Re: CHI heads and hedders question
I just fitted some 1 7/8 headers with 3.5" collectors on my Aussie Falcon with CHI 225's.
It was a tight fit on the drivers side, but just squeezed in. Just put the gearbox in and I have about 1/3" clearance under the crossmember on one side and the other is just touching. Looks like I'll have to get that collector bent down a little, so no real big problem. This is why I didn't want to go getting them all Jet-hot coated and then have to play around afterwards.
That's with a TKO box and I am running a 1" spacer under the gearbox to raise it up, so if it was all stock, they would fit perfect. But I'm sure where's it's at now is the same as a C4/Toploader so that's one spot to look out for.
I think Brenx had to bend his down too? He's running a Powerglide.
