The beginning of September, we got the 460 and C6 in place! Was also able to get the headers reinstalled (and look how tightly they wrap around the steering box!!) but not yet torqued....

With everything now torqued, the driver side was perfect, but I discovered the passenger side collector was snug against the side of the transmission pan and no way to get the V-band and collector reducer installed. I contacted Crites about making me a collector that breaks 20 degrees at the primary to collector transition to get it off the pan and running back parallel to the driveshaft.

Something I thought of prior to talking with Kenny at Crites was the possibility of swapping the collectors side to side, so the following weekend I set about removing the driver side collector to see if it would work on the passenger side and vise-a-versa. Well the driver side collector fit onto the passenger side once rolled 180 degrees and got the collector off the transmission pan...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

but the passenger side collector mounted on the driver side had the same problem as on the passenger side, the collector was right against the pan! I'll have Crites make me another driver side collector, rotate it 180 degrees and then install the tabs in the correct location to mount it on the passenger side and leave off the three hole collector flange. I'll also need to order a new V-band flange to weld to the collector once it arrives and then have it powder coated.
