I bought a 220kw AU V8 with ceramic headers from an Au2 to fit in my NC Fairlane. I'm trying to find out whether they will fit, or not. I have a mechanic doing the swap for me.

There are posts in this forum that say the au headers don't fit in the nc/eb.

If this is the case,

Can the AU headers be modified easily?

what headers are compatible and what are their respective brands & prices?

I have looked at Hurricane Headers [HU354STM] $500

I'm splashing for a new 2 1/2" Exhaust system, the shop changing the engine will need extractors that fit the Gt40p heads and clear the steering, plug leads & sockets in the Fairlane for ease of maintenance.

Without spending a mint, what would be an affordable, performance exhaust design that is not obnoxiousLY loud? Is a twin design available? :twisted: I really don't want to spend more than $1500 to have it fitted complete no cats required in the build.

Appreciate your wisdom and burnt fingers! :-)

I don't want to just roll into an exhaust shop and get burnt :oops: :x because I haven't done any homework.

Appreciate your responses.

Cheers :D

AU2 headers wont fit, and because theyre ceramic coated theyre not worth the modification.

I used EL GT Headers with a 200kw engine - worked ok. The Passenger side header actually looks similar to the AU one.

I believe the hurricane AU header fits the EF/EL, but they will be able to confirm. You might need to just use the 266stm's.
