being for the SS sedan , there should be nothing done to the headers

but the mid section will require work , because of the longer caprice , and the different muffler flanges

Might be like mine where you'll need to notch a header tube to clear the steering shaft.

But looking closer at the pics, those are some ugly ass welds at the header flange.

Here's Maximizers as a comparison, which are the ones I went with:

I went with a Maximizer system from headers to rear pipes and JBA mufflers however the flanges at the muffler didn't match and the tail pipes had to be extended to fit the longer Caprice body. I can't find that particular Maximizer system anymore.

If you can live with those welds, the JBA mufflers are really nice to go with it. Just check that the flanges match.

Those headers must be welded from the inside. Yikes.

I don’t think they look bad at all, I hope they fit well too.
