    Can’t argue that point. Trying to keep everything original was the Intent. It ends up being twice as expensive and difficult to find and restore to original. So I have taken some liberties. Guess the mini starter isn’t a bad trade off.

    Do the Dynatechs require a mini-starter? That looks like a manual trans so I’m guessing no issues with the Z bar?

    Not sure if it's "required" I never tried an original starter . I much rather use a mini starter anyhow .

    Dynatech recommends the 1-7/8" for 425 HP & above. They say they fit with straight or angled heads, auto or manual and with A/C. Website doesn't say anything about starter clearance. Why do you prefer the mini ? Never considered needing a mini until finding out the clearance issues with some of these headers.

    Also been researching the different threads regarding coatings versus wraps. Any of you guys Jet-Hot (or similar) your headers? The Jet-Hot claims are quite impressive for heat control and HP gain.
