you can get edelbrock shorty headers that exit in the stock manifold location. I did that with mine and ran duals with turbos mufflers. sounds throaty but not too loud. I love it. can send a sound clip if anyone's interested.

Sound clip would be great...noneck@comcast.net I am trying todo this on the cheap (go figure) so maybe I'll start off with the cast irons and switch later to the shortys.

Couple quick questions as I muddle thru the 360 conversion. Anyone running the Hedman fender well headers? They are reasonably priced. Will they fit without any modifications to my Jeep more or less? I don't mind bashing the headers in to clearance them, but will not cut my unrusted Jeep for cheap headers! Also I am missing a bunch of accessories for my 360...can I use my water pump pulley and fan from my 258 on my 360? I also need power steering brackets and alternator brackets. Any suggestions? I don;t think my 258 ones will work...

I have always run wheel well headers since early 80's and only had 1 pr that did not fit sent them back to headman and the tubes were bent wrong they sent me a new pair and they fit

water pump and power steering and alternator brackets all have to come off the V-8 motor

fuzz401,

How does this exhaust setup work on the street? I guess what I'm getting at is does the cab suck a lot of fumes in with the top off with the exhaust dumped in front of the rear tires? I like the simplicity of dumping it there but if it affects cab air quality I suppose it's best to send it behind the rear tires.

Thx for looking.

I've never had any problems with fumes from my side pipes either. like fuzz said, sometimes you can smell it a little if it's idling for a while

I forgot about pickups, even though I used to have a J20! Duh. Yup a few junkyard runs are in order.

Can anyone post a picture of the fenderwell headers from underneath? I looked under mine today and can't believe they will fit without cutting the front fenderwells. Maybe I'm missing something, but a picture sure would help. Or you can email it to me to keep it off the forum at noneck@noneckschevelle.com Thanks!!

you have to cut the small flat spots on the bott of the fenders and move the brace on the fender
