Ok, got some Keith Eckert exh manifolds. Bolted them up to my bbc and the tailpipes which are suposed to be std Bravo location are not lining up with my thu hull pipes. The KE's are about 2 inches too high.

Looking for some good suggestions as to how to get them to line up.

I don't see any easy way to get them to line-up short of re-locating your transom exhaust flange/fittings.
How much space do you have between the transom fittings & your new K/E manifold outlets front to back?

only have about 3 inches between KE tailpipe and thru hulls.

Surely someone has had this same problem before.

Waiting,

I've heard of guys using wedge shaped spacers to get better alignment.

The wedges are 95% cheaper than new tails.
