    We just installed a 350 into our '84 Z28 CP car...
    The 'new' motor has a extra capacity oil pan on it(it sorta 'wings' out at the bottom), and now our shorty hedders are pointing right at the pan with no clearance for the exhaust.
    I need to know what 'long tube' hedders will fit my car, and what exhaust pipe configuration will work with them?
    Any help is greatly appreciated SCCAForums Image

    Redbird... I know exactly the pan you are talking about... not many headers will clear it. You may want to call the Manufacturer, and they may know. A friend of mine, just had those 'wings' machined to a 45' angle to get his Full Length Headers to clear... If you know a good welder, they could do that for you.
    Peace,

    Thanks Dave,
    We ended up buying a set of Hooker S/C long tubes for the car.
    They fit great, and weren't [i]that[/i] much of a pain to install SCCAForums Image
