85 K10 LS swap- header info requested
« on: February 27, 2016, 11:12:30 AM »
Hey guys, I've got an 85 K10 I'm restoring and bringing up to date and I'm looking for a set of headers, long tube or short that will fit my truck. I'm using the the TH350 that came with the truck, but all the headers I find are for a  C10. My only concern is the front drive shaft interfering. What headers are you running on your 4x4 LS swaps. Thanks for any info or tips in this swap progress.

 Take a look at Vilezambonie's Mutt Project ( I think). He has a link to some stainless shorty headers on ebay. We bought a set for Brooke's pickup and are impressed with the quality. I can't remember who the seller is. We haven't put them on her truck yet. They are for the 88 and newer body style. From what we can tell, the O2 sensor hole gets plugged and requires a small notch in the frame for clearance. We'll have a bung for the O2 sensor welded into the exhaust pipe. They're $150ish
