Default A&C headers

Does anybody who owns an A&C kit know what the difference is between the driver and passenger side headers are? Both headers I have look the same.

I don't understand the question. They are mirror images. The rear cylinders are the ones that neck in tight. Are you wondering about the stagger of the cylinders? I think the body is slotted large enough to accommodate on mine. One side is tighter to the front of the opening. The other is tighter to the back.

Based on the offset of pipe exit it looks like the left goes on the right and the right goes on the left.

I bought these quit awhile ago and I remember speaking with Joe, he said to make sure to use the passenger side header for your measurement when placing the engine in the frame. I just wanted to make sure the way the headers are in the picture are the way they go on the engine.

The passenger side of the engine is about 3/4" ahead of the driver's side. You want the pipes to exit at the same place on both sides, whichever way gives you that is correct.

They may be upside down in the picture.

The pipes next to your shoes tuck in tight. I expect that is to clear the foot boxes. The other end looks to me like they would hit the foot box. Assuming some strange camera angle is not causing me to misinterpret what I am seeing.

When I built my A&C, I received 2 of the same side header. (can`t remember which side it was right off hand)
I contacted Joe (when he running the business) and explained my dilemma.
he told me to send him the header that needed to be modified.
I did and I think I got it back within a week.

I just received my A&C header last week. Took forever due to the COVID pandemic, but worth the wait. I sent back the ones I bought from Shell Valley, the A&C are much better made. Here is a couple of pictures of the way they should be installed. The rear exhaust are more curved than the front. This is for more clearance from the foot box.
