Approximately 5 inches. I am sure I can make it work. I am just worried I am doing something wrong because I am not having the same success others are having with this combination. Thanks again for the help.

OK thanks for the measurement. The 5 inches is at the end of the collector adapter or the header without the collector ?? I'm just wondering if a muffler shop would have enough room to make a slight bend in the pipe to go under the x member.

You will need the Holley slip on collector adapter: https://www.holley.com/products/exha...parts/42107HKR

The 5 inches is at the end of the collectors. I not sure if there is enough room or not. I think they would have to bend the collector adapter.

Re: Help

These are pics of a BBC Manual x member. Although it's not a TKO, it shows that the member gets up closer to the body. This was the same style xmember I used for my T56 in my Chevelle with a 454....

Re: Help

Ok if your O2 sensors are in the collector as opposed to the reducer it no prob for a good muffler shop to do a slight S bend so the exhaust pipe goes under the X.

I just took my buddy's 69 to my exhaust guy Thursday to do almost the exact same thing on his.

Came out great.

Donny,
Sorry about the late response. The short answer is no, not yet. The car is in the paint shop again.

The long answer is I am not sure I would have it figured out even if I had the car back from the paint shop. It has been a very busy last three months for me and the family. We moved back to the Norfolk/Va Beach area. Moving, new job and new house has kept me extremely busy so the car has taken a back seat for now. I am hoping to get the car back from the paint shop in March. More to follow.
