    Nice job; 2 into 2 into 1. Can you say torque? What vehicle is that?

        Nice work! in the days of 30 cents per gallon gas they were nicknamed Tri-Y headers. Very streetable and torquey. Are you going to run a cross-over pipe? What intake and cam, heads, etc?

        Just tell us everything now to save time!

          It is a really mild combo should be able to just drive, but have some ***** too.

            Don't understand much of the above, but that was a real exercise in fitting! Did you have access to jigs and templates?

              No jigs just trial & error. I have determined I'm not a PF.

                  Thank you, that was my first try at building headers. If I do it again I go with stainless.

                    I'll have to find pictures of my '76 Monte Carlo. I went 496ci with the engine and by the time I got done monkeying with the suspension it drove and handled nimble like a Chevelle with a 250ci six cylinder through slalom tracks. At the time "Hooker" custom built my headers and although expensive, worked well. Wish I had the talent to build things like you show but I've made enough gains improving/repairing existing designs that never really had the time.
                    Thanks for reading/listening.
