What do these headers tell you?

These are shots of the shorty's on the SBF. This thing hasn't run very much at all- and hasn't really been revved up yet. I'm fairly confident that this is not normal.

It would seem you have a fuel delivery issue, your running way lean on those cylinders.

It going to take some inspection to find the cause.

Too lean (or right) on some and too rich on others I would guess. Old injectors sticking open would be my thought. A leak down on the fuel pressure would tell you. If it drops fast after a shutdown, the injectors could be leaking.

What do the spark plugs tell you from the corresponding cylinders?

Haven't had time to check yet- but since baseball season is over, I got time to do just that. Not sure about this weekend, but I got time since the driveshafts are still on the back porch.
