got some stuff in the works so figure id post up now. Besides V.A. does anyone else make turbo headers that keep the stock alt. in place and still has good plug/wire placement? Or anyone find any other stock manifolds that work better?

WORTH EVERY PENNY
i dont doubt that one second but i just cant justify that price when others can be had for $1400. Just seein what all is out there because, like ShearFab, iv never knew they made stuff. Just checking all my options before i do somethin ya know.

+1 for Josh @ KYTP. He did my kit and headers about a year ago. No cracks or leaks and thats with street driving and well over 100 1/4 passes.

Has anyone looked at the ls3 camaro manifolds? They seem to look like they would provide a way around the factory alternator.

Also those running manifold front mounts with a mild steel crossover pipe, how are your crossover pipes holding up? Mig welds, vibration and heat seems like a cracked pipe waiting to happen?

I tried a set as soon as I seen them. Steering shaft is the main issue on the driverside. They would be perfect if not for that though.

Well dangit haha. I tried. I've already got 6.0 manifolds so that's what I'll be using. I don't care to relocate the alternator, it's not that big of a deal.

2.5 or 3" crossover pipe for a t6 flange big single big cube setup?

Proper mig welds on mild steel hold up way better then the stainless I have seen going around. The thermal expansion properties are much better with mild steel.
