SBC Question - Exhaust Manifolds

I'm installing a 5.7L TBI in my 84 CJ. The engine came out of a 94 Chevy P/U. On the drivers side, the exhaust manifold is pointed right at the frame rail.
It does not take a lot of rocket science to see that this is not going to work.

Does anyone know off hand what years/vehicles stock exhaust manifolds will work....i.e., allow the exhaust to fit within the frame rails.......and NO, headers are NOT an option....I don't want them.

Re: SBC Question - Exhaust Manifolds

Maybe these Center Dump exhaust manifolds will work.

Re: SBC Question - Exhaust Manifolds - Solved

Problem solved....
Went by the local mufler shop that I use and asked him.....he handed me a set of keys and said "there is my shed....search through the pile and see what you can find". Sure enough, he had a set that looked like they would work (and did work). Price? Free....I just have to let him do the new exhaust when I get the SBC running.

Many thanks Dave for the quick responses.

Now that's the sign of a good shop and trustworthy operator. I'd send as much business his way as possible. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: SBC Question - Exhaust Manifolds - Solved

Those are the kind of stories that you like to hear. It seems like customer service is second chair at some places these days. It is always great to hear about good things like that. I would also send as much business his way as possible.

Re: SBC Question - Exhaust Manifolds

[img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Hmmmmm...that sounds like a muffler shop that I would go to if I wuz you. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] The last exhaust job I did was in our FS GM 3/4T and I wanted something special. I've always considered myself a Rembrandt with a gas welder; and have grown headers for just about everything that moves. However, the stuff that these modern shops have to work with now is awesome, and for that reason I stood by and had a shop build a custom exhaust for me for the first time ever. The job met and exceeded my expectations, including the requirement that the PTO door on the transfer case be left clear of exhaust piping in case I need to add a hydraulic pump or some such thing to the truck.
