Right now I'm in exhaust fabricating mode and almost done with my set. I have an extra set (used) that I could rig up if anyone was serious enough about getting them from me. Keep in mind these have 3" collectors so they are not by any means a drop-in mod. Serious inquiries respond or PM.

What price and any chance of making them to fit a 4v? ;)

Negatory on 4v. i doubt the exhaust ports are even in the same locations, so it's not just a matter of switching flanges.

BUT, I tell ya what. Send me a pair of 4V heads, a set of 4V headers, and I can mount them on my mock-up engine and figure out the routing. :)

Ok here are some pics.

This is the one piece that I would have to cut out (about an inch long) to replace the weld that rusted away:


Some minor pitting:






That is the passenger side header that is in worse shape than the driver's side header. For those that PM me, if they're too rough of a shape for you, just let me know so I can junk them.

I think I've responded to everyone that has asked about these. Good to see there is interest so I wont junk them just yet and I'll keep sandblasting them little by little everyday.

Again, this is not a for sale thread because the finished set doesn't exist yet, so I can't name a price just yet.

For those still interested, I took longer than expected because I was not happy with the clearance between the #7 primary and the steering shaft. So I decided to change up the routing and have both the #7 and #8 primaries go up and over the steering shaft. Here is how they look with final tack welds in place and dropped into the engine bay.










Steering shaft AND stupid rag joint fully cleared. :)




Now granted this is with the 'Chuck' mounts that I will be using. Final fitment may be different with stock mushy mounts.

So whoever is still serious about getting the other set done, please PM me. No I will not make the other set first; it's that much of a PITA.

I wish I had the cash to send you a set of Mac headers and a scrap 4v head, I've been drooling over custom long tubes for about a year, but the funds aren't there :( I just moved again and will be moving again shortly. I hate moving hopefully this next move will be my last for awhile.

P.S. Thanks for the info via pm awhile ago!

Is there reason to have any concerns about how close one of the tubes are to the brake lines and rubber boot on the steering shaft assy?

I thought the same thing about the brake lines though it looks like they can be bent out of the way. The rubber boot on the shaft is only there to seal the shaft to the firewall boot, it can be trimmed up to there if it was an issue.

they're not that close. Pictures are deceiving. Besides you have to remember, if these weren't in there, there would still be an exhaust manifold which isn't that far off from those two things anyways.
