This part, the Y pipe bolts into it, can I remove it?

Recommended Posts

It looks like I could use shorter studs if I remove this part.  

Will the y pipe bolt directly to the block?



I am going to do the Weber conversion, so no need for the exhaust gas.

So, is there any good reason to leave it on there?

Exhaust header will be too short to reach the heads without hitting the cradle. 

And you can just cut off the pipe, unscrew the fitting and drop a quarter down in there. 

Those spacers don't feed exhaust gas, they feed fresh air INTO the exhaust to charge the cat. So a Weber swap does not preclude their use. The converter will still benefit from the AIS system if you leave it functional.
