Headers for 351W?
#1
Gathering up stuff for my 72 Coupe....

It will have a 351w and automatic trans. I would like to put headers on it. Looking at Summitt, I see some headers, but they all seem to be for 351w but not specific for this body style. Does anyone have a part number for some that have been tried and fit properly? I think I would prefer long headers if they don't hang too low, but not dead set on them. I just don't want issues with clearance anywhere like starter or shock tower. Thanks! Earl

It's hard to clear the shock towers and the steering box.
I used the long tube headers I had on the 302 on my 351w after the engine swap and it worked fine.
I could try and look if I still have the reference somewhere but I think they've been discontinued.
When I decided to put on a stock style repro exhaust I found out that Hedman make shorty headers specifically for 351W swaps on 123 Mustangs.
I got them through Summit.
Here are the search results for 289, 302 and 351W for 1971 Mustangs.

As the 302 is a Wndsor too, those should fit but I won't guarantee it as the 351W is wider.
I know that the shorties for the 351W swap fit but it's a tight fit. I used the ceramic coated ones and the finish is still immaculate after a few years. I can recommend them.

I like my Hedman 88300 longtubes. They went in fairly easy and the price was right.
