I recently purchased a 68 cougar with a stock looking 351C 4v. I pulled the motor out to work on the body and since its out I'm going to add some easy upgrades. I was wondering what kind of headers can I put on, I've good and bad things about shortys. Maybe hookers are the way to go? I would appreciate the help.

Welcome to the board Johnny..... depends on what you want ultimately. If you go long tubes you will have to lower the steering ram with a drop bracket and you really need to weld it on unless you go with the one WCCC sells that is much beefier and wraps around. The only real advantage they give you is a bit more top end high RPM performance. Otherwise you can save yourself some grief and go with shorties and it won't make a big enough difference to notice. It will cut down on heat transmission into the car also......and ground clearance will be better. There you have it......
