4.3 edelbrock headers

Quick question for those of you with the edelbrocks..how far does the header come down before it connects to the y-pipe? The reason i ask is my 1st gen is an 88 so its missing the bend in the frame for the 4.3 exhaust..when i did my 4.3 swap i was able to "massage" the y-pipe to get the clearance i needed..so im wondering if they are close to the stock set-up as to where the headers and the y-pipe meet..this is only for the passenger side..the driver side has plenty of room. If any one has a pic of the pass. side with these headers installed please post it up so i can get an idea.
thanks

Re: 4.3 edelbrock headers

My Edelbrock headers has a heat shield that is spot welded in 2 places ON the header tube.

One of the spot welds decided to come off, exposing a 1/4" hole in the side of the header.

Now my truck leaks exhaust and sounds like a chitty bang bang.

That's exactly what my brother-in-laws Edel's did too. It also made a nifty noise like the sound of a midget banging a hammer on a tin plate.

Re: 4.3 edelbrock headers

oh yeah, it was making that tin can rattling sound prior.

Everything about the edelbrock is good, but that ****ing heat shield (which I had to cut a portion out to get to my spark plug).

All the other headers don't use the heat shield.
