    Cad. Co. Headers

    Is anyone running a set of Cad Co, headers. I'm having trouble getting the drivers side one to clear the stearing box.

    Terrible no I did not. They were for a truck but Cad Co. agreed to swap them out. Basically the passengers side if laid side by side looks the same. The drivers side for the truck comes further back before turning down and that is what puts it into the steering the box. The correct one dumps earlier, similar to a block hugger but not one if that makes sense. Chris at Cad Co. was great. The only reason I'm exchanging both is that the coatings are a little different, two different coating companies, and I wanted a matched set.

    The first picture is of the first set I got. You can see how long it is. The second picture is of the set they are sending. There is a big difference in the length. I don't think I'll have anymore problems.

    Re: Cad. Co. Headers

    Do those fit the stock exhaust system, or do you have to go by a muffler shop afterwards?
    Pics aren't loading for me

    Re: Cad. Co. Headers

    Don't know about the stock exhaust working. I doubt it. Yes I got them on ebay for $450.00. $495.00 is the cost at Cad Co. uncoated. The ones I'm trading and receiving are both ceramic coated. That is an additional $200.00. Also You will have to add an aftermarket tranny crossmember if going with dual exhaust. The stock one does not have the "hump" on the passengers side for the pipe. I think that piece is around $235.00 but that includes shipping. Also from Cad Co. Talked with Chris at Cad Co. and he believes the ones I am returning are for a Firebird/Trans Am or Truck app. They plan on using them to create a jig so they can produce more since they no longer had any and the jig was long gone. After creating the jig they plan on selling them perhaps as blems depending on how damaged they are from the jigging process. My new ones are in Tennesse as we speak. I know this by Fed Ex tracking. My exhaust man is gone racing all weekend so by the time they get here(hopefully by Monday) he should be back. At this point all the hard work like getting the old manifolds off, getting the motor jacked up to drill out 2 studs that broke is done. He should be able to bolt them in run the pipes install my Flowmasters and I'll be good to go. Them I'll bring it home jack it up and put it on jack stands and remove the wheels, take them to the local tire shop and have them switch the tires over to my brand new Keystone Klassics and I'll be good to go. Going to a huge car meet and swap this morning in Daytona. Hoping to find an intake and maybe some other goodies.
