The PS problem isn't a problem for our years. We have a different setup than the earlier years.

Hooker headers will fit. I had a set.

If you go for headers I suggest you splurge and get ceramic coated. They look good, keep the heat down, reduce the noise, are easier to clean. But they cost more. Wink
Also, get some 'stage 8' header bolts. Do a search on the site, I did a write up. It's the best way to avoid leaks.

I have ceramic coated Hooker Competition headers - they fit awesome and don't hang down as much as the Hedman's. The collectors are a little close to the pan of my AOD, but the AOD is a wider-bodied transmission than the FMX.

You won't have any problems.

I have a set of headmans. They were originally put on with the fmx. Not issues and I have over 6 3/4 of ground clearance with 1" drop spring up front and 1" lowering blocks in back. I bought mine uncoated and had my local shop do Cerakote on the outside and insulkote on the inside. Ended up being the same money as buying them coated but a much higher quality coating than come on them.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

Mister 4 x 4,
                   I appreciate the photos with the measuring tape. What's amazing to me, is that on my car, I have stock manifolds and an exhaust system that at one time, was behind a built engine with ( swap meet ) headers. Because I tow with my car as well as drive it everyday, I've always thought I should run a better breathing exhaust, but my experience with the built engine and headers was that I crushed the headers within a week of putting it all together, so I yanked it all, put the original stock engine back in and had the muffler shop connect the pipes up.
    Now, after looking at yours, and others, photos, I believe the muffler shop must have made up an H-pipe and muffler set up that is lower than stock. My H-pipe on the driver's side only has 4" clearance to the ground, and the H-pipe on the passenger side had barely more at 4 3/8".
    Now I see that the FPP and Hooker Comps both have better ground clearance than my stock manifolds / H-pipe system, so I know my shop made H-pipes are the culprit. Great......Now, I've got to decide weather I replace my entire exhaust system ( need mufflers any way ) with an entire restorer kit with what I believe will have a tighter to the body H-pipe, or take a leap of faith and throw some more $$$$$at some headers. I hate being a Pragmatist, 'cause you KNOW I would dig the headers....

I ran hedmans on my 71 Grandé. I was very happy with the fit. Hookers are way to close to the trans pan for my liking.  I wouldn't want any more heat next to the trans.
