    So I have a 4.3L Vortec V6 I am installing in my '42 MB. The jeep already had a chevy power train (SM420 behind a 153 4cyl) so bolting to the bellhousing was easy. Trying to find a set of headers that will work with this swap. The factory manifolds and a set of headers I had on hand will not clear the frame mounted master cylinder/clutch pedal. I'd like to avoid relocating them at this time if possible. Has anyone done this swap and kept the stock master cylinder/clutch/brake pedal? What headers did you use?

    Wow. Those look sexy, if not a little pricey. I might just pick up a couple overtime shifts and get a set. Thanks

    Where are you located?
    Got a old set of 225 outside the frame for 2A you could at least hold up and see if they are right for you.

    I live in Fallbrook but work in lake Elsinore. I'd like to try to stay inside the frame if at all possible. I don't mind going with a crossover and running a single pipe on the passenger side either. But if I can't find anything, I might take you up on your offer.

    Just a thought.

    I have a set of inside the frame Sanderson headers for a 225. They can make a set of headers for your 4.3L that fit the same, I would think.
