Any LT's available for 5L?

Hate the idea of shorties and want some LT's. Anyone have LT's installed without any major work?

It takes some major work. No long tubes are made for out cars. You'll have to ask Madmartigan and some other people on here what they did to make them work. Some have to beat their floor pans in and some have to bend the headers. You will have to redo the steering linkage! That is a given. That's why I haven't gone with long tubes. Too much work. Later!

I put long tubes in.
It was a b1tch.
I am also running a 5.8l and a C6....so things were even tighter fitting for me.
The passenger side went in with some ease(easier then the drivers side), but the driver's side....thats where the fun began.
The biggest problem I had was my tranny linkage, not only did I have to bend it, but I had to bend the header tubes as well. I also had to beat the floor in some(which I can't even hardly tell anyway).

Wouldn't you still have to modify the steering arms and linkage? I may be wrong and probably am.

for shorties? I don't think so....but for the longtubes(at least the ones I installed), I had to.
I don't remember if MAdd did the steering shaft mod or not?????
I think he just routed the factory shaft through the LT's.

Hopefully someone chimes in that has some sort of shortie header on their MN12, can help us out.

Man if I remember, they have to be made for a MN12. I'm not sure either. I don't think the Mustang ones will work. I don't want to buy them and find out they don't. You know what I mean? Maybe I'll just put that 418 ci. motor in it and copy what you did????

Just go with the summit off road version for 140 dollars. Even if they don't fit you could always just send them back.

They have 1 5/8ths primary's

I'm not sure right now. I would have to call up the guy and ask him. It isn't on my next list of mods to do so I'm not in any real hurry. I'm kinda hopein my motor goes south and I can put a 347 ci in the car.
