    What type/style exhaust is everyone running with the 52s and 56s up front? I've got the standard long tube headers and can't get enough clearence between it and the driveshaft. Also I don't know that shorties will work because of my manual clutch linkage. Any tricks or tips? Help me here.:crazy:

    I run straight down ram horns with a factory crossover that goes under the oil pan.
    Its a really slick setup that flows more then stock manifolds.

    I will soon be running a set of Doug Thorley headers. Notice how the driver side rear pipe is angled inward slightly, that is engough to clear a clutch assembly. Also the passenger side is slightly shortened so it shouldn't matter about the spring clearance. The part number at Summit is DTE-364Y

    Another alternative is to run block hugger headers. :dunno:

    If these are what I'm thinking about, I've got a couple sets of those straight down ram horns. They came on some of the trucks I've parted.

    I was really wanting to keep a header of some sort, along with my dual exhaust. Anyone else?
