Just won these on Ebay:

Supposedly, the truck manifolds won't fit, so I bought these F-body manifolds that are supposed to fit without any problems. I guess $45 with shipping isn't too bad. :?

I hope you plan to ditch the shields though! Nice score for 45 shipped.

Paint the shields black (if you can find a good paint that'll hold up to the heat)... it'll help match the black engine bay a little better 8)

It would be cheaper to get full length coated headers! :shock: :lol:

I'll probably leave the heat shields on to give the "way GM would have done it" look, like Slimbo5 said.

I didnt know you could get headers for the swap......personally I hate headers on a daily driver and the 4.8 definatly wouldent gain much from a header.....

Yeah, I don't like headers on a daily driver, either.

Landon (Roller406bu) is using Pacesetters race version (no egr) longtube tube headers for a 98 up Camaro. He said they fit great. He (and I) are using Transdapt 4952 motor mount adapters. I'm going to stick with the F-body manifolds.
