    Yez sir! We are waiting to put them on for this reason. Plan is to soak the bolts for 24 hours in blaster. Also trying to wait for cooler temps which may help in removing the old bolts, not to mention it will not be so miserable outside. Hopefully next weekend will be less busy and a bit cooler

    Good luck! It should sound pretty sweet with the new manifold!

    Just waiting on my new plug wires to arrive. Should be cooler outside this weekend. If the wires arrive on time, headers will be ok to go.

    I have a really bad feeling that no amount of blaster or liquid wrench will prevent this from occurring. Just a bad gut feeling. I hope I am wrong about it though.

    I picked this up today for $100. Its not in great shape but nothing that cant be sanded or painted to make it look shiny and new again. I dont know what style hood this is, I just know that it is supposed to fit 93-97 camaros. I like it though

    It's a harwood ram air, if it's real it's a non working, fully finished underside and the gel coat fiberglass should be black.

    Well in there link it looks like it works. http://www.eharwood.com/catalog/prod...?productID=399

    You and whatever other owners obviously babied the shit out of your car. Im jealous. My car is the total opposite and every owner except for maybe keith and i rode this thing so hard into the ground.

    Can you imagine how hot the headers on mine have gotten? Plus yours only goes out on good days, if water touches it while its hot it can warp and....uhg. Im not even gonna try to take mine off, again good luck!

    I didn't get this car until 2005, yes it was low miles , but far form perfect and who knows what the orginal owner did or didn't do. Also I think that since the car has always been a georgia car helps out not rust and such.

    But it did have all the famous oil leaks a week after I got it an the famous rippers drivers seat.

    Oh yeah my front header bolt pass side was already broke and my stock y pipe to manifold was held together with vise grips, free tools are nice lol
