    I completed my installations of the Hedman headers 66104 without too much issue ... they fit pretty darn good. They replaced an older rusty set of hedman headers with the old type flanges.

    Now I am installing the cut outs, of course they are stainless and my exist is mild steel and of course they line up with the crossmember making it harder to do trans rebuilds. Yes I break it every so often when I race/drive.

    Before I burn this all in I would like to get you all to offer opinions on how it is going. I have v'band clamps so I can remove the cutouts so I can remove the trans as well as give me the ability to clock the cutouts as needed.

    Nothing touches medal, this is from the front:

    Here is where the motor is getting tucked:

    This is the side view from the drivers side:

    This is looking from the passenger side straight across to the drivers side:

    This is how it looks from the rear:

    This is this years winter projects. New serpentine, AC, power steering and box, headers and exhaust.

    Every winter I do something to keep myself busy since I am not a sleeper.

    I have owned the car since 1986.

    Here is how the Xpipe connects to the cut outs:

    I just need to take it all down and burn it in to complete my tach welds.

    Interesting. I had cut outs on my last exhaust and loved em. Thinking about cutting out the dump and putting them on the first bend of the x pipe. So the collector is a straight shot out the cut out when open, and it makes the turn to the x pipe when closed.

    What brand is that one?
