Michael, which headers are you using?96Mustang460cid said:I have an 1.5" dropped Pinto r&p. Using a motor plate, I have the oil pan .375" from the r&p. With my full length headers, I have a very limited 2-2.5" ground clearance. This is after adjusting my coil overs as high as they'll go. The collectors are tucked up ok-the problem is from the last 2-4" of the primary tubes.
I agree that it's not a necessity, but it sure does get the engine at a better angle, and allows a lower hood line. Probably more attractive for a street car than an all-out race deal.ONEBAD555NOTCH said:unless you have a-460 heads,you shouldnt need to drop the motor
Well it sounds easier than it really is, because the tubes all head towards the collector at different angles. Cut a section out of all the tubes and then only one or two will align back up. The rest will miss by a significant amount.Bigbub1968 said:What do you guys thinks about modifing a set of hooker headers to gain clearance, (cutting a section of them, and then re-welding) when dropping the k member 1.5"?
