304 Edelbrock Shorty Headers & 4WD Hardware Y-Pipe

I did a search on the forum and found discussions on Headers and Y-Pipes for the 304 but did not find this specific info. I wanted to pass this on in case anyone was considering this type of exhaust. Thanks.


This Y-Pipe fits my 79 CJ7 304 and works fine with the Edelbrock Shorty Headers:

4WD Hardware - Front Exhaust Pipe by Dynomax

Front Exhaust Pipe by Dynomax and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH1



These are the Headers I used with the Y-Pipe:

Edelbrock 65912 - Edelbrock Shorty Headers - Ceramic Coated

Edelbrock 65912 - Edelbrock Shorty Headers - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Damn, you got my hopes up!. I have a T-176 tranny, and that Y-pipe only fits the 3 speed transmission. I thought maybe you found a way around that.

My 7 has the 3-speed. Not certain about a 7 with the T-176. I live about an hour from a 4WD Hardware brick and mortar store so I thought if the Y-Pipe did not work they said I could take it back to the store.

This is exactly what I am looking to do, but I have a 4 speed(T-18). I don't see much difference, but thought I would see what you guys though.

Thanks,

ED

I also am looking to run this type of exhaust. I have fenderwell headers and keep breaking them. I do have the T-18 also but the clearance might not be there for the Y-pipe to travel under the trans.

So, I started to look up the price for the headers, they are discontinued... I guess it is time to start hunting down some manifolds..

I know i was disappointed to find that out too. I did find some on ebay a few weeks ago, although they had the pipes for the AIR injection...even those went for like 400 or something.

Same problem here 360/727 I have the edelbrock shorty's tricoat (also discontinued) looks the same set up as the op with different pn #65913.
tried to find reducers for them but all are three hole so far, and the shorties were set up to mate with the 2 bolt stock flanges (rep said), which looks like they did well with the op's Y pipe.

Anyone with v8/727 have any luck with exhaust. My local shop did not like it and seemed not very interested in doing it ie $700-$750 for the job, 2x Flomaster mufflers/ pipe and labor. Thought it was too high and moved on for othe solutions.
