They’ll be fine then. I think the victor jr type eliminates the bolt between the intake runners. I want to use a rectangle port victor jr on my 496.

Did you used the Nord-Lock Wedge-Locking washers on your header bolts?
Speaking for myself, constantly retightening my header bolts every couple months got old faster than organic non-GMO fruit. In the years since I went with the wedge-locking washers, I haven't needed to retighten my header or collector bolts.

I see you have a vacuum canister. Will you be using that to supplement just your brake booster or will it also supply vacuum to your AC and cruise control?

Do you still have the servo, its bracket, and throttle cable too? Of so, would you consider parting with those parts?

X pipe Ordered yay (marketplace score) cheap and never used Pypes

Mufflers ordered even more Yay Holley dot com for Mufflers $37.76 each x 2 and there welded (will see about the quality) + Free shipping even more and more YAYYYYYYYYYY

Holley owns FlowMonster and Flow master and flowtech and just about all other pipe makers LOL so prob an Off branded Flowmaster but welded for under 38 bucks Its a win for Rusty.

Not stock for 1977 But I am sure glad I didn't sell these 73 Laguna upper door panel they were to nice so ended up using them.
I have to paint the other side lower when paint gets here but Holy Smokes they look good on there and have a spot for my phone and the Lines on them will match the Grand Prix seats

Also scored some free to me Never used carpet hopefully will work for me as it's from a 65 GTO I would think it would as it's a wide car also ....I am only out maybe 10 bucks if not for shipping so will see tomorrow when I empty interior out
