Chevy V8 swap exhaust
 
Hi all, I am swapping in a 350 carbed engin into my tj and was wondering if anybody has a good solution for manifolds or headers, other than the high dollar conversion headers. I am using Advance Adapters mounts. has anyone tried the mid length truck or Camaro headers????

I'd be interested in a response too. I want to do this swap someday

Nice, so its still a fairly high compression motor, probably 9.5 to 1. Probably a forged crank and GM pink rods.
