Long Tube header ground clearance?

Anyone running long tube headers on a 93, where do the collectors end and how much below the frame are they?

Planning and getting ready to gather parts for my new engine and going back and forth on long vs mid length because it is lowered. Changed oil yesterday and realized that there is tons of room for them to place the collector beside the frame rail on the right side but the transmission linkage on the left may force them to lower them a little.

Just do not want to create a problem with dragging or worse getting caught on something backing up and bending them.

Re: Long Tube header ground clearance?

I would like to find out what members say, also! I'd like to see photos of long tube & shorter headers, and how the exhaust is attached underneath.

Also what happens to the catalytic converter location.

If you use long tubes they will not be bolt on to your existing exhaust. Pretty sure you would be looking at reworking the system..

I have found this mid length unit that 'appears' to tie into the existing if you use their Y pipe too. I am betting it is not bolt in though it appears to be the easiest to install I have seen. You can get the headers in a coated version too.
