Well, I ordered the 88400's so we'll see how they fit in an 87 standard cab 2 wheel drive soon enough... If not, I'll mod them until they do fit. I have an entire stainless system to hand fab at the same time also. Looking at TIG machines now.

No.

SN-95 will work on the DS but the passenger side is the same as a Fox where it points directly at the frame.

For those installing long tubes, do you install them when you set the motor in, or after installing the transmission?

Make your own headers that exit outside the frame. Much better. less clearance issues. Speedway Motors has a weld up kit for SBF for $150. on sale now for $115. Comes with plenty of pipe, Collectors and flanges. I used it on my 351W swap recently.

No unfortunately I didn't take any picks after I made them, before installing. I do have this video of them on the truck. Passenger side was fairly easy. The drivers side I made the rear 2 headers pipes go under the steering shaft. The front 2 go over and they connect with some cheap flanges I bought. So the collector and rear 2 pipes are fully solid and go on first. Then the front 2 bolt together. It was time consuming but not at all that difficult.

Outside the frame is an option for Ibeam / Gearbox trucks, the Ibeam trucks have many header options, they are much easier to fab up or modify something to work.

Outside the frame will not work on a 98+ Control Arm / Rack and Pinion truck.

I used tri Y's on my 351 install into a 1988 2 wheel drive regular cab with AOD..had to do some modifying of the steering shaft and notch out the frame on passenger side.
