    Default GBody headers?

    Is there any headers made for a GBody with a Buick V8 engine in it?

    Mine fit in an X-body (Nova) and in a G-body. They are the 1-7/8" ones from TA.

    I bought the tube uppers for my Malibu and El Camino from a dirt/circle track racing supply place for $45 a side, use stock upper (bolt in) ball joints.

    Front end seems to have more travel and responds better (for drag racing).

    Not required.

    Does anyone know if TA 455 shorty headers will fit in a 82-87 regal without fitment issues? I realize they fit, BUT "out of the box" not with the help of a hammer.
    Did a search and really did clear answer.

    Looks like YOU will find out BEFORE me; I haven't heard from D&S regarding picking up my motor ... AGAIN.

    Most everyone I have communicated about regarding the TA Competition Long-style Headers fitting in a G-body Regal with STOCK A-arms, say the difficulty level of installation is @ 3.
    Additionally, no one has sent/shown a pic of said TA headers installed with stock A-arms.

    In my heart, I feel it's gonna be CAKE.

    Good luck, my friend.

    I have the 2" TA long tube headers in my '86 Regal, with stock A arms. I did not have to bend any tubes.
