Exhaust Headers
« on: November 05, 2016, 08:07:45 PM »
Hi Guys
New to the forum, please bare with me with getting used to this,
I'm from Sydney and proud owner of a 1981 Trans Am, just recently pulled out the old 301 Turbo engine and dropped in a Pontiac 350,
only mods were an Edelbrock intake manifold, 600 holley and MSD ignition system just to wake her up a little, fitted a new exhaust system with magnaflow mufflers and was going to leave the stock exhaust manifolds on, upon its first drive its got a horrid leak from the right side manifold that had been poorly repaired, my question is if there is any recommended headers that will fit straight in, looking at Flowtech 11170FLT, any feedback would be great!
A/C has been taken out, no cat conv.

It has been my experience that all headers no matter what brand will be accompanied by much swearing and at least some mild "adjustment". (hammering)
