Planebender or anders e. What header did you get to fit the GP-88? Anything that can be bought at DA or chief Aircraft?

Thanks, Steve Mullis

A DA 85 header will work. The port is round instead of rectangular on the GP**, but it has enough overlap to seal all the way around. For the 176 I modified a set of DA150 headers to match the ports exactly.

I cannot believe the forum bot edited the 88 out of the engine name in my post above.

Hi Steve, I think I would just treat it the same as the 85 and try a 10 3/4" Header. The simplest solution for now on the Header seems to be modifing the DA-150 header. But I don't know of a wrap around style header with that flange on it.

Hi Dave,
Keep us up to date on the 3w 210 project if you would. I'm running the 3w200 with stock length headers at 6" plus coupler and leader on the cans. Comes out to 8.5"; and I think 3w is recommending 7.9 to 8.7 . Just curious to see if changing the header to other than stock makes any difference.

No problem Rian, I will start with a 8.5" header on the 210.

Hi Snooper, The Large Canisters are 14oz ea. I would use a 10.5" header.
