Default S&S made headers for CAT...

...starting in the early '90s. The redesigned headers have larger 1 5/8 tubes and most headers have merged (multi-part welded) collectors. CAT stopped using S&S when they moved from CA to AZ.

Default S&S headers

Headers fit car previous owner beat them cant see why because we have no clearance issues. They flow well with the pounding 420RWHP.

My 'club' headers also fit with zero massaging required... can't say that for the 'J.C. Whitney's ' a P.O. had installed

Default I have

A set on my black car they have a bracket tag that is near the collector. Fit is okay but always had a little noise generating rub on motor mounts. Rather then mess with it I expect a Tiger to growl a little

Fitting my CAT headers now.

Passenger side fits pretty good but the drivers side has required grinding both motor mounts in 4 places and numerous on and offs. Now have paper thin clearances in 4 spots so next it will be massaging 3 down pipes. Have 2+ hours in it so far with maybe a couple more to go............Need a little extra roon for the external ceramic coating to come...

Reports later in the week.

Worked 2 hours this morning on the drivers side for clearance to the engine hangers.

Heat and beat #6 tube 2 places, and # 7 tube 2 places in addition to grinding the engine hanger in 3 places.

Passenger side was a quicky, just 1 place on the #2 tube.

Now hopefully a test fit in the engine compartment soon to check for interference there before the trans. gets bolted up.
