A very nice header, should be worth a few hp over the Flowtech or Hedman full length. Should be for the 2 million dollars Canadian, a set costs.

Yes alot told me to go with ARH. Finally found a good used set, not perfect but will work well. A big upgrade from the Thortons I was going to use.

Yes Trudeau has to fund his family some how

Yeah, I saw that set, a good deal, might be a double digit gain over shorty headers. I see our fearful idiot leader is running our debt to a projected 1.2 Trillion! The pandemic only accounts for $368 billion of that. Glad you can still afford to finish this, no shortage of work as a fuel truck driver for me or my Wife as a Nurse. I am pushing forward with my Olds 403 based 424, sending in the block at the end of summer. Eagerly awaiting updates.

Yep terrible where we are heading, not good. I am fortunate,heading back to Northern BC again to work on the Coastal Gas Link. I would hold off in finishing but the motor been sitting since xmas and transmission build is almost complete, so just push through so Kelvin can enjoy his graduation gift

Which double hump X-member are you using? If using a G Force it'll be OK. My kit would clear my G Force but since they can't make a correct passenger side MCSS style tailpipe my kit is going to be used for extra pipe sections.

Hello again all.
Been busy at work, been away from home to do any work on the 442.
Any who, I have found a set of Blazer kuckles and hubs to upgrade the brakes. Now question is, need great quality rotors, calipers and pads. What and where would I look?
Thanks
