Can I yank my five speed with the Mac long tubes still installed? Clutch is bad and it looks like it is going to be tight. Fingers crossed headers were a pita even with tubular k.

Thanks in advance

Should be able to. MAC's are one of the few brands I've heard that still allow trans removal without removing the headers.

edit: I have a friend who had MAC longtubes on his 2v and he dropped the tranny several times without removing the headers.

I have them, I would say you could get the 5 spd. out without fulling removing either side header, but it looks like it would be much easier to just loosen the passenger side to allow enough "wiggle" to give more clearance. I would be weary of going Mac again, my driver side header flanges were warped and straight up didn't mate up with the factory bolt holes. I had to bore out the holes in the DS header to install them. These were bought brand new also.
edit: one of the posts says otherwise, that you can infact drop the tansmission without touching the headers.

On the other hand, they're the best sounding headers without a doubt.'

So that's a definite yes u can get the tranny out without removing them? I have been wondering this as well and this has been all that's kept me from getting a stall and putting it in...

kooks or arh are the beswt sounding headers:)
Probably, because the only cars that have them are usually high powered and well built. Not very often you see arh's or kooks on a 2v. Cobra's, however, are a different story; many kooks/arh setups.
