For those of you thinking of using felpro exhaust gaskets... DONT DO IT!!! They are crap Garbage POS gaskets. I was about ready to nickname my car the popcorn machine due to the popping during de acceleration... then I noticed the horrible exhaust leaks. I will try the remflex gaskets. They are in the photo...Ill keep you posted. I needed to remove my side pipes anyway to have them re coated. The ceramic coat job that I had done TWICE was terrible. I am having them done a third time WTF!!!!

Yes, felpros leak. Instead, try the Copper SCE 4034 gaskets. And, an old trick is to use two on each side. Yep, two on each side. And make sure the primary pipes are perfectly flat and true as well.:cool:

I use the copper SCE gaskets too (but only one per side). I highly recommend them.

OK, but at least put a straight edge across the primary flanges to see if they're true.;)

all done... this photo is right before I removed the billboards. Installed Avons.

That looks real good. Are the primaries still poppin'?:confused:

ERA 626 05-25-2021 05:37 PM

I removed the pipes to have them re coated and I am replaceing the gaskets with the copper ones. I am hoping this will solve the poppin issue.

Are you curtis? with the black SPF with white stripes? I saw your car at the car show saturday... I looked for you and could not find you.

I took my pipes to Caps in fresno, if you go there make sure you tell them about me. They will remember me I had to have my pipes recoated because the first product they put on them was not good. They re did my pipes this time very nice and NO CHARGE...

yes!!! It turned out to be a setting in the mega squirt. Unchecked a box and fixed it 95% of the popping is gone. I am still playing with the fuel table and ignition tables to get it right...

In #142 photos it appears that each header pipe has an outer pipe and inner pipe. I can see on #50 the ends of the side pipes.I'm assuming that the end of the side pipes go up in between these. Does the end of the side pipe seal on the ends of each pipe up inside? Any type of copper gasket that goes in there? Do they seal well enough for the EFI to not let any O2 in?
Thanks,
Mike

I assume you are referring to the headers that index into the side pipes? yes they seal extremely well, so well that once they are installed it is a real PITA to remove them...

This is something I wish I did on my ERA, just a quick trip to tap plastics.

I also spent $1200 getting Clear Bra done on the front end and in front of the rear fenders as well.
