Headers came in. Not as huge of an improvement as I was hoping on the drivers side. At least it isn't sitting on the control arm anymore. Worst case I can probably cut and reweld the #1 primary to come up at more of an angle before it turns to the rear.

I can fit both headers in without having to lift the engine or anything stupid like that. I need to get new hardware as the original nuts rusted to the studs. Fortunately every single one of them screwed out and I don't have to drill/tap any of them






Pass side, although clearance wasn't bad on this side with the manifold.






In other news, I ordered a wheel to experiment on. 18x8 steelie off of the current Taurus/Explorer police interceptors. I'm hoping to recenter it to get the backspace I need without needing spacers or adapters as it is the correct lug pattern already.
