Sanderson makes a universel set and FRP also makes an excellent header.

Hate to say this but the set of headers I got from Sanderson didn't fit worth a hoot, nothing lined up correctly and the O2 sensor bungs required retapping before the sensors would go in. Took me about 20 hours of install-and-remove rework to get them to fit. Not recommended.

Seen two stainless header sets, both from EFI 460s, each set seems to be made by a different manufacturer. No ID marks on either set. One set has since been sold, the other was just installed into Van's 1968 International Scout along with the F3TE-headed 460/5-speed driveline. :shock:

We've been wondering where we can find more of those headers as well; bump this thread back to the top (with posted info) when you find out.

Take a look here: http://www.darkhorseperformance.com/

It's my understanding that they have some other 460 headers not shown, as well. As noted FPA lists some too, spoken of highly by owners.

Stan's Headers also makes stainless steel shorty headers for 460 (EFI & standard available):

L&L Products also makes 460 shorty headers (electroless nickel shield plating-lifetime warranty).

OK, it's time to highjack this thread:
I want to hear more about Van's '68 Scout!
