What pic are you referring to? Not sure what you mean by upstream.

Sometimes you almost have to do a 90 T, but I was told never angle upstream. But I am not a header designer-maybe it’s no big deal. Now would be the time to check though-with the access easier before things are buttoned up. If not a big deal, then great- if you (or someone else) knows it’s cool to do it then sweet- I will happily learn something! I,ve only helped on some, never designed any...

Cool— like I said, not an expert just passing on what I was told which is why I qualified it exactly as such. Anecdotally interesting how wrong I was when I look at other designs: https://www.google.com/search?q=exha...w=1024&bih=666

My intentions were nothing but good.

That?s Andy?s Home built setup, not mine, but that guy knows his stuff and appears to do his homework.

Don?t sweat chiming in though, I appreciate everyone?s input

Looking good!

I will admit to a moment of nervousness when I saw the diesel filter still attached to the firewall. Also, I would tuck that air filter into the front of the wheel well. I got some good advice on getting it away from and in front of the exhaust manifold which I did.

Yea, still some plumbing issues. The diesel filter is a leftover basically just holding the lines out of the way until we tackle the fuel system. The air cleaner presents a few issues, I was hoping to get it under the right wing vent and use a scoop to pull cold air down since my heater doesn’t plug it.
