HEADERS: These components are designed to improve the exhaust efficiency of the GM C.P.I. (Central Port Injection) V8 engine. This
system does not require welding for installation and retains all O.E.M. emissions equipment. These Edelbrock headers are
street legal in all 50 states.
Suggested Tools Needed for Installation. This vehicle has metric fasteners:
❑ 3/8" ratchet socket set with extensions and universal 13mm and 15mm swivel sockets
❑ Set of combination wrenches
❑ Jackstands, screwdrivers, pliers, crescent wrench, etc.
❑ Liquid penetrant, (GM #1052627) anti-seize compound (GM #5613695)
SPECIAL NOTICE: This Edelbrock part has received an Executive Order number (E.O.#) from the California Air Resources Board
(C.A.R.B.) making it legal for street use in all 50 states. To assist you with emission equipment certification, we have included a silver
fan shroud decal to help testing personnel verify the this part is a legal replacement on the vehicle for which it is cataloged. The
adhesive-backed decal should be affixed next to the existing emission and engine specifications decal. Do not cover any part of your
original emission decal.
WARNING: The use of "Thermal Wrap" or any aftermarket coating process will void the warranty on your Edelbrock Headers.
Those products will cause excessive heat and moisture buildup resulting in corrosion and failure of the header.
NOTE: High temperature spark plug wires and boots are recommended to withstand heat from Headers.

Note: Thick washers are to be used on slotted holes
of port flange.
5. Re-install spark plug wires.
6. Install A.I.R. flange using supplied gasket (use factory
hardware).
Note: Due to production tolerances, it may be
necessary to bend the motor mount heat shield for
better clearance.
ASSEMBLY OF EXHAUST PIPE
Note: The stock donut on 4.8L & 5.3L gasket on right exhaust
manifold will be re-used with headers.
This system comes with 2 exhaust crush rings. On 4.8L & 5.3L
V8s, only one will be used on the left side collector. 6.0L
vehicles will use one on the left side and one on the right side
to replace factory-installed crush rings.

1. On 4.8L & 5.3L V8s - Remove the donut gasket from
right side exhaust manifold. Using a pair of pliers,
remove the retaining ring from the donut gasket and
place the donut gasket in flare of factory exhaust pipe.
2. Using supplied hardware, re-attach the factory exhaust
pipes to the headers and tighten bolts evenly to ensure
a tight seal. (Note: The 7/16 x 2 bolts are to be used on
the right side of 4.8L & 5.3L V8s and the 7/16 x 1 ¾ are
for the left side of 4.8L & 5.3L V8s, or both sides on 6.0L
V8).
FINAL INSPECTION
1. Check all lines (hydraulic, vacuum, air conditioning and
fuel) to ensure there is adequate clearance to headers.
2. Re-connect battery.
3. At this point, it is a good idea to look everything over and
make sure that nothing was missed in assembly.
4. Start vehicle and bring up to normal operating
temperature. Check for possible leaks.
5. Turn engine off and let cool. Tighten all bolts again.
