if the problem was right where they met up you could take them apart and use a dremel to sand off whatever is necessary.

Not headers. Not even close. Tubular manifolds are a totally different animal.

But nonetheless, you're right. It was jr's3800 that first discovered this as far as I know. Not all are the same. He has pics, and did fix his.

his posts on the topic should be somewhere in this forum. Try doing a search for them with JR as the author.
