    Weird Engine Sound?!? Help!

    Hey I have been told I have a cracked Exhaust manifold on my 96 z28 it makes a sound like there is a baseball card in a spoked bicycle tire and the faster I go the louder it is.

    Anyone have any suggestions before I get it fixed... is it really a cracked exhaust manifold making that sound or could it be something else?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    That is what is sounds like to me. If your gonna replace them go with headers. Just make sure you wrap your passenger side to keep the heat off your a/c box.

    header update

    I would love to put Long tubes on but I am moving back to Massachusetts and the laws are strict. Any suggestions on what type of header to use I am been looking at the JBA 1803-5 but they are real pricey and my car is a 1996 but was an early 96 so it has the single CAT set up.

    I was told I need to buy headers and "Y" Pipe for a 95 due to the single CAT setup.

    Don't know about on a LT1 car. You can a mid length with cats and still be legal.
