After seeing that cake, all you guys want to talk about is manifolds and headers?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Manifold clearance issue solved.
93-03 Dodge Dakota- 318 Manifolds.
Good space above the upper control arm. Lots of room with the rear dump.
The brother is picking up a set from his local pick and pull as we speak.
Less then half the price of 2 new ones.
Keep on keeping on.....

I have to thank my brother for this one gang.��
He did the research. And he is the one that has a pick and pull by his house.
My local yard might have a set as well so that’s a fall back.
My brother and I have had our share of differences over the years. But we always could get together when it came to cars.
As far as I am concerned, the best thing about both my builds is the fact that it has brought us back together.
I told him the last time he was here it was like a time machine. I was 14 and he was 16 and we were back working on cars together.
Helps to make it all worth while.

Being out of the mainstream sometimes brings unique problems. Remember I had a similar exhaust problem with the Linc, Explorer manifolds were my solution. It just takes a little extra effort to find those factory gems that most folks throw away. Good for you and your brother to have the patience to get it figured out. One more step to a cool ride!
