    Is there anything in particular you're looking for? Here's a random one of mine from 10 years ago:

    did those long tube headers work my long tube headers which are the same one in the picture would not work they would not clear the flaming river steering shaft along with the firewall on the passenger side the only difference was i had a c4 transmission i just bought bbk ceramic shorty header so hopefully those will work

    I didn't have any major header clearance problems with those headers which are BBK swap headers. They wouldn't clear the stock rag joint but once I switched to the flaming river shaft it was fine. They are really close to the very bottom of the firewall on the passenger side but do clear. I'm also running solid motor mounts, don't know if that helps or not. I'm running a T5 but can't see where the transmission would be a problem. I did have some problems with clutch cable clearance that would be avoided with an auto. Switching to the MM clutch cable which is longer helped with that.

    Not to jack the thread, but mmb617 I am going to do a 351 swap with the BBK headers. I was wondering if you dropped the engine in with the headers on or if that's even possible?

    Yes, I've had the engine out multiple times and always left the headers on as there is so little clearance to get at the header bolts once the engine is in place.

    I start it in with a lot of downward angle and level it once the headers start under the firewall.

    You race that with a stock bellhousing??? I have a scattershield on mine and I've only made about 10 passes in it! lol

    Mine still has all the factory accessories, including a/c. Is there any problem shoe horning it in with the headers on and the a/c lines or anything?

    Anyone who has been around a clutch when it decides to scatter can respect the thought of having a shield. I scattered one after routine clutch maintenance about the first time I let out on the clutch. trashed the input shaft on the T5, etc. Lucky nothing broke my bellhousing or.... me.
