Thanks, the issue I have is that Hedman Elite headers have a ball connector on them, so I need a socket connector for the exhaust system. The Hedman provided mild steel sockets, but the exhaust system is stainless and I am not thinking it is a good idea to weld the mild steel sockets to the stainless exhaust.

The headers are ceramic coated so they are not getting cut or modified.

Thanks.

I've got the same issue with my FPA headers. Haven't decided what I'm going to do yet. I need to take my system to a shop to have it installed because the pipes off the headers have to be modified to fit the convertible floor pans, so I will see if they can make up a stainless socket connector.

My system is finally installed. It sounds awesome. Nice low rumble at idle and nice roar when opened up. No drone. Kudos to Magnaflow. I opted for the stainless socket connectors.
Chaplin and 68Hildago like this.
