Patriot sent me 2 possible parts:
H8021-1 But states for Auto Floor Mt
H8056-1 For floor 4 speeds??

Anybody have any experience with these headers, especially the fit question.
Thanks, Ken

I installed the H8047-1. I cant speak for the quality of the coating yet but the fit was awesome. I had angle heads which was already a problem, manual steering, and floor shift auto trans. I was shocked by how well they fit. Check out my build link, page 7 in my signature. Nothing came close to touching. Additionally the collector flange doesn't hit the floorboard or hang to low. They are the same height as the sub-frame.

Yes, floor or column. Not compatible with manual transmission.
