Thanks,

The engine is actually a Ford 400 stroked 434. Yes CHI Cleveland heads. You know the limitation with the exhaust through the suspension. I did not want 180's because I did not want to lose my trunk space. The headers designed to go over the suspension.

This set had a major flaw which I learned when I took some EGT readings. The 2 into 1 were improperly matched. It was nice I ceramic coated them before I tested them. They make nice wall ornaments. I have another set to test which I will as soon as I finish paint.

Here are some more photos:

So I don't divert this thread, PM me if you like.
