    Hello. Just wondering if anyone knows if i'll have any fitment issues with a set of headers on my 88 k5. What i'm concerned about is whether i'll run into problems with them clearing the slave on a hydro bellhousing. I'm leaning toward the Edelbrock TES w/ air injection. Is anyone running the same set up or know of any issues with this? Thanks.

    Headers For 88 K5

    I just installed a pair of doug thorley tri -y's on my 88 K5 this year they went on fine. The only place it was tight was by the rear shackle bolt on the front leaf springs. If you have a lift biggger than 4'' they have a y pipe that will clear the front drive shaft. They will bolt up to the stock 3" single exhust. Good low end torque with aggessive sound w/flowmaster 40 series.

    does anyone know what it would cost to run new exhaust from the headers back. i would buy the mufflers and headers and take them in. probably run duals right out the back. 85 k5

    All the way out the back from the headers was about $300 at the local shop. Clearance wasn't really a big problem but I ran into O2 sensor problems and had to install a 3-wire sensor so it would be heated. AFS-74 I believe was the AC Delco Part# but don't quote me, might just be something to look into.
