    Pipes only = good to go & you can tweak your 05 carb a bit to adjust (touch of fuel), if necessary. Won't know until you test run & see if it's even necessary.

    Make sure you seal header/pipe joint well & recommend getting new pipe clamps. Dab of High-Temp silicone (liquid copper) will do the trick - have fun!

    Using the term "fuel management" really applies to EFI. Is that what you have?
