Post pics of the Xmember. Looking at their website it does not look like the ones on the 67 and 68 I just finished.

Do you think the Holley mounts will lower the engine ?? Also are those solid mounts thicker from top of frame to body than stock ? How far away is the collector from the cross member ??

The X will work on both LS and SBC/BBC. Just make sure it for the TKO500/600 and not the T56
John, FYI, the TKO x member will NOT work on a BBC. BBC cross members have a different # 0013. SBC and LS # 0008 as per Hurst.

Donny can you please give the the measurement, thickness of the mount they sent you? I am pretty sure the one I have installed is the same thickness as the one that Silversport sent me. Thanks

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/exhaust/builder_components/exhaust_components/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.

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....

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.
