Not what I said at all.

Get non Tog or non Pacesetter headers and you sould be fine. The flanges they had stuck down and got close to the connector. I actually redid a connector for the Pacesetter guy in the picture and the trans was fine. I used JB weld as a shield for the wires.

oh, ok. So I heard alot about speed daddy. Would these, (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/GRAND...item27baa3d1ec) be good? Sorry for being slow but I'm a electrical guy not so much mechanical, and never really got into performance much.

Those should be OK, welding the joint there would help.

I know a few that have welded them, no problems, until you want to remove them.

On speed daddy'*, if you buy them. Consider replacing the flex with a dual wall interlocked one (ZZP or ebay) then get 2 2.25" and 2 3.00" clamps from FrozenBoost.com for $5 each, you are all set for the install on a W body. Add in a dipstick tube and O2 wire extender and the Bonne shouldn't be an issue.

I've never welded headers. Only ones I've commonly heard of being welded were pacesetters.

You will need the 3" diamater. Yes, that'* the one.
The clamps are from Frozenboost.com you need 2 x 2.25" and 2 x 3.00"

Ok, just ordered. Thanks. I realized the crossover pipe was oem and probably wouldn't work with the aftermarket exhaust.

So you are suggesting that I cut off the flex pipe and weld the zzp one on in its place?
