I Did A Search, I've Tryed Three Differance Brands Of Headers. They Are Coated And Going Into A Blower Motor Setup For Parking Lot Show, So I Don't Want To Hammer On Them If I Can Help It. I Was Hoping Someone Has Found A Set That Would Bolt Right In.

Ok Maybe I Found The Problem, Didn't Know The Motor Mount Brackets Are Differnt Left To Right. That Moved The Motor Over 3/4 Inch Away From A/c Box.

Previous owner of mine hacked out a piece of the heater box so the headers could clear. I cut a piece of sheet metal and pop riveted to the inside of the piece, then used some high temp silicone to seal it.
