Headers: FPS, Hooker Comp, Sanderson? 351c 4v

Hemikiller;251485 Wrote:Hooker Comps are some of the easiest headers to install that I've ever done. No need to jack the engine. A little foggy, but IIRC, the PS goes in from the top, DS comes up from the bottom. Only reasonably priced header that works with the clutch linkage.

You'll be modifying the clutch linkage when you put in the TKO 600. (I have some pics of the mods we made but we'll save them for a TKO 600 install thread)
The FPA headers only needed the drivers engine mount to be shaved a little...This was my old "73" engine mount which had been modified by previous owner to fit the old Hooker headers. FPA headers, shown here, needed the same modification, just not as much. Pic is showing the head sitting directly on the block,(for mock up) without the gasket, which would raise it and the header away from the engine mount a little more than shown.

Nice.. Do you prefer one over the other?

I prefer the long tubes since the FPS were mid-length. My Super Comps don't hang low, then again I have had them for around ten years. Maybe production changed? I doubt it, also my car is lowered 2.5" all around.
