I have a set of Castle Headers on my LX, and they fit okay in a tight space, but I am wanting to bend them 5mm here and there for better clearance (p/s crossmember bolt, steering cotter pin on D/S) so I can start on the exhaust. Taking them out means half pulling the engine out, so I want to do in situ, also to make sure I am bending right.
They are already ceramic coated unfortunately, however the coater said heating to bend is no problem, as long as I do it little by little.
My question is, as I don't have any Oxy set up, do you reckon I will get the heat I need from one of these Propane torches?
