    Thank you all for your input and guidance!! I think in the end, I’ll search for a set of HP Manifolds. The engine is out of the car and the front clip is also off, so I don’t believe installing the engine with manifolds will be an issue. Thanks again for the great advice and not going hard on this kid who’s still got so much more to learn! Y’all are the best

    More than anything, I was going for a cool appearance factor and for the sound of the exhaust but I guess that’s really in the mufflers! I’m thinking of doing a 20 to 24 inch glasspack with chrome pencil tip pipes

    Other than the wheels and the mirror on the door, that looks like a car I delivered to San Clemente in Feb '18. Car came out of Iowa/Omaha Neb area.

    One of my cars has spongy springs and sits level like your car. I wanted the jacked up rear end initially, but I've since fallen in love with the low look of the car. Do what you want and enjoy it, it can all be undone if wanted.

    Wow! That DOES look like the Impala sitting in that shop! Also, I'm glad that you can appreciate how cool these cars look when they are lowered. I always say, it makes them look longer and it really accentuates the body lines and just showcases the overall beautify of the car itself! Paired with a set of some awesome wheels and a sick paint job with a beautiful interior, it's definitely a way of letting people know how beautiful our C Bodies can be!

    I installed long tube (TTI) and without the benefit of a lift, it was a much larger project than I anticipated requiring right side torsion bar removal and engine mounts to be un bolted for drivers side access and starter removal and reinstallatuon as well as new spark plug wires and after market looms. The finished product looks awesome but knowing now what a project it was/is, I would NOT recommend headers unless you're running after market heads (which I am) and they were necessary for the larger exhaust ports. Stock heads did not provide a large enough mating surface for the ports and I was constantly blowing through exhaust gaskets because of the mismatched sizing.

    I put a pair of Schumacher Creative Services short headers on my 76 New Yorker. Very nice pieces but a little pricey. They fit well with the only mod so far is a new dip stick / tube. Although it looks like Andrew did nicely without even that. The headers themselves are not noisy, but a put too aggressive sounding mufflers on it. I ready need to take the muffler noise down a peg.

    Very nice job, looks great. Love the wire looms. Is that your making or a kit?

    I bought the kit but engineered the studs elevating the looms away from the valve covers. Stock, they would clamp directly to the valve cover and it put the wires too close to the exhauat.

    Installed TTI headers on my 470 Stroker, into my 68 Imperial Crown Coupe without any issues. Took the core support out, and installed in through the front. Cleared fine.
    Only recommendation I would give, install your motor mounts on your engine, before you put motor back in.
