Joe,

Very nice! :D Did you say it was fun to fab your own headers?? :lol:

Let's see, 11.2" deck height, alum. block, 665 CID or bigger,,,,,,,, :shock:,,,,,,,I'd say we're in trouble :( in regards to that fastest Mustang match race, aren't we?

Later,

Very nice job Joe, fabricating headers can be challenging even when you have the clearence :!: What size primaries and collectors are you using?

Hey Joe,
How are the headers coming along ? they look awesome and if you dont mind me asking what primary tube lengths are you getting.

I must have missed this post the first time around. Great job Joe 8) Going through the "A" arms is a great idea, I'll have to remember that the next time around. Wasn't that fun Joe? Actually I like doing the mockup part, kind of like doing a big puzzle. What I hate is the sitting at the table and welding part. :cry:

Looks great Joe. Snaking the tubes through the K-member is a good way to go! One of my tubes is like that also.

whats your welding setup? I will probably be building a set also and was going to gas weld them but was unsure about the look of the welds. judging from the size of discoloration and the small welds, it looks like you gas welded them. they look great. my tig $$$ is going to buy heads instead.... :roll:

Great work!

I would love to be able to fabricate that good. Then I could finish my 87 Turbo Coupe 460 single/front mount turbo installation.
