Default Re: PACESETTER HEADERS WRONG

Got a picture of where they are hitting? Do you have dog-bones comming off the top of the motor to the radiator support? I'm wondering how they can hit an engine mount (just looking at the online photo of the pipes.)

These have been installed before... I believe some grinding will make them work, as well as a W-body transmission dipstick tube, or bending your original.

Welp, calm down. Summit only has two flavors of these pipes, coated and non-coated. They list the applications they fit, and a Bonneville ain't one of them.

Like was just said, time for a little re-engineering to alter the mount and give the pipes the room they need.

Just about any headers for any car on the market are going to require some work to make them fit. I had to remove that strut on my car to get my TOGs to fit.

As my dad says "It'* not race unless it gives you problems"

Ed

[edit] This might help you out some or give you some ideas.

You have to remove that Strut part on that front motor mount. All 96-99 Bonnevilles will have that problem when installing headers. But then you have to strengthen that mount once the strut has been removed.
