Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Looks like some plumbing workarounds ahead for you? Headers look good, real good!

My guy got mine rough fitted on the passenger side last week but my motor likes 28" 2-1/4 x 2-3/8 primaries with a slip on 4-1/2" high velocity merge collector, so not long enough to make it under the cab, had to angle them down and out, don't look nowhere as nice as yours lol, but should make power.

Sure like the looks of them tucked under more like yours but engine builder said would have to give up a bit of power and I didn't want to give any up, already giving up some with the block. Not sure I'll even build an exhaust for off the track this time, never street drive it anymore anyway.

Thanks was happy with results. I have always really liked your truck and would be great to come see it at the track soon.

Brought me a shiny new water pump. Told a buddy I'm out of the 80's now. No more external pump drive.[IMG][/IMG]

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Guys. I'm pecking away at it. I dropped the headers off to be coated Tuesday. I will have them back in a couple weeks. Hopefully it will start coming together pretty soon. I'm tired of it being scattered all over the shop.
