Well I pulled my engine and am getting it bored, honed, balanced, the whole works...I have a 351w 4 speed, I purchased new edelbrock performer rpm matched set heads, intake, cam. Looking for good set of headers recommendations..(brand) and type (shorty or LP) I completely removed the exauhst system and am replacing that as well. Any ideas on the headers, I am a little concerned about clearing the clutch linkage.

IMHO, fit what will go on best & easiests which is a custom built header....

next- since you either don't have the time or $'s, get a long tbe heder since that will generate the best low end torque.

third- buy what will fit

Contact Stan at www.fordpowertrain.com. He probably has already solved this problem and hss the jigs to make what you need quickly.

Real quality stuff, but not cheap. They can be ceramic coated for you as well at a reasonable cost.

JBA Shorties, ceramic coated. You can't go wrong.

I too would recommend the JBA shorties. I do not have them on a manual transmission car but with the near stock exit of the header flange, it should be simple. ALSO, you get lots of ground clearance. John

My experience with JBA's and manual trans was not good. Hooker Comps worked fine. Fit was very good with manual trans.
