Shankle Exhaust Secondary (Header?) Collector 3 pipes to 1

Post by alfamaleohio » Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:20 am

Hey all, I'm new to this site, so please forgive my ignorance of protocol and what not!

I have a GTV6 with what I beleive to be Shankle exhaust. I have discovered a hole in the pipe, where the three pipes connect to a single pipe via a three hole collector gasket. Would anyone have a source for the copper gasket and/or know where I might find a replacement header for the drivers side?
Many thanks!

You could have the hole welded up, if necessary a patch could be welded to it. If the copper gasket is not torn then you could anneal it (heat it with a propane torch to soften it up) and just re-use it.

If the gasket is the same as the ones used in the locally made PACE headers, I think they are still available from PACE here in Victoria.
