Default Found a good deal on some up and forward turbo headers

Last winter, I struggled mightily to get the twin GT35's ready for this past Spring and Summer but with family, weather and work, though I got close, I punted and put the single PT7576 back in. Well, Winters around the corner( dammit) so I'm gathering thoughts and lists of to-do's etc for resuming the twins.

Late last week, I was flipping thru facebook and this ad popped up regarding some brand new, in box up and forward LS turbo headers. Complete with 3" V-band clamps, header bolts and gaskets. I don't even know for sure if they'll fit in the confines but for $120, I'm willing to give it a shot and make some changes if needed to make them work, if they're close.

Last winters setup:




The new up and forwards manifolds...

Look exactly like the ones I had on the 68 in 2016 and 2017. They worked fine. Good price too. Mine were around $160 from Ebay.

If you are bored tomorrow night you should swing over to the Valley. A couple of friends and I are heading over to make some shakedown passes!

I started with a similar set of headers also, holding up well so far.

Thanks guys!
Ratical, sounds good! Hope to be over there. I live in East Chatham, so I'm within what, 15 minutes of the track? My new (replacement) differential should be here soon. I'll have to break in the gears for 300 miles first but then hope to be back to racing.

Very cool. Just walk on over and say hello! My Camaro and my buddies snakeskin green 71 Dart with carbon fiber billboard stripe will be parked together.

A couple of heat cycles and those gears will be good! Drag cars don't wait 300 miles!!!!

Well, tried them but they don't fit
I was thinking that maybe if I dropped the engine from the bottom, put them on, then raised the engine, they *might* fit but I'm not ready to test that as yet. Still finishing the twin turbo install first.
