    Shorty headers, 2.5" to the Y, 3" from the Y with a Flowmaster super 50 I believe, out the drivers side rear corner. I'll take a picture when I pick it up.

    I basically wanted it the way I scabbed it together to fix the P.O stuff. Just finally getting around to having it done right

    It sounds good. Some things happened between dropping it off and getting back to town. It's what you get when you just toss the keys I guess. They called me when it was done before I even knew the headers were in their hands. I wanted high and tight to eventually flat belly. Oh well. I guess I'll just drop the belly a few inches and make room for other ideas.

    Shift linkage touches the header flange. Can't do anything against them because it's do to the engine mounts. I'll have to fix that with a different shifter I think.

    Also realized it ran rough and really rich this afternoon. Found the spark wire touching. I'll fix that tomorrow.
