Default Hedman header on my 88.5????

Does any body know if the Headman header 39500 will fit on my 88.5 samurai?
it list's it will fit 86 to 88 so i just want to make sure!
I called Headman headers and he wasnt sure but said he had never heard of a problem. If you look at the pacesetters they list 86 to 93 so it makes me wonder
Any help would be appriceated thanks

also is one better than the other Headman or Pacesetter???

maybe they won't work with TBI engines??? I have no idea why they wouldn't work with all 1.3L 8 valve engines. Nothing has changed over on the exhaust side as far as I know, and the intake changes shouldn't be affected by a change in the exhaust manifold.

another thing, you might check into powder coating the header, mine has gone to crap (rust) over the years, and before i put a new one in, will be getting it powder coated. just a thought

I too want to go with the Hedman Header. I read on one of the sites the paint is just a thin "shipping" coat so I plan on chemically stripping it and using a DYI ceramic paint, after I weld in a 18mm bung for the O2 sensor. May have to extend the wire, which is not good.

Then 2" pipes, glasspack and tailpipe w/o the cat as my county does not emmision test.

All after I pay off the new riding lawnmower I had to buy for the Mrs on Memorial day!

Do you have to have the 02 sensor- or any sensor on a Weber in a '86 model if you don't have emmissions testing in your state?
Sorry to hijack the thread..

Yeah Iv got a Weber on my sammy my problem is the emissions in my county are really strick so im gonna have to register it through this guy I work with. It would be way hard to get my sammy back in to smog passing again I got this sammy about a year ago and the kid i bought it from never had to emission it so half of all the plugs are gone. Im basicly doing a frame up resto on this lil beast so I guess could redo all of that
