Speedtech tells us that their headers will clear both factory style and rack and pinion steering, and the oil pan clears crossmembers on Camaros, Chevelles, and Novas.
Here's an example I read about that too, however that's an 08 model. It comes standard or machined for the oil bypass valve to use with displacement on demand or variable valve timing. The mid-length headers use a gasket-less ball and socket type collector for a leak free install. Starting off with a stock 5. The truck means a great deal of sentiment to me as it belonged to my father who passed away on the job when i was young.
