.

tha passenger side has to have the 90 degree filter set with the filter at 3 oclock ( standing on the pass side)
other then that they drop right in also, no lifting the motor...etc


It figures that the column shift hits the last tube completely.... ? cant ding in a whole friggin tube? cut the column and add 3/4 inch!



( it took me awhile to grow a set and cut it tho... ;D)



no goin back now... is there?


with a little help from A-Body Joe we get it fit up and streight!


here it is mocked up... the 3/4 inch made alot of difference!, and I cant notice the wheel 3/4 of an inch closer...


all welded up... good thing i just replaced the bearing...


All blasted and ready to go!


here they are with powder, Eastwoods hi temp powder... silver


"honey... the manifolds done..."
sittin next to the cast iron powder from eastwood also...


ta da...


In the car!






Next is exhaust cutouts.. so I made up a template to fishmouth the 2 1/2" dumps...


ready to be welded up..


Now I just need about 1 foot of 2 1/2" pipe bent and I am good to go!

OOOhhhh yeahhh!

The legendary Spitfire headers - I got mine on August 21st. Now all I've gotta do is lose the power steering, relocate the oil filter and fabricate the headpipes and dumps.

I ordered my headers from Harold.

Now,..........Ceramic coating or paint? Should I use Locking Safety Bolts on the headers?

Suggestions?  Locations? Costs?

Thanks!
