So, CX Racing's long tube headers makes a hard turn on the passenger side, right onto the pan of my auto trans:

They have no interest in making a set that'll clear an auto trans (though they previously stated they did in another forum). 

So what kind of options might I have to get around that?

My first thought was to cut just the collector off and see if I can weld another collector on at an angle, but I dont think that can get enough angle to clear. 

 

 

PS. Anyone have Hawks on a auto trans at all?

There is another thread on the forum where someone cut off the collector and rotated it to clear a 4L80E. Can't remember exactly where but its on here somewhere.
