Default A&C headers

Finally got my engine back from the dyno shop and got it mounted into the frame along with the trans. I went to put my side pipes on and noticed the driver's side side pipe points straight to the ground. It takes a lot of force to get the side pipe to sit level. The passenger side went on straight and didn't require any force to sit level. not sure if this is a problem with the header or the engine placement. I did double check and the engine is sitting level and the passenger side header measured 22 1/2" like it should.

I was having problem with the headers I bought from Shell Valley. The Driver side header and side pipe would turn into the cars frame and you could not pull it out to straighten the side pipe out. I sent them back 3 times and each one was worse than the other. So I bought a set from Ron at A&C and they fit way better than the Shell Valley headers. In the next few weeks Im going to install the body on frame and see how the headers are going to exit the car. If all is good then its cutting time for the headers exits on the body. One other thing I did was to make sure that my motor was level side to side and front to back. I also did the 22.5in from the front rail of the cross frame to the center of the two header port on the passanger side heads. It all seems to have worked out so far.
