Hi, New here, 63 grand prix 4 speed,462, just picked up original 67 ram air manifolds. After buying them and looking at the placement of steering box ,not so sure. Any advice or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

They were not designed for B bodies!The factory did things for a reason.That is why there was 2 diff exhaust systems designed for our cars.Gen 1 birds and gen 2 birds use diff manifolds.Gen 1 bird stuff will fit 61-66 B bodies.Engine X members and steering positions are in diff locations on the diff body styles.Tom

A-body manifolds fit A-bodies. F,B & G body manifolds fit F,B & G bodies. End of discussion.

Thanks for the info, after buying them ,looks like drivers side won't fit because of steering box and 4speed linkage. Going to long branch now , buying thru the mail sucks up here in alaska...

The Long branch add 15 Hp. They do work well and don't leak.
