Agreed. Let's hear it.
unfortunately my mechanic didn't capture it. i don't have the equip to do it myself, i'll do what i can down the line. the cats are magnaflow

53956 and mufflers are totalflow 1 chambers. its not what i hoped for but its far better than the stock manifolds, hollowed cat & Y pipes. i made 1 mistake maybe with the manifolds, got the Dports instead of the square ports. not sure what ports are on the heads but they are the TBI heads casting #14102193.​

yeah i bought those on a wing & a prayer, searched for over a yr to see if anyone else done it and found nothing. only thing i seen was 396 chevy (i think) advertising them for G bodys and went off A & G bodies sharing same headers.

Has anyone actually tested these vs headers or regular manifolds?

Looks like these manifolds lack low emission ports and being cast iron its probably more difficult to retrofit emission fittings like O2 sensor and AIR injection bungs onto them.

there's nothing out there that i been able to find but i will say i went from the stock 305 manifolds to those. there's a impovement and i want to see what happens when i put 87 oct in and if or not still get a bunch of clatter when under load, the 350 did it worse than the 305.
