My 305 has the stock center dump ram horn manifolds on it which work just fine, but I am having an issue with steering clearance. With the manifolds I have to run three U-joints and I still end up with only about and eighth inch of clearance. I was thinking that maybe with a set of shorty's or mid legth headers I might be able to run the steering between the exhaust and block and only run two U-joints. There is plenty of room inside the fender for headers, I just really don't have much experience with them. Any idea's on whether or not this will work?
