Header and Intake | Too Close?

Post by TheHeretic » 18 Feb 2018 09:33

Test fitting the header and intake before the engine goes into the car. Intake is a Datsun Comp copy which has been given an angle grid by Rebello already as it was touching the header on the dyno. With my new comp header is was still touching so I ground back some of the intake and gave the header a good dent. Here are the latest pictures. My basic question is how comfortable would you be with how close everything is? Will be installing a heat shield under the carbs as well...and the header is ceramic coated so that should help a little with heat.
