2001 SC2
Default '92 header downpipe/flexpipe

When new (such as walker part# 44539), does it come with all the hanger hardware or just the portion that's directly welded to the pipe?

IIRC the stock down-pipe has a "tab" thats welded to the pipe (just ahead of the flex-joint), then the hanger is bolted to that tab with 2 bolts and the other end of it bolts to the engine/transmission brace.
Not sure how, right now, to hang it without that intermediary piece if the new down-pipe doesn't come with it. Don't think I've got any scrap metal that'd do the job laying around...


Either I misinterpreted the ad...or there's another box coming that isn't mentioned w/ the single USPS tracking number I got.
...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

It only comes with the part welded to the pipe. The rest of the hanger is on your car and is reusable.

When I installed the header on my '95 automatic, I didn't get the hanger from the pick-n-pull so I made my own--it was quite simple. I don't recall exactly what I did, but I believe I just attached a small metal angle to the included bracket on the downpipe (such that it went up a bit, then turned and went horizontal), and drilled a hole in the horizontal part, lining up with one of the vertical bolts in the transmission case, and just stuck it on the bolt (as one would put a washer).

Not when your car came with the stupid California emission log manifold stock.

That's an idea, will have to try it. Thanks.
