Default Headers for 99 auto

anyone know where to get a set, or do you just modify ones for the manual trans setup. (i know, an auto SUCKS, but right now i'm too lazy to do a swap) I may have a SC lined up, and if i'm ripping the car apart, i figure i might as well do the exhaust at the same time. This is my DD, so i don't wanna go crazy on it, but i have had no luck searching for a header that is compatable with an auto trans (begining to think i may be better off getting a 2001+ manifold and calling it a day) ANYONE? Thanks

I'm sorry to hear about the amputation of your left leg. :(

It's just header, not plural at all.

A manifold is what your looking for. One with a turbo flange one it.

Not worth spending the money on.

You would be one in a million going the auto route. You are better buying a cheap 5-speed one, at the long run will save more money.

You are adding a header? Are you sure the trans can handle the 4 extra hp you'll gain?
