    the engine originally had cast iron manifolds so i just gave em the ones that used to be in my car. right now hes on a budget so im trying to give em as much stuff as i can get, i got some longtube headers from a 68 mustang but i doubt theyll work and theyll definitely be a pain in the ass to install , so for now those headers will work.

    On my 84 I put stock manifolds from a 93 on it along with an H-pipe and dynomax mufflers and it really woke up that car. I was in High school and had basically no money. The exhaust was 10 times better than the stock 84 single exhuast.
