Yikes. You may want to lose the header wrap. There are mountains of testimonials about the wrap causing headers and manifolds to crack.

Use a coating (ceramic) instead.

Quick search for you:

off topic but jshelton54, it looks like you still have the stock front motor mount on your car.
have you seen how much your motor moves with the stock mount ?
you can make a solid mount real cheap if you want to. your car will like the solid mount.
OK, back on topic.
your headers look good , what type of power gain did you get and at what RPM did
you see that gain.
Thanks

Thank you for the pictures , I am glad some one put these on the G/H-body. Gives me hope that my install will go well. How long did it take you to do the install?

Yeah, I am interested in the motor mount. I know you use hockey pucks but I haven't seen a picture on how to do this. Got one?

Haven't tuned it or anything yet. Didn't have time to do it yesterday after the install at midnight so I am just taking it easy right now. But I could feel the increase in power just slowly accelerating.

Haro, If you buy them, go coated. I wish I would have. If you can get past the slip fit issues they are a good value as far as headers go.

Jared, get that header wrap off there ASAP before you crack those.

Get the same header coating I got. DIY.

Thread for 2ks

I just did something similar on my 98 but used polyurethane suspension bushings. I have pictures on page 2

Glad we finally had someone try the "Pacesetters" and pleased to hear they fit decently. So, exactly what (if any) modifications were needed for the install?

May be harder or easier for us..... remember he'* Y2K+, but still probably a fairly similar install -maybe easier considering there is more room on the rear of the engine bay to get at the rear header IIRC.

i did not make mine out of hockey pucks, and i have over 100K on my mount.
you can make one (solid mount) its so simple
i like the fact that no one who has built a solid mortor mount has taken it out and said H*** NO WORST MOD I EVER DID !
i like mine (110,000+ miles on it). lift the hood, rock the car(back and forth) in park, see all that movement
that is not good for all the fule lines, electrical lines, exhaust pipe, so on and so on.
it will also help the torque steer. it will help put the power to the ground.
i made a 3" wide motor mount for my car, but i made a 2 1/2" wide motor mount for a friend and it works just as GOOD.
we used a 2 1/2" hole saw and cut holes (wafers) out of the sidewall of an old truck tire. cost for his solid mount $0.00 and he has 40,000 miles with out any problems.
if i had to make a new one for my car i would use the wafers made out of the sidewall of an old truck tire.
the distance between the top of the BOTTOM cross member and the bottom of the TOP
motor mount bracket is 3 5/8".
