    Headers

    So it doesn't look like the stock 5.0 headers will clear the inner shock tower?? (Bummer) What have you guys with V-8's done for headers?? I am looking for a good set at a good price. I would even be interested in a good used set if anyone has some. I can ceramic coat them myself. I've seen them in Summit but $600 for a set if out of the question. Budget is getting very tight right now. Thanks..

    I have Hedman Elite 88408 shorties on mine. I needed the shorties to be compatible with the RRS steering setup.

    Here are the same headers in standard grade tubing and without the coating.

    I have these headers (the Hedman Elite) on Edelbrock Performer RPM heads.

    The injection is good. The fuel part is finished. I'm working on the EDIS ignition now.

    Patrick, I got a set of those headers today and just wondered do they fit well? or do I need a big hammer, they look really close, the gaskets look like they were made to fit a 221-260 exhaust port..it was time for headers on my car years ago, anything I need to know?? thanks john h

    My right side header went in easily from above. It took maybe five minutes.

    The other side was a bit more of a challenge. It was hitting the steering box. I beat on it with a 2lb hammer but it wouldn't go. I ended up modifying the header flange. I took it to Jim Green's Performance and had them build up the flange with weld and then re-machine the flange by a couple of degrees to kick the collector in about 1/2". It is still a bit of a headache to get that one in. It must go in from the bottom and snake in past the bell housing and steering box. Pulling the pitman arm would make it a lot easier.

    Mmmmmm.... Hamburgers.

    I really think mine was a fluke. Many people have used these on Falcons without mods. I'll help you out if you like.
