Will they clear the knock sensor/ have 02 bungs Installing the EFI LT1 driveline in a street rod requiring knock sensor and O2 sensors. Do these headers clear the knock sensor on the passenger side (FYI: round port shorties don't). Do they have O2 sensor bungs?

Even tho the port configuration is different than a round port the overall layout of headers number 9300104 is the same as the other tight fit or block hugger headers and will likely have interference with the knock sensor in question. These do not come with any O2 sensor bungs in them.

You can use the same brackets you have now by making a spacer the to put between your bracket and the header flange. To determine the length of spacer you need to make just measure the length of your current manifold and subtract the thickness of the header flange.

What Y-pipe do these go with, or do they interface with the stock exhaust in the same way as the stock cast-iron manifolds?

Part number 9300104 These headers are NOT designed for direct hook up to any specific application. The collector has the OEM style seal so the exhaust shop can simply use a 3 bolt flange on the head pipe and flare the end to create the seal. The headers drop down 10 inches from the top of the ports and at the center of the two center ports. A Y-pipe would need to be made by your exhaust shop if so desired.

Thank you for your interest in our D-PORT TIGHT-FIT S/B CHEVY HEADERS, PLAIN, Item #: 9300104. Unfortunately these headers will not work with the Edelbrock heads. The only heads that those headers fit are the GM ZZ-4 heads or LT-1 / LT-4 heads. We have the S/B CHEVY TIGHT-FIT HEADERS FOR ANGLE PLUG HEADS, PLAIN, tem #: 9308037. These may work for you, they have a primary tube size of 1-5/8 inch and 2-1/5 inch collectors.

NOTE: Stainless header tubing when exposed to exhaust temperature will cause the finish to change color which will vary with the exhaust temperature. Please note that the finish of the header when the engine is started, will change to a light champagne color to a darker gold finish and in some instance may even turn dark blue or purple. This can be polished back out when utilizing Blue-away or Simi-chrome polish, but please note that when the headers reach running temperature again, they will immediately change color.

Chrome Warning: Due to a revised chroming process brought on by recent EPA regulations and high labor costs, today's chrome is not the quality of days gone by. Be Aware: Exhaust components which are chrome plated are now much more susceptible to blueing, blistering, peeling & corrosion. No warranty or returns on chrome exhaust items once them have been installed.
