HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

On my car the oil filler is very tall sits way above the valve cover. Are those new valve covers with a flush filler or can you get a replacement filler that sits flush like yours?
One more question... My drivers side header flange is going to hit the frame of my car. Did you have to hit that side in at all so your header fit?

Thanks! Your car sounds good!!

I had to do that on my LS1 on the driver side since it has a factory bow out in the frame rail. Glad to know I am not alone in that area.

I don't think I could get a sledge in there to smash it and I want to avoid removing the engine.... Could I use something like a small hand held electric jack hammer? Can you get them with blunt ends?

when i replaced my header gaskets (recently) i beat in the header around the collector to give myself a little breathing room, it helped tremendously.

My car had a very high oil filler like yours i would guess. i unscrewed the cap from the top, then unscrewed the filler neck, then screwed the cap straight into the valve cover, worked like a champ!

Thanks, I didnt know you could do that....

I managed to get my header to fit. I beat the frame rail in last night with a piece of pipe and a BFH. What headers are you using? I'm using sanderson headers and I think I remember reading on the sanderson site that your susposed to use just RTV sealant and no gaskets?

i don't know about sanderson's, i'm using patriot tight tuck headers, they're essentially the same thing, just cheaper...

These headers are only for LT1's if you plan on using a 5.3L LSX; you'll have to get them modifed to fit.
