That's what I was thinking. It's only been about 2 weeks since they were supposed to send me a call tag to return them for comparison with their assembly jig - lol. Just a little frustrating...
Believe me, I'm tempted... just after I chop them up into a bunch of little pieces.Send them back COD.
Everything sits level. The K-member is straight. If I bolt them up to the block sitting on the stand, they are just as uneven. I'm already running convertible mounts - don't want to use solid drop mounts.is the motor level in the car ? the only other thing I can think of is would lower motor mounts give you the clearance you need ? might be easier than send the headers back... If I recall you can get 3/4 of a inch with drop mounts..
Can you do me a favor and post a picture of the passenger side header? I would like to compare it to mine.They are just collecting dust now along with the matching Prochamber.
Good luck to you.
Thank you!I'll get you a pic later today along with a height measurement from flange to collector.
It makes no sense to me why they would design them that way. If you look at the trans crossmember, the notch for the exhaust tubing is higher on the passenger side than on the other - maybe that has something to do with it. If so, the collectors still won't sit level and that's not a good thing for making a prefab h-pipe of any brand bolt up properly. Why can't this stuff just fit right to begin with? It's not like we're dealing with thousandths of an inch here. It's sad the mac longtubes are the only swap headers which will clear a t sump pan, otherwise I would have bought a set from hooker.My BBK 351w swap long tubes hit the floor by the firewall on the passenger side, but the driver side is fine. I wonder why it seems that most 351w swap long tubes do this?
Hmmm... my pass side one looks totally different! What part number are those?Here is the pic. I get about 12 1/4 inches drop from the flange to the top of the collector (meaning the 2 bolt flange). Hope this helps.
The flange isn't welded in place. It just slides over the collector piping. The collector itself hits the floor board.TF 2016. Just a thought here, would it help if the collector flange was turned 90* and then reattached? I would figure the flange is what you're having the clearance problem with due to that being the highest point there. How much drop do you measure?
I'd rather dent the collector than beat on the chassis. To me it's more of an issue having the collectors uneven, turning x-pipe fitment into a difficult hack job,You could always do a floorboard massage. I recall having to do a little beating.
Didn't get a measurement yet. They are in the box on the way to mac.Did you get a drop measurement? Are yours 1 3/4? Mine are 1 5/8 which may make for different routing of the primaries than yours.
That's sad to hear. At least they were talking to you.This is pretty much the same experience I had with them. I went to BBB and did a terrible review and they tried to defend themselves with the same BS they said to me in correspondence. Hope it works out better than mine did. Good luck.
