I can see the rub mark in the dirt around the steering shaft. Iím gonna pull it and pound it soon. Hopefully this weekend.

While you're under there, can you get a pic of how the driver side header is routed by the oil filter?

Thanks, that works. I've seen pics over the years that showed more clearance to the oil filter (or, more specifically, the take-off port above the oil filter) with the B&Bs than with Kooks. Makes me wonder if I could've gone with B&Bs 5 years ago instead of doing the modified JBA Camaro shorty headers to get me the clearance I was looking for.

I dunno that cooler tap/manifold thing you have seems like it would even hit these. I wouldn’t have noticed if you didn’t ask but they really do try to avoid the oil filter area.

Took a second look. I think you could dent a tube to clear it. Wouldn’t be awful.
