Why did you use the mustang header instead of the F-body ones?

The 3800's exhaust is symmetrical, and the manifolds can be flipped. Worked great on mine..

To eliminate the crossover and clear the 4 speed shifter cables, and because the rear manifolds are restricted junk

No, the firebird ones. Not the FWD ones..



The 2001-2002's are really open, and have provisions for dual O2's if you want them. Maybe 1 for PCM and the other for wideband..

That's what I used, they flow great.

I agree about the crossover thing. Also, I routed my fuel up the drivers' side to keep the fuel lines well away from the exhaust. Shift cables stay nice and cool as well.

I too went with the 4 speed.

ah, didn't catch "F body"

I originally wanted to go with the f body headers, i even made a thread about it, because I wasn't sure if the f body headers would fit. i probably would have used them but no one could confirm if they fit the 3800sc with no issues.

FIEROFLYER modified the front headers and the mustang headers to fit instead. they should be here in a couple days.

For posterity, they fit, but the front one dumps out where the AC compressor would be, so I had to ditch AC and use an off-the-shelf AC delete pulley from NAPA.

i installed a comp cam that was similar to the VS cam. 115 deg LSA, and over .500" lift. In order to make it work, so far i have had to delete the balance shaft, install a double roller timing set, 2 paper front cover gaskets, oil pump cover machined .045", performance springs, retainers and valves. Hopefully it will be worth every penny.

I bought an xp hot cam from ZZP with 105 lb springs and modified retainers. Said everything could be stock with it.
Edit for auto correct.

Maybe I'm missing something here. with those manifolds, Why do you have them "Dumping" towards the front of the engine? Wouldn't you have more room to run pipes going at the back ? Or does the Trans get in the way ? I'm thinking about the F body manifolds, they are plentiful and cheap.

If I can help you by answering questions I will. I built up a 3800 L67 for a custom drop into my old school 96 GTP. Lots of wiring and upgrading.

I still have the L67 on the considering block for my Fiero GT engine build. Now I wait to see your impressions on this setup when done.

Cheers
