2V Headers
#1
Ok. So I figured out some of the noises my car was making. Squealing was the power steering pump bearing (replaced pump) other noise is a crack in the passenger side exhaust manifold. Since it is cracked I am going to bite the bullet and go with a set of headers. Any suggestions? 73 Grandé with Power steering, FMX Auto, 351c 2V. Thanks in advance. If you have a set that fits and are looking to sell them let me know as well.

Hooker Competition headers. I have the ceramic-coated headers, but the painted ones are less expensive. Mine fit fine with an AOD (which is slightly wider than an FMX) - you should have no problems with them.

Any issues with them clearing power steering? I read one place where a bracket is needed for power steering and another where it was not?

Bracket not needed on our cars. only earlier cars with the slave hydraulic cylinder on the drag link attached to the chassis, they need a drop bracket.

Cool. Thanks for the help. This has eliminated a lot of confusion.

I have hookers with a 351 but my tranny is a 4r70w. I had the same headers with my old FMV that fit too. I personally regret getting the hookers. They set very low and my go curbed on the very first test drive. I think FPP would be a better option. Maybe Hedman

Wow - mine sits stock height, and there's something like 6 1/2" of clearance to the headers. Hedman's hang down really low from my understanding.

Here's mine on a smallish set of 14" rims with 195/70 may-pop tires with questionable air pressures.

   

The bottom edge of the metal piece across the lift represents the top surface of the lift, which the tires are on as they would normally sit on the ground (drive-on lift):

   

Of course (and I just realized) that's measured to one of the tubes - the collector hangs down another 3/4" or so. So, call it 5 1/2" - just to be fair.

These are Hedmans:

I don't know about FPAs - someone else will have to chime in on those.

Hope this helps.

Eric those are Hooker Super Comps on the lime green Mach 1. I had a set. I can tell by the long collector tubes.

I had Hedman's on my 71 351c 2v Grandé. They fit very well and had no bottoming out or leaks. The hooker comps are way to close to the trans pan for no apparent reason as you can see in sdstangs pics. I just helped my brother install FPA headers on his 70 boss 302. These headers are quality but not cheap.
