Mods...


Can this be moved to P&B.


Also who else has run headers on the 4T60E? I think 95nasta had TOGS on his... I am curious to see if this is only with pacesetter headers or not.

Connector came out easily in my hand. I think the clip melted too.

As for the headers I don't see how then can be modified. Any and all ideas will be very appreicated. And I am enteraning the idea of buying used tog headers if it will give me more clearence with the connector if nothing can be done to these.

Does it appear that a modifed connector or maybe specifically the pins only could be used and still supply some space?

How about making a dollar coin size dent in the header to make more clearance too?

That is another method. however that would create a restriction and being at the flange...it may bend and cause a leak.

Thats a hell of a spot right near the flanges. I can't think of anything that doesn't require major modification of those headers And I thought I was in a pickle with my TOGs a few weeks ago.

Heres a pic of how close the flange comes to the connector on the 60-e. It might look like it'* touching, but there is a little room there and could be more. It'* just matter of rotating the flanges.

The flanges on the pacesetter'* don't rotate.

They'll have to be cut off and re-welded at a different rotation angle.

Yep. They don't rotate. The welds are pretty visible in the pics.

The OP had pmed me asking to post pics of my TOGs with the 60e.
