    Nice. Any pictures of where the manifold is hitting?

    Here's the driver side. IMG_20180727_071242.jpg No clearance issues at all. And here's the passenger side. It brushes the motor mount and the ear of the manifold hits the control arm mount. IMG_20180727_071324.jpgIMG_20180727_071312.jpg

    Looks like a grinder could address both of those issues without affecting structure. But when you torque the motor while accelerating, it may hit worse.

    Engine masters did a dyno test on headers. What they found, YouTube if you wanna watch, is you can beat the living shit out of a header without hurting its performance. So use a BFH and adjust it til it fits.

    BFH got it real close. I will grind a little bit to make it fit.

    I agree. A little grinding and I'll be happy. Kind of weird the difference on the sides though. Cheap Amazon headers will do that though. I'd rather pay 100$ and have to work to make them for rather than pay 500 from Novak and maybe have them fit perfect.

    Finally getting her all put back together. I got the exhaust manifold on and the passenger side fender on. Now I can mount up the fuse box and my small power distribution center and get the last of my wiring run, wrapped, and sealed up. The engine running isn't too far off but I still need to tap the return line into the gas tank.

    Picked up some steel line, a double flare tool, and a brass fitting. Tonight I think I'm going to tap and run the return like to my gas tank

    Are gas lines double flare like brake lines?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
