Sir Thomas crapper Am awesome build, congratulations.

My brother has a couple of ZX2's, 1 was given to him. I'm looking at putting the engine into my 1972 Pinto Squire that i race in 24 hours of lemons. I've got a bunch of 2.3 T5's and 2 Pinto 2.0 4 speed transmissions.

Alot of great info here. Thank you for documenting this so thoroughly.

sailor Hot pipes right where all the water/crud comes through the grille doesn't help the appearance. Beating it on the curb didn't either.

4-2-1 is a nice header for spreading the power band, helps at both ends.

Just run a straight pipe out from behind the front wheel & a cutout to run to the back through a muffler for stealth mode. don't need to turn it 90% that way....

Kidz!! Oh wait your the uhhhh cough cough! Kid!! Cough Cough!!

I think that would be bad ass to make that SVT header work. Couldn't hurt your bottom or top end, can only help, at least I would think.

Dads right a lil snip here and a tuck there and a few beads and shes a spankin new h00ker, err header!!

It's funny but you can't even tell it was stainless!! Heat is our enemy!
