great feeling for sure…Nick was invaluable answering countless rookie questions. my first time messing with a swap that wasn't a simple carb setup. wiring was intimidating at first but ultimately this swap was pretty easy and came together quickly.

I can't wait to get it on the road. it will be great to fill the 110 with family and gear and still have the power to tow a boston whaler on the highway.

Been looking at exhaust manifold options cause I'm cheap & was wondering if anyone had tried the later CTS-V ones ?

Reading on other marque forums they appear to be a good tight fit to the block & can be had for cheap on Ebay.... Allegedly

I had a similar issue on another build with ls and did block hugger headers and bent them in some. I swear they would be close but I think the hooker manifolds would be the best for sure. I plan on these and having them ceramic coated in black.

Hooker sell them precoated in black or silver. Stillworth exploring as I don't need cats or any emission junk so if I can modify some OEM ones, even better if there under 100 bux or free

Hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like they might dump directly into the frame.

Similar but we're shorter, and I heated them and tweaked them in.

There C6-LS3 Corvette ones. Also seen a few of these LS1 Corvette manifolds used on buggies as you can cut off the flange & weld on some St.St V band clamps. There also nice as they have the bungs for the O2 sensors in them. There also a larger dia pipe so should flow better than the Hooker ones.

I salvaged the pedal out the Chevy truck, was going to cut the end of it off where the cable attaches & weld onto the LR pedal. Can then use the chevy cable complete

Nic, did you try the CTS-V Lsx exhaust manifolds ?

These, from what I've read are the most tucked OEM ones available and prob the only other option to the Hookers..... I bow to Nic's greater knowledge
