    Ok guys I got these mounted up and YES they are low if your car is lowered but I am going with them. BTW, they are a VERY nice fit and quality....look great. I might have had more issues as my motor sits back further then a normal LS would. Let me know if you have any questions. I can take pics of the other side if you want.

    Sweeeet! Um hello, need more pics of the car! Do you know what oil pan you have and how much below the headers are in relation to the pan? Auto or manual trans? I got these headers to hopefully fit manual clutch linkage.

    the oil pan is off a 2002 camaro. the headers about equal with the pan and cross member. I'll take better pics next week now that they are all bolted up. keep in mind my motor sits back further because I need the maggey sc to fit under the stock hood (just clears). So for me I had to add a 45 fitting to the oil pressure sending unit but the starter does fit in and out without taking off the headers.

    Bo-ing!! whoa, nice ride! From the last picture, looks like the oil pan is about even with the crossmember. That should be a good reference point. I got the 1" set back plates and have heard that it puts the motor pretty close to the bulkhead and even with the crossmember for an f-body pan. I see you have a hydraulic clutch resevoir, was the car an original stick shift car? if so, does it look like the z-bar would clear the headers by looking at the original mounting brackets on the frame?
