Exhaust manifold removal...
« on: January 07, 2008, 09:58:36 PM »
My '68 327/210 Camaro has a cracked exhaust manifold(passenger side). I have a replacement, just need to put it on. The car has factory air and little room to work from the top. Can this be removed from the bottom? Or should I remove the factory AC and take it out from the top?

One other consideration. I could just go ahead and put headers on this motor. The motor's mostly stock. I would definitely want a small tube diameter header. Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you have no room for an exhaust manifold exchange you certianly won't have room for headers. I'd attack from the bottom. Juice everything up good with Gibbs a fw days before your removal.

never had much luck working from the bottom. remove the ac and proceed from there, its a pain in the but working with exhaust. you will have to attack the doughnut gasket bolts from the bottom though, you will need a long extenstion and a deep well 9/16 socket and mabey a swivel.
