    Coolant issues?

    Hey Guys! I am having a problem with my coolant! I notice that coolant is comming out on the ground everytime, I drive my baby and then turn it off. The leak seems to be comming from in front of the front right tire. When I drive the car, I notice that after a couple of hours I have to add coolant to the radiator.. I have just had the waterpump replaced and the whole radiator flushed, but am still having problems.

    Thanks,
    Bigmiccio

    P.S. what aer a good set of headers for a 98 Z28 that have plenty of ground clearance?

    Turn the car on and look under it and find out where the leak is coming from.

    Jet hots, Pacesetters, Hookers, Mac midlenghts(if you plan to ever cam your motor you probably want longtubes though) are all good headers and give good clearance. The SLP headers have real ground clearance issues and you definately want to avoid them.
