Justin,
From reading your prior posts, you had to search out and invest some $'s in those headers, but out of curiosity, why not a custom header for the driver side vs what you have now?

Is the exhaust port spacing the same on the LT1 heads vs older standard type chevy head, ie like the old rectangular double humps?

That long travel suspension looks really nice.:-)

Cheers
Andy

Thanks Lybrium! Headed down the rabbit hole early.

Hi Andy, Well, because I already own them and they're tuned for the motor as a pair so any alteration or a mismatch (home made header on the left side) would defeat their whole purpose. Also, the long travel suspension was always going to happen, its just happening sooner rather than later. Yeah, it is a really nice kit. I don't own the arms just yet but I'm saving up for them.
Thanks again you guys!
Justin

Its been in the works for a while. I bought the coil overs at least 5 years ago.

The hoop kit I bought from a guy who had a change in plans. Well worth the 200 bucks I paid just for the brackets and tabs alone. Anyway A-Arms next... Justin

Last of the needed firewall reliefs...for now.

Another problem this suspension change will fix: the shock hoop will also double as mount for the new steering shaft to work off of.

At least the master cylinder/booster cleared. Thank god for small miracles; Take a win when I can.

New section added for the needed header clearance.

Just have to add a matching profile onto the cover to seal it back up.

New profile patch with only a corner bolt to add back in.

Capture nut and bolt added. Relief finished.

Mocked up again and have the all clear.

Onto the next deal. Thanks for looking! Justin
