Well, after a long time waiting, they finally came in the mail.



I can't wait to get them on so i can drive the car some before it goes off for the winter time.  Just have to drop them off to get ceramic coated this week, then they go on.  I was originally having a problem where the flange between the Alero 3400 manifold and the down-pipe would leak directly on to the steering rack and melt the boot/bushings on it (replaced it 3 times).  This should solve the problem nicely.

agreed.  What brand are those?  They look well made but Im suprised they are made with individual bends.  I like that they use a slip joint.  Just be sure you use anti sieze on that.

J body performance? Looks really nice, show some pics with them installed once you get them powdercoated. Off hand, how much did those set you back?

They're still at Jet Hot right now, they get shipped back to me on monday.  They're being coated with their MC-15 coating which ran me $354 for the three pieces (and an exhaust shield for Dave).

They should be installed hopefully by wednesday sometime.

Not to mention that your turbo probably fit easier..  It looks as if the headers were designed to fit an automatic (or the J-Body engine is in the same spot for AT and MT?).  They conflicted with the steering rack.  It's all better now, just had to modify the center tube on the rear header, still mighty close though.

So you have them installed now Cliff? How's the powerband now?

Will the GT be in storage in MI when we come for the Autoshow?

OK, so here's some updated pics.  Made a new exhaust hanger similar to that of Wicked-IrocZ.

Got some comparisons of the 3100 manifold, 3400 manifold, and header.
