I'm going to start a thread here for the shop car build.
Just finished the merge oval collector for the 2" Tribal Tubes TRI-Y headers.

For those of us not in the loop...PTFB is 'Pro-Touring F-Body'..No?  If so, I have your 1LE Suspension kit and solid body mounts on my '81 TTA project. Happy to see you here!
And...What exactly is PTFB's shop car?

I am not shy about presenting my ignorance when it comes to engines. I have for many years had a question about headers this just may be the right place to ask. Do all of the outlets off the manifold need to be the same length before they hit the straight pipe to allow for even exhaust pressure?

Ideally yes but unfortunately nearly impossible to do withing the constraints of the chassis, I know some manufacturers like to push that button but it is only a marketing point when it comes to street engines.
