do the 1 5/8's for a stock motor.. you'll loose a noticeable amount of low end with the larger 1 3/4'shey i cant figure out what size of headers to get. example on the sites they'll have a size like 1 5/8 or 1 3/4s . I have a stock 302 in my 89 LX i dont know where to begin..?
Can someone please clarify this for me.
I had a 351w and long tubes, plug changes, easy.A potential issue with long tubes is the clearance and space to get them installed and clearence and spaces left once they are installed. Replacing a starter or doing work on your transmission or motor mounts etc might require a lot more work than if you had shorties. Still doable either way, just pointing that out as a potential negative that you may or may not care about.
