Default can i use these pipes?

i have a 1600dp single carb solex pretty much stock can i use these pipes chirco says to use these with a dual carb setup but i cant afford that yet and i like the look of these pipes better than my risty old stinger. i also noticed today that the pipes leading into my intake manifold im guessing are for the heater are not blocked off should they be?

I have them on a stock 1500.No problems.The pipes leading to the intake are to keep the intake from icing up.

That just means those will clear your dual carb intakes. There is another version that looks the same but will not clear the dual carbs.

Double check the fit on those, you might have to remove them to set the valve lash, Sort of a pain, but really a VERY necessary procedure for engine maintenance.

They are probably too large dia for optimum performance on a mild/small motor.

Most people buy them based on appearance, and accept the cost in torque/hp.
