Hahaha, hey. Sent u a PM over at M247

...Ok so here we are with pics

Noticed that much of the fitment problem at the header outlet/HFCP inlet was due to the 2.5" piping at the inlet sticking past the flange and hitting the smaller flange at the outlet of the header


So I filled the gap with metal filler and then ground it down


Then I painted it with High Temp paint after prepping the surface with a scotch brite


And started the headers
First I filled the gaps with metal filler and ground the pipe edges down a bit


Then added liberal amounts of metal filler and let er dry


Then ground it all to a smooth angle






Not sure how the metal filler is going to hold up to the high temps but it is supposed to harden to metal strength, I mean this stuff was just as tough to grind down as the metal was. Anyway it was better than leaving it and worth the try to see what happens.

Ill paint the headers tomorrow probably and order wrap later tonight
