Customer Question

I asked this question earlier but I think the session dropped and I was charged $5
But I will try again. I have a 1973 Olds Delta 88 Royale with a 350.
I am wanting to have dual exhaust installed. The issue I am having is locating headers, preferrably short tube rather than long. it seems as if the only ones available at all for a Delta 88 are for the 400 and 455. However, I would think I could use headers that are designed for any similar Olds(###) ###-####exhaust manifold configuration like a Cutlass.
I have not looked yet, but if my stock exhaust manifolds are separate and simply go into a single pipe instead of being linked together from one manifold to the other, then maybe I can forget about headers and simply have the dual exhaust installed. But headers would be nice.

the stock exhaust has a front crossover pipe .

there are exhaust headers on ebay running around $200 these would fit your vehicle as well as cutlass's

called speed daddy .

then it would be simply collectors ,straight pipes and mufflers.etc..

I couldn't find any shorties but you can google olds clubs and you would most likely have good luck finding the parts you need .

such as-- https://www.oldsmobileclub.org/

if this was my car ,I would get those headers on ebay and then collectors,mufflers etc.

I don't know if you tried places such as Jegs j.c.whitney ,they may have what you need ...jazzmaster ..

I don't see any reason that cutlass headers wouldn't work or even vista cruisers //as long as they had a 350 motor ..
