    anyone know if the early model rams horn manifolds will fit '87 and later sbc fuel injection heads? the type with the 4 centered bolts for each valve cover?

    thanks in advance

    yep, done a bunch of them, you grind a notch in the manifolds for the valve cover to clear them, other than that it's a bolt on.

    What is that spacer on the output of the right hand manifold? Would I need one if I was fabbing my own exhaust?

    It's the heat riser blank, which makes that crossover fit.....which if you are fabbing your own exhaust, :confused: you need....

    I found a source for that spacer on some corvette performance site....one that has the valve dealio already removed....it was like $15-20 or so.

    Saves ya the work of hackin/welding it yourself....if ya can't locate one in the trash yard.

    That spacer is required if you use the exhaust crossover shown...
