I have the later model lower (98+ I think) camry header for my '91 GT-S. Will it sit tall enough to scorch the hood insulation or am I good since it is the later variety?

Should I wrap it?

Also what do you think about hacking off the 2" pipe at the collector and welding on 2 1/4" from there on?

I'm running 2 1/4" exhaust all the way back from there anyway, so it doesn't make any sense to neck down in the header.

I could put the weld bungs for my O2 sensors wherever I want on the 2 1/4" peice which would also be nice since the camry header doesn't quite put it in a good spot.

Thanks guys! :bigthumbu

Is it the same one as it this?

If yes, then it will rub the insulation, just cut a hole in the insulation or tear it out completely.

That's it exactly.
Nothing wrong with shedding a few pounds of insulation. So which year manifold do I have?

The one I have is 98, I think the years before that had a cat built in, I'm not 100% on that though.
