Well, I am making some progress, but as usual with me its slow.

Got the old exhaust off and all the hangers removed.

Time to install new hangers.

I have ordered new pipes, and I am working on cleaning up the manifolds.

I will have this thing up an running new month!!

1974 Cuda. 360/727.  Yes its pink, not its not my wife's car!  Yes I drive it.

Why not see if someone like BBK makes shorty headers for your project?

I figured for the cost / benefit they were just not worth it.

I am not after max power at this point, just trying to make the car more drivable over all.

Looks good.  How much more clearance do you have with the old 340 manifolds over the magnum manifolds?  I saw the pictures but looking for an dimensional estimate.  I think you barely had an 1/8 inch with the magnums.

Hey @PLUM72 ...you are right, about an 1/8 of an inch clearance on the magnum manifolds...and that was with a shim in the engine mounts.

With the factory manifolds, I can easily slip my hand in between the manifold and the steering box at the tightest point.
