Doug’s Header Installation

Doug’s D570 Headers were purchased from Summit to go on the Trans Am.  They were more expensive than most other brands but I’ve heard many horror stories about the fitment and modification required of cheaper headers.  Most unanimously agree that Doug’s fit best.  The installation wasn’t bad and it appears at the moment that only a slight modification will be needed to a bolt on subframe brace.  The passenger side header just barely contacts this brace and won’t allow the header flange to contact the head correctly.  The headers are for a ’73 Trans Am Pontiac 400 which is what I have only installed in an ’81.  I put a thin layer of Ultra Copper Sensor Safe High Temp Silicon sealant on both sides of the gasket as the instructions specify.  The headers come with gaskets and hardware but do not come with the sealant.
