    I never updated this. I went with some DNA headers on Amazon. I think they were $88.

    I have threaded all the bolts in by hand. Plug clearance sends decent, and they don't touch the frame anywhere.

    My shackles are moved fwd and up and they are pretty close right now. I'm going to modify the collectors with V bands and put a small bend to clear the shaxkles.

    Oh goody. Those are the same ones I ordered that are sitting on my shelf right now. Glad they seem to work good so far for you.

    I went with the full length El cheapo with the same luck but I would went with these in hindsight as I could made the exhaust run cleaner and the shackle wouldn't tag the collector

    When the eBay 15% coupon rolled in this week I decided to join this party for $86 shipped. I'll run header buddies instead of the included reducers and add an O2 bung in each collector. The Jegs mild steel headers also dropped under $100, so it's probably coulda/woulda/shoulda. I've just had a pet theory lately that rust from the inside of the headers will plug the cats.

    I’m running those exact ones on my 75 K5 with Vortec heads. Fit great clear everything barely, there’s very little space on the drivers side frame rail I can barely put a finger between the rail and the tube. Blazer is a sm465 so I couldn’t tell you about fitting an auto, and I’m running a mini starter
