Hooker Comps

Scotty,
I am thinking that the Crites headers with 2" primarys will be better for my 521. Your thoughts? Only running 6,000 rpm max.
I also have a Stefs pan that is wider than stock which may be a problem with Crites.

I need a price from you on the Hookers. If I offered you $300 for new headers would you want to sell them? Crites are $330.

Thanks,
Dave

The 1 7/8" hookers are on the small side for a 521. 2" would be better...

I know of no out of the box full length headers that fit the full size fords though some of the hooker mid size stuff from the mid to later 70's can be adapted with minor mods.
