tpi 350 in tj / headers or manifolds?

Been doing a bit of research on putting a 350 tuned port motor in my 97 tj. I see advanced adapters makes a set of headers for this application. Anybody using these or found another set that works? How about manifolds, what worked for you? Thanks, Kevin.

89 Firebird TPI in my YJ uses the stock exhaust manifolds. No problems.

96 LT-4 in my CJ uses the stock LT-4 manifolds. No problems.

If you want tubular shorties I would probably go with center dump SLP for TPI Corvettes. I think JBA's are the same design but can't remember. This design of tubular headers make it a little easier to run your plug wires.

Whatever you do stay away from Heddman.

im runnin the aa tj headers in my junk. its about the only option you have unless you want to really mess with a bunch of stuff. they tuck around the steering shaft and just clear the battery tray. i actually have a couple dents on them from hitting the tray.

i dont have any complaints. they were pretty cheap too.

I'm glad to here they are working for you. I do not have any personal experience with AA headers. I've heard there quality is not the best but like you said, the price is right and this is the route I will probably go. . Has anybody else had any luck w/ off the shelf manifolds? Thanks, Kevin.

The best conversion block huggers out on the market are HPC's "No-Leaker"
They come coated inside and out with a lifetime warranty. They don't use a collector gasket so you don't have to worry about blowing collector gaskets,they have a laser cut 3/8" flange, come with all hardware needed including downpipes.....ect...
Only conversion header we've used and never had a problem. www.hpcoatings.com/no_leaker_headers.htm

When comparing header styles, think about where you want to run your exhaust. Dual or single? If single, how are you going to run your Y-pipe and keep it off the ground?
