Yeah......If you're swapping the heads, why would you put exhaust manifolds back on.......
I was told this by Dan, the owner of CIA who makes the headers, i have no first hand experience.Well, that's just not so.
Dan has to deal with some customers who have ten thumbs and half a clue. A clearance issue is for them is just a tight spot for two-thumbed types. I've got Gen I Tri-Ys on 95 Camaro heads. A couple of the spark plugs are a bit tricky to change, but not a huge deal. If the Gen IIs have better clearance, I say go for it. I'm just sayin' the Gen I version is doable.I was told this by Dan, the owner of CIA who makes the headers, i have no first hand experience.
when i bought my headers from him for my wagon a month or so ago he asked me if i was ever gonna go with Aluminum heads and i said no.
He said: Good, because the angled plugs on aluminum heads creat a clearance issue with Gen 1 tri-y's
he asked because i was contemplating gen 1's or Gen 2's and other than looks i asked for differences.
what's your experience with this? now i'm interested because if the guy who makes the headers is wrong and there is no issue with clearance that opens up my options for going with aluminum ported heads in the next year or so.
