I decided I should go ahead and start a thread on this, some of you already know what I got going, but this might help someone else out that wants to do this?
I started out with a pile of used headers
2 sets of Chevy small block headers
1 Big Block Oldsmobile
1 Small Block Ford
by the way I put a 351 W in my 78 Bronco, that might help for you to know that???
First I got a game plan going in my head of what I wanted to do and set out to make this happen, so I cut up the pile into what I considered usable pieces
and started laying them out the best way I could think of, this is my first pair I've ever made, I'm sure there is a better way to do this? but this works for me
then I started cutting up pieces and fitting them together like a jig saw puzzle
I got one side finished up and bolted in place for the final time, the best part is I can get to all the bolts with a ratchet/extension + socket
if you are wondering about the extra collectors they are for future exhaust dumps, I did not open them up yet but now was the best time to put them in
I am trying like crazy do get this Bronco done by July 7 for Country Night at our local car show, I don't think I'll make it but I'm not giving up either
let me know what you think of my headers?
