66 chevy nova
none. good waste of your hard earned dollars.if you think they are cheap,wait till you see how long and what you got to do to put this crap on, if you can.
to start with the welds are at best horrible. tech support (woody) told the truth when i asked for help,he told me he did not know.then woddy tried to brow beat me with the usual crap, wrong mounts,steering box differances,was the engine ment for that car,on and on.we already put the right side header on,no problem.i guess from what i have read here i better check to see if they finished attempting to weld it completly. now we can't send them back so lets see what it takes to instal the flowtech left header for a 64-67 chevy nova ss.first you take a 1 and 1half in.hole saw and saw the no.3 cylinder pipe(second pipe back on left side ) in half 8 in. down from engine flange,this makes a nice fitted joint.you'll probly need a joint after doing this.next go down to the collector and remove the rest of that pie.weld suitable plug to close that hole.next we grind the weld off of engine flange.now rotate no. 3 pipie to no.1 pipe,mark where 1 and 3 join.remove no 3 fitting and cut a hole inside the line you just marked.now put no.3 fitting back in hole it came from.rotate fitting till it wraps around no.1 tube.now weld the tubes together followed welding the flange.now you have increased the clearance by 1 and three quarters in between the steering box and the flowtech header you proudly own.now that you have 3 pipe headers you now have all the room you need to clear the steering box.you may now instal the header efortlesly.don't get out from under the car yet,have an assistant turn the steering wheel to the left take a 3lb hammer and beat in the next till it fits.my now that was great. oh,if your welding skills excead those from the flowtech go find someone who has never seen a welder and hve them do the job ,afterall you want it to your proud of your perchase.
to review these problems are not reserved for any 1 car maker,they screw them up on all models.or they send us this junk followed by a film crew to try to win 100,000 on one of those vidio shows.
