'88 manifolds on a '76?

I want to convert my single draft hole into a MC 2100 project. Would a set of '88 intake/exhaust manifolds do the trick for me? Smog?

They can work. You'll need shorter bolts and if you have power steering one of our pump brackets will need to be clearanced.

I have no idea what your smog requirements are so I can't comment on that.

The exhaust manifold juts out (for lack of a better description) further away from the head than the stock one does. You have to cut away part of one bracket for this.

I thought you had a bracket for sale when you said "our" and "clearanced".

That should have said your, not our. I didn't even notice that.

No problem CSP. Another question, my 76 exhaust manifold is a flush fit (no gasket), will the 88 be the same?

They both can be mounted with a gasket actually. I would recommend a gasket as they can (and usually do) warp some.
