I'm looking to replace the shankle headers on my Milano with stock 3.0 manifolds. I'd love to replace them with either IAP's or CSC's headers, but I just can't afford it! If anyone has something suitable for sale, please let me know. If anyone is interested in the Shankle's, please let me know.

Headers

Hi, I have a set of stock headers in good condition. Where are you located? Bob 321-214-4190

I'm in Northern Virginia. I gave you a call today, Bob, but you were out. I'll try again this evening.

In the meantime, maybe I can get some opinions on the best way to deal w/my situation. My Shankles are leaking at the flanges and the down pipes are crushed a little from hitting the ground (standard problem w/the Shankles I understand). I'm looking for a solid fix that is not too expensive. My problem is that I'm not even sure I have a catalytic converter at the moment (the car passed emissions in VA, but just barely . . . don't know if that's possible w/out a cat). Thus, if I go w/new stock manifolds, I have to find a down-pipe (which I haven't been able to do yet), probably a new cat (considering after-market models like the Magnaflow, which are much cheaper), and then I'm not sure what else behind the cat.

One possible option I'm considering is a gasket from REMFLEX Exhaust Gaskets: Home Page. The sell a very flexible gasket that can fill gaps up to 1/16". But to get one of their gaskets, I have to send them a template, which means pulling apart the exhaust.

Anyone have any advice on the best way to get things sorted out?

Alfa parts

Hi, I use a gasket that I got in my gasket set for Alfetta sport sedan and it works fine with a little persuasion. International Auto Parts should have them or just keep looking on internet. There are people who have these cars to part out. Bob
