Can anyone suggest a set of hesders for a 68 Cougar that doesnt require major modificatins.... except to the exoust that is. Anyone with a good experiance with a certin type or brand, let me know:1zhelp:
I have a 351 W in my 69 Cat with an FMX Tranny. Be careful if you have a FMX. THe case is a lot wider than the C- series or 4 speed. I had flow tech headers that are full length and fit well against the engine but would not clear the Tranny. Also some times you have to plat with your steering to make them work. I/m getting shorty or block huggers to install next week.
On my 70 with a 351w I am running hooker competions headers. I have had 3 different transmissions in there. With the fmx they fit perfect. With the 4 speed I had to rework my z bar and still put a couple "clearance" dents in the tubes. With the AOD the collector flanges are right up against the flange on the pan, even after I massaged them a little but not enough to cause a problem.
