Check out the front manifold on this engine:

Looks like an actual header... I've never seen these before.

That'* what my car had, in '87. Tube headers I heard they flowed better than the newer style LN3 headers.

Sure looks like they would flow better.

Would those fit on an LN3?

I think just about all 3.8 H and C bodies through 88 Vin 3, not sure about Vin B ...

I forget weather or not the 3.0 V6 in the H bodies used that manifold..

this is very interesting! and a new possible upgrade. I wonder if the rear manifold would fit the newer header pipe

Does the LN3 have the uneven port spacing like that?
