After an earlier post about using stock exhaust manifolds and y-pipes in my SBC swap, I decided to instead convert to dual exhausts with those cool Hooker cast iron headers referenced by many of you.

The truck is an '84 C10 with SBC and 350C automatic. It originally came with a 250 inline 6 and single exhaust.

a quick question: in converting to dual exhaust, it appears I'll have clearance issues at the transmission cross member.

Are there any good after market transmission crossmembers that you all could recommend?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I got one from Summit Racing (770282). It worked great. I did have to drill one hole in it on the drivers side.

I used the driver side of 2 cross members to make a symetrical crossmember on my '81c10. Plenty of clearance. simple to fab.

All - I finally went with a Dirty Dingo crossmember. About $170 and is adjustable where the transmission mounts. Lots of options out there. Thanks for all the feedback.
