I know you're on the tail end, but LCE is having a giveaway on their facebook and instagram account... a nice shiny header is one of the prizes! I'm not a big LCE fan for their header, but free is free!

Hi e,

Gee, it would be nice feel like I'm at the "tail end".  I would like to get the engine back together this week end, and then prep the engine bay and get it ready to drop the engine back onto to the motor mounts, remount the A/C compressor, pulleys, alternator, etc.  I'm not going as fast as I thought I would.

Yes, I went to the FB and saw the ad.  I'm not a FB expert, so I won't tag any friends.  The LCE header is a 4-into-1 style and is known for it's high quality.  I don't think it would be any better than a Doug Thorley, but I don't have anything to compare it to.  From my understanding it's good for top end RPM but may trade off some lower RPM torque.  For my current build, cam & OS valves, I think the DT header is a better choice, BUT..... a free $400 header would be awesome.

It would be fun to chassis dyno the two headers and see the results.

Gnarls.  :spin:
