    Very pleased with the quality and fit of the Dynatech header. Had Headman ceramic coated headers on the 350 and these blow them away at $469 to Headmans $609!

    Did the new mill effect your ride height any?

    Welding up new collectors. Had to adjust the Pypes X pipe back about 5 inches.

    Keeping the Borla's! The sound good-not loud. Curious to see what they will sound like with this new LS engine!

    Car looks pretty flat with no hood or wheels!

    I'm giving the stock wheels to Bill since he has done so much extra work for me and letting me work in his back bay area. I'll put on the stock 15x7 size old school Cragars and go 225/70r/15's all the way around.

    Cleand up the rear end with his air sander. Satin paint- looks miles better!

    Sorry, I thought you went with an all aluminum LS, was just wondering if the nose would sit higher with the new motor.

    Yeah- this is the LY6 6.0 iron block. Will be lighter in the nose, heads, a/c compressor and engine moved back, but I doubt it will make much if any difference.

    Where did you buy your headers? I take it from your post, you like the fit with no issues? I am getting ready to buy mine soon and am looking for the best header for the best money.

    Car is looking awesome.....cant wait to see it done.

    Thanks and yes these headers look and fit soooo much better than the ceramic coated Headman headers I had. I bought these from Gearhead off ebay. Price seems to have gone up. Somewhere back in this thread I put what I paid- I'm thinking $580, they are now $609 but I would still pay that. They are sweet and you'll love them!
