Looking good, great that you have decided to keep it and get it finished.

Who's making those for you? Should be pretty sweet but I imagine that'd be pretty pricey. FYI, Mac mid-length F-body headers fit AWESOME on LSX CJs and they can be found on ls1tech.com for $100-200:





I got mine for $125 shipped and figured it'd be worth a shot to see how they'd fit.....they're great, especially for the price.

I've seen what John is dealing with. He is correct that there is not enough room for them to fit like normal. Going the right direction with getting these done custom.
