      Hi Guys, I'm looking to instal headers on my GP. I see Doug's seem to have a good rep for fit and clearance. If anyone has done the same or similar, please reply with any mishaps, problems or even good news! Every time I peer into my engine bay I see that crazy stock oil filter setup and a distinct lack of room on either side of the heads, and I wonder at the potential nightmare of threading those pipes into those spaces. I'm not concerned about max HP, I just want a free breathing engine and a nice deep note, so Tri Ys or 4 into 1 are both acceptable. I believe the Tri Ys deliver a slight torque advantage at low to mid revs, which is exactly where my engine will be 99% of the time.

      Thanks Frosty - looks like silver finish is factory but with a chrome perimeter which is exactly how mine is.  This'll make you laugh. I decided to have a look at my front parking lights, so undid the 2 screws and as I was putting the screws somewhere safe, the lens fell out and hit the concrete floor immediately disintegrating into a thousand little pieces of 55 year old sun affected plastic. I uttered some choice words whilst idly wondering how much glue I'd need to save it. Ames can supply new lenses, so I've added them to my ever expanding shopping list. Honestly, what else would I be doing with my life if I wasn't playing with my car? Getting out and meeting people? Volunteering? Saving the planet?

      Finally found a wheel at a price I was comfortable with. Wanted something a bit modern (17") but with its beginnings in a period correct start in life. I am looking to go a bit taller and wider in the back and I've already got 2" lowering springs to mount up as well. Without further adieu.......

      Moving forward with the layout of the tranny cooler, as well as the NACA duct leg of the ram air, I think this will work out quite well!  For the tranny cooler mount, it’s a very solid mount, but doesn’t come in contact the ac condenser, which I really dislike! When they attach an add on cooler by tie wraps pulled through the radiator/condenser, you’re just asking for trouble! The braided lines will attach fairly easily and there will be very good air flow. These cars have a divided air flow setup. The lower air inlets, below the upper grilles, feed the whole surface area of the condenser/radiator, but in a graduated throat, that predominantly feeds the largest amount of air to the lower half of that area. While increasing the velocity of the air the high up the throat it goes. Conversely the upper grilles have a direct high flow, while moving of course, impact on the upper surface area. As you all know, this setup takes the bottom radiator tranny cooer line and breaks it. The out line is than diverted to the cooler in and the out cooler line is taken back to the tranny. I still have quite a lot to do here yet. I need to get an adaptor for the return line out of the radiator to the cooler and then an adaptor to mate up to the tranny. Plus clean an repaint the lower end of the radiator framework and the new cooler bracket as well.         The NACA duct ram air setup is nearly complete now and appears there will be no issues with hooking it up or disassembly when needing to do a front cover removal.
