Well the tranny dipstick ended up coming out way off to the right. Looks downright ridiculous..LOL!! Hopefully the w-body dipstick looks better.

We had a bit of a fitment problem linig up the front header to the front crossover. But after a little bit of finagling everything lined up smoothly.

Hey taylor...did merlins weld in the cat to a 3" pipe? and than weld the flex to it? 60.oo isnt bad for all that work.


Gimme a call later about ATAP'ing the car.

It'* looking very good Taylor!!! I ordered a W-body dipstick tube today, just in case I'll need it as I'm not sure if the 97 and 2001 tubes are the same or not.

Cheers,

Not much to show other than It didn't fit, hit the headers, my old man had a pipe bender in the garage and after couple of bends it fits, but the clamp to bolt it in had to be cut off, so now just zip-tied. We didn't leave the front heatshield on. Thinking about gettting some boot protectors though, those TOG'* get HOT!!!
Enjoy the look of that shiney pipe because very soon it will heat tint like your Cat.

The tube fit is normal and is common to GTP cars as well. If it was the right replacement tube, it needs to be bent a little away from the cross over pipe....make double sure that it doesn't touch at all or you will get false knock.....you also need to bend the clamp flange a little and open up the hole a bit, then the original bolt will work.
Yes it is also very close now to the brake reservoir but easily withdrawen.
NOTE: The level indication is different, so you need to fill it to the top or it will be down a pint. Make sure you compare the two stick lengths in the tubes / relative to the engine position. About 3/8" different....but it'* in my old "header install" posts.

I think that the shiney ceramic coating is a little warmer than the flat finish due to increased reflectivity. 450 F is cold compared to 700 F.

Notice the heat tint discoloration. :(
The SS flanges were coated with silver heat paint by the welder to hide his shamefull weld job.

Here'* how my stock tranny tube is attached, you can see the crazy bend I put in it to stay clear. Dosen't hit at all, but won't bolt in. STILL WAITING for my W-body one.
