    I have a coated set on my K10. Perfect except for shackle bolt interference. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have a non-coated set on my K20. I had the same shackle bolt to collector problem that Tim did, but I had the exhaust shop cut the collector off and weld the pipe directly to the header. No more clearance problems or leaks.

    Edit: I paid $80 for mine. I like them, they are fairly good quality. The tubes run a good distance away from the starter solenoid to help avoid heat problems.

    ive got a set of coated ones on my '91. i like em, except for that shackle bolt interfearance mentioned above. had to cut the bolts pretty short so they dont hit the header.

    i also found out today that my drivers side exhaust support has broken off, so the entire exhaust system has been hanging by the header.

    i have 2 sets, one coated set on my 69 & one non-coated ones that i cut up to make work on my caddy eng.

    i like them fairly well. they are really good when u factor in the price, prolly best deal in headers.
