Darrell, Do you know the Header brand and primary tube size. I noticed 67 w/ P.S.
If you know the exact PN or was it something that was found along the way- acquired with car?

They are 2" primaries & 3.5" collectors.  Brand is unknown.  They were for a non p/s car so the primary tube had to be "messaged" to make them fit.  They are around 35-40 years old.  I had them blasted and coated them myself.  Part # on the flanges are L 325 & R 325.

Its certainly possible but the bends are different.  That doesn't mean that they didn't change their design.  I always thought they were Thorley headers but when I called them about a week ago and asked they didn't have any old catalogs and the part # for the 325 was for a newer model LS swap header..  I asked this question over on Yenko in the "Day 2" section and another member there posted what he had which was an old catalog and the part #'s are different.  So I really do not know at this point.

P.S....watch the fuel by the battery next time on the stand  ;)   ( I am a firefighter.)

Looks like it's coming along nicely. Schedule permitting ,should be finally able to get back to mine end of Feb. ( coming off a much needed skiing vacation, so I'm not complaining) Honestly just been prolonging as I have been undecided on the direction. Never wanted to go back stock , Day 2 was an option, but confines it still. To be continued...

Agree with Bullitt...very crisp , all cylinders hitting, (no smoke) nice "lobe" to it.  Can't beat firing it on a stand  prior to installation. On the race engine I have alignment marks dist/intake.

I just dropped it in and advanced it a little and it hit instantly.  Ill put a light on it in the next few days and get it dialed in.  Ill set it at 34-35 & call it good for now on mix fuel.
