    Thanks for the wheel info Steve, and yea the pipes are crazy down there lol. MCfan, thank you for all the info, and the pictures! Love the setup! I did end up going with the pair I stated in the last post, I got the set from my machine shop who did all my engine work, he told me to try them out, see how I like them, if they aren't a good fit for me, he'd take them back and get me a 1 3/4 primary set, so I guess I'll see how it all fits in the spring! The torque loss iam not crazy worried about, this solution was the "in my budget" solution, my wife an I just had our first baby, her being off on maternity leave, I cant believe i was even allowed to make a purchase right now lol. Thank you for all the info, I'll post some pictures when I get them! Thanks again guys

    Rob Peter's, they are a low profile 40 in the front and 45 is the rear, they are on 18 inch wheels. Mc1of80, sounds like a good plan to me, I have deleted the a/c anyways, maybe in the future a vintage air system? Who knows lol. But I think I will order a new set made for the monte carlo! Thanks again

    Haha thanks MC1of80. Ok well sounds like I have my answer, these do not fit a monte carlo properly! And yea trust me they are ugly 502ci. Definatly wasnt going to keep them for ever, but I was hoping for longer than this lol. So now that being said, I should be able to stick with a set of long tube headers FOR a monte carlo, and they should sit much closer to the floor, am I correct with that? What would you say would be a decent set to go with? Let's hear your opinions! Thanks again everyone for the photos and wisdom!

    Sorry and yes I am scraping the tubes before the collector flanges, you can sort of see where on the driver side manifold. The car is in the air but in the last picture is the frame rail vs the manifold Monteman1971 what size is your rim and tire in the front?

    So I took some pictures as I was at the garage, so to answer some questions, the motor is sitting on stock, new motor mounts. The springs in the front and rear are brand new, apparently "heavy duty" and I have a set of regular monroe shock all around, I know they are a complete low grade shock, it was just meant to get me on the road. I will post pictures of everything I took today and of the car sitting on all four wheels! And do not be afraid of telling me anything i did wrong, i need to know! Thanks everyone

    In that picture, you can see I removed the old proportioning valve from the side of the frame rail to the top and directly below the master to keep the heat away and add some clearance.

    In the picture it's hard to see, but it does say hooker competition on them. I will get a picture when I am there next and what it looks like under the car. Steve sitting on the ground like that, what do you think roughly the measurement is from the manifolds to the ground? I know mine are sitting 3 inches off the ground, so any dip in the road when the car comes up, it absolutely destroys the tubes. I just cant figure out why these things are so close to the ground. Iam honestly just thinking about changing them to the hedman 68616 headers! These are old and discoloured but I was hoping to get at least a few seasons before changing! I am using just a regular gas shock in the front and rear, car rides perfect accept when it smacks the headers haha. Thanks for a the replies guys!

    Thanks alot for the reply. It's so hard to figure out, lol. Having to spend a decent amount of money on a new set without seeing how they sit in the car is difficult! Plus I would never go stock lol, just something that doesnt sit as low as these things!

    Hey everyone, so now that the winter is here I am trying to get all of my issues sorted out before next year so I can have an even better time driving the car. The issue right now for me, is I have a 396/402 big block and the headers I put on are apparently hooker, no stamping though. They are about 3-4 inches off the ground, they are a full length, the car is stock ride heigh. When going over bumps in the road when the suspension compresses the headers hit the ground and iam already starting to wear through them. What iam trying to figure out is 1. Qhy are they so low, 2 is they a better option for full length that would sit closer to the floor? Or should I go with a 3/4 length? Any info is greatly appreciated!

    Fuel gauge

    Thanks monteman1971. It's up and on the suspension, added a fuel stabilizer with the last fill up, I'll see how she starts next year!. Still on the hunt for a resistor, hopfully I can get some time where it's not to cold and start testing when I find a new one! Thanks everyone!

    Blackhawk thanks, soon as spring hits I'll be back at it! Thanks realred70, time to start looking for one haha, I am 99% sure mine is not there when I was trying to test it this summer.

    Fuel gauge

    Good link, with good info, one more question, I have read different things about this, but is there supposed to be a 90 ohms resistor on the back of our fuel gauges? I can only find things on chevelles, and some people say yes others say no, any idea if we are supposed to have one?
