    They exhaust manifolds are polished stainless steel from Speedway, part # 9300304. I used a 3" 90 degree SS pipe welded to the supplied flange and then welded on a 3" SS expansion joint before downsizing to 2-1/2" pipe for the remainder of the exhaust. Used Borla Pro XS mufflers from Summit Racing.

    The manifolds will discolor fairly quickly, but there really is not way to prevent this.

    I saw your pictures of the steering setup and noticed the great set of headers on your LS. Would you be kind enough to tell me the brand and part #. I have a list of headers that are supposed to fit, but your quality and fit seam better. I am using an LS3 with Unisteer and need a good fitting header.

    Thanks
