header help

I have a 67 Mustang. The ? is this. I need to get some headers that will fot the car. I have the a-heads from Eliminator. This is a 557 (460). They have the chevy big block exhaust flanges. I have cut the shock towers back to help. I found some one that could do it but they dont have a fabricator right now. Does any one know were or how I can get some from? please let me know..

first off all you can't put that engine in that perticular car without removing the shock towers. The exhaust ports are raised and make it wider so that no Header will work, the angle you have to come out is almost strait down to miss everything, and with that big a cube with those heads I know of noone that makes one as of yet.

I have cut the shock tower back and have about 3 in of room. I can come out and up to mack it. I was told by one shop they have a jig for it. But no one to weld them. Well in a nut shell>>>>

Where are you located? One of us might be able to point you to a fabricator in your area.
