Re: Shorty / Mid-length headers

Thank you all for the sound advice and support. My mind is made up and I already have an immediate sense of relief. Have a set Hooker headers I need to go and sell now...

Cheers.

Re: Shorty / Mid-length headers

http://www.fordpowertrain.com/FPAindex/Mustang1.htm Here is a thought they do fit well but are spendy. Yes, I considered these as well. The more I dwell on the subject though, the more I find myself wanting to just abandon the header option all together. I'm really not concerned about additional ho...

The shorty headers are actually even harder to install, and they interfere with the power steering. The Sanderson headers don't fit ...

Shorty / Mid-length headers

Hello all...I did search for a common string on this subject, but couldn't find what I needed. So for reasons unimportant to this discussion, I have had to pull my 390 engine out of my '67 GT for the 2nd time now while in my possession. When I originally purchased the car, it came with a brand new s...

Max crankshaft bores

Hello all...(another rebuild question), Hopefully I manage to get a majority consensus on this one. Re-re-building the 390 (long story...) and I believe the crankshaft will need machining. A mechanic friend showed me the current stamping on the crank: .020 on the mains and .010 on the throws. He thi...

Correct coil mount 390 BB

Hello all, Does anyone have a good picture/description of how to correctly mount the coil on my 390 BB? It came with a Mallory Promaster mounted on the fender well. I want to get back to the correctly mounted canister coil set-up. I understand that it sits on the intake manifold, but am unsure about...

Your Cat.
Do what you want.
If you "drive" your car & like corners, then do it.
It does make a difference. Add xport brace & reinforced X-member. All can fixed easily.
Couldn't agree more...follow your gut and do what you want to do. Your car, your glory....
