Im keeping the 4 cyl for now. I decided not to go 8 because it was cheaper to say with the 4.

But here are a couple of fab pics when i was making it ...

Thats honestly impressive at how close you where able to come to the frame without touching all the while keeping form and function. Impressive!

SPEED SAFE, NICK

It actually looks real close in the picture but its got like 3/8" clearance ..

Thanks for the props though..

These log headers work real well. I changed over from a real 1 7/8" tube header with 3 1/2" collector pushing 40 psi to this log and it made NO decrease in power what so ever.. These logs are also more universal for fitting different body/frame styles.. All you guys will be very happy with them if you ask me...

Finally received my Turbo manifolds and I am more than impressed with the quality of the welds and overall look... The ceramic coatings look amazing as well!!!

The only unfortunate part of receiving these is the fact that It will be well over a year before they get used.... Just like any build, it all comes together in the end.

SPEED SAFE, NICK

Looks great, awesome to see a bolt on, affordable V band for the Pontiacs. Would like to see any future GTO cross over for a single turbo and down pipe and the twin turbo down pipes.

Sure,

These are the best I could get with the poor lighting I have around my home... I can take better pics tomorrow...

I honestly think they look great inside and out.

I have purchased shorty's and long tube headers from big name manufactures that honestly looked like crap... Gibson is the first one to come to mind...

That looks very nice for the price. Also being a thick wall stainless, its not going to develop leaks like a SS tubular headers would. Almost bought one but I already have a complete system. Its going to be more turbo Pontiacs next year!!!

Thanks, they look great! Wish they were around for d ports 6 years ago. That was the worst part of going turbo at the time.

So has any determination been made if these manifolds will work with a serpentine system such as the March setup?
