Another day, a little more accomplished. Pulled the old Hooker 1 7/8ths headers off. Slapped some paint on them and sold them locally.
The new TSP setup, 2" header with a 3.5" collector. That means I'm making a new Y pipe.
Ordered up some random pipe pieces and clamps.
In this picture you can see the Howe racing merge, 3.5 to 5 inch, and my old 4" bullet muffler I plan on reinstalling.
This merge obviously was too big so I ended up cutting it back about 3 inches so it would mate up with 4 inch pipe.
Here is the completed Y pipe and merge.
Had it coated with high temp powder.
The red valve covers had seen better days so I decided to change the color scheme up some on the top side.
Blasted them in the cabinet.
Same wheel graphite color that went on the intake.
Here are the packs and brackets. I touched up the red on the coils, blasted and painted the brackets graphite, and added stainless allen head bolts to hold the coils down. I also re-wrapped the tape around the harness.
And my final surprise, 10 gallons of MS109. Gonna see if it picks up anything after being retuned for this fuel. Results soon!.
