looking for long tube headers

i am looking for a set of long tube headers for a bbf that has the chevy exhaust pattern. i am running the eliminator heads with an a460 pattern exhaust. it is going in a straight frame truck so i have plenty of room. i want at least 2 1/4 diameter with a 4 inch collector. any ideas?

i also wonder if some long tube headers for a chevy application would work?

I have a set of BBC Camaro headers that I use to run on my TFS-A460 headed motor, before I had my Fab-Shop headers built. These were in my 93 F-150, but they only had 2" primaries and 3-1/2" collectors.

I sell them for cheap if interested?

Well headers for a BBC have a different Exhaust flange angle then a BBF . I think the BBC is like 4 Derg. different then a Ford. Not a Whole lot of different but enough to make things not fit right.

I have this set I built for my 1978 Ford 2 1/8" x 4" wheel well exit .

The problem with running a Chevy header on a Ford head (even though it has the same pattern on the port) is that the Ford head is something like 3/8" longer than the Chevy head because of the bore spacing....

hey wangdang, do you remember what the width of your frame rails were? it looks like they are going to be close.
