Unhappy 1990 D21 Automatic Headers!!!!!!!!!!

Hi. I have a 1990 Nissan D21 2.4L single Cam with an AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. I bought some eBay headers, and they don't fit because of my shift linkage. Are there any "performance or aftermarket headers" That will fit my truck? I heard 240 headers work too. Please help me ASAP,I have it in a shop and need solutions ASAP. Thank you.

You missed it Joe. He did say a 2.4L. You must have been

Here is one for a 96-97 with an auto. The only difference is it setup for emissions and OBD II. You can plug off the extra ports for emissions.

I think you are out of luck. These trucks are 20 to 30 years old now, and any headers would need to pass California's stricter requirements. I don't think they can even be grandfathered in. Most of the companies that built them 20 to 30 years ago have moved on to building accessories for newer vehicles. More sales volume.

Can you have headers built in Californication?

Or, if not in a rush, setup an automatic search on eBay. Maybe some will come up, eventually.

I got a lot of homies out here with shops so getting some work done really isn't an issue if ya know what I mean

Getting custom built headers are PRICY out here though.

A little in a rush just because I've already started the work on my truck.
