exhaust manifold alternatives

Does anyone know of low profile , block hugger exhaust manifolds for the rover v8? I'm sticking a v8 in a series and before too much of the bulkhead gets trimmed away to accomodate the rover manifolds, I want to see if I have any other options. I bought (and returned) a pair of hedman headers... they were much wider than stock rover exhaust manifolds. Anything else out there? Thanks.

D&D rover V8 specialist. Get a set used to stuff a RV8 in an MG car.

I don't know if these will fit better but they are said to be for the D90:

Thanks. I'll give them a ring. Hadn't seen these before.

I can't tell for sure, but those look like the Hedman's which require some modification to get them to work on a NAS D-90.

I helped a buddy try to install the Toddcos a few months back; to make a long story short they didn't come anywhere near lining up with the Y pipe. In fairness, I can't say for certain that it wasn't due to the usual rover tolerances, but in this case they were WAY off. He wound up having a custom Y pipe bent up if I remember correctly.

Did the Toddco's clear the area between the frame and starter on the passenger side? that is the trouble spot with the Hedman's.

If I remember correctly, yes. However, they weren't even close to the Y pipe and I seem to remember it taking a LOT of finagaling to get them to line up with the holes in the block as well. Again, YMMV

Of course there is always this route... then they will definitely fit.

I need your opinions guys (Pendy specifically) ... I bought a set of the block hugger headers from D&D fabrications and I swear they sent me two left hand headers. I called D&D and he had me look at the flanges on them. One had a "1" stamped and the other had a "2" stamped on it. He said that means one is left and one is right. However, they are identical in every way. The way I understand it, they should be mirror images of one another so that the collector pipe drops down in the same spot on either side (just rear of center to clear the motor mount). Both headers fit perfectly on the left hand side of the truck, but both run into the exact same issue on the right hand side of the truck. i.e. they both hit the motor mount in the same spot. He says there's nothing he can do if one has a 1 and the other has a 2. He told me when I bought them that I could not return them. See attached pics.
