BBK problem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I ordered bbk lts and an offraod h. When i went to put on the h pipe it didn't line up right(and no its not upside down). The cup on the passenger side of the h fits perfect with the ball of the header but the drive side is cocked but it fits in the ball but is angled like the h pipe isn't wide enough. I also tried puttin on the driver sied first but i hade to push the pipe on the passenger using my foot while a buddy hooked it up. all it did was move the driver side and still leaked. Any suggestions?

Re: BBK problem

I've had to put ratchet strip to both headers to pull them together before you can try that

Re: BBK problem

they may require a different H pipe, might want to check with BBK to make sure.

Re: BBK problem

yea, the bbk lts are made to use a bbk only x/h pipe. otherwise you have to custom fab the pipe you bought.

I know this because I have both.

Re: BBK problem

yea but was it made to specifically fit the bbk lts? bcuz im pretty sure you cant use a regular bbk h-pipe and hook it up to the lts.

Re: BBK problem

Yes it is the short h for lts. If it wasn't it would be way to long and be bent up towards the manifolds!

I know the 96-98 and the 99-04 flange is different i ran into this problem when i did the motor swap.Might check and see if that could be a problem.They might be a different width also

Re: BBK problem

Re: BBK problem

It's not a drop top is it? Read while looking for mine that alot of the parts I looked at said they wouldn't fit.
