    Gonna run some headers on the sled. Only problem I'm having is what style to get. I'm think shorties with a center dump. I think they'll clear everything better. But the biggest issue is the AC bracket. Did you guys just use big spacers to fill the space the manifold provided? Pics would be a bonus!!!:cool1:

    (smiling guy whistling) WOW that's clean! It looks like the center dumpers work well then. Now I gotta figger out how to install the AC bracket. The 2nd bolt back needs to stick out about another inch or two.......

    Stole that off the drivers side (stock) header on a 4.3 truck. You can see where the factory welds had broken. :) I suspect that is what you need, correct? Just on the 2nd bolt.

    So happened that the flange thickness on my headers was just right with that spacer.

    I think it'd work like that. Mine has the wishbone looking bracket that uses the 1st two holes, but I could cut and use just the 1st hole. ( he said "the 1st hole:blush: )

    Don't seem to be able to find my Jeg's or Summit catalogs, anyway they have A/C brackets for headers that don't require spacers.

    I bought the Edelbrock T.E.S. headers a few years back and they came with spacers for my AC bracket. It basically looks like the pic above.
