Exhaust manifold head pipe parts
« on: May 18, 2013, 02:11:13 AM »
Hey guys, I'm getting a list of parts together to connect my head pipes to the exhaust manifolds so I'll have them handy. What all do I need? So far I need to replace the heat valve on the passenger side. I think I'm just gonna go with the spacer on this. I'll need a stud kit for sure. Also I think I'll need 2 donut gaskets, inserts for the donut gaskets and a flat gasket for the spacer. Does that sound about right? I might go for new hardware and french locks as well. Let me know will ya? Thanks.

Oh yeah, who has all this stuff in one shot to buy? I haven't really looked yet.

That should cover it - vendors like Rick's should have everything you need.

Thanks John for replying. I thought I was on my own and when looking at the AIM I wasn't completely sure. Never thought I would get away from hedders for iron manifolds.

Just FYI, if your car has the ZL2 option the heat tube is different with a different part number.  Very hard to find this one.  I ended up having to fabricate one.

Heat tube? That's automatic trans cars I think.

Yup - not needed on any Z/28.
