a common mustang problem is that the airconditioning condensation will drip onto the headers causing it to crack.  i know there was a writeup somewhere about how to create a "channel" that will irrigate the condensation elsewhere.  does anybody know how to do this and what is involved?  thanks.

okay to be honest, i just went to the local aquarium store and bought 1" diameter tubing, which was a perfect fit.  it was about a foot-long and i stuck one side onto that condensation dump.  the other end of the tube is hovering over a gap in the engine bay.  its nothing fancy lol.

Whatever works.  Something that is not fancy is better than your exhaust cracking!!
