has anyone used the dynomax long tube headers on their k5? If so, did you like them?
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.
i had a set in my k5 with a 454 and had no problems with fit or clearence.
I have a coated set on my 77 K5 350. I have some leak issues, but nothing major.
I had the same collector problem but i let it self clearance on my 1st trip out. now it is good to go /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
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.
how low do then hang below the frame?
on mine the bottom of the header is even w/ the bottom of the rear shackle.
i want to get a cheap used pair and cut out a bit to try to keep it above the lower flange
