Re: Headers questions.

Dont wrap them. The wraps apparently hold moisture and make the coating rust faster. Not 100% on this, but thats just what I've heard the grape vine. I love my MACs/Prochamber/Flow Set up.

I asked about the fitment and he said he had no problems
I read most of the posts, but considering your stance the LTs (they meet your budget), here's what to consider. The LTs wont warp unless under serious heat. It has equal length tubes, so warping the mounting brackets to the heads is the only risk. I would go new and wrap them in fiberglass wrap; it works. If you can return them...probably wont happen. Only way those brackets will warp is if the owner took them off hot. I sincerely doubt that. that means that when they cooled to the C-heads, they had returned to natural manufactured shape. then again, that's why Ford has metal gaskets, sold for a pretty dollar, to combat those issues.

considering its Pypes headers, and the posts, Hmmm, I just fit your shoe. If its the best you can do, then go for it. I sincerely doubt any portion of the manifold is warped at all.

Hey, ask him some questions, like why did he remove them? How hard was it to remove them? did he have to raise the car on a lift and so on. the objective is to figure out if the dang LTs were cold when he removed them. good luck.

---------- Post added at 09:34 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:29 PM ----------

Trick question sounds like this: Dang it must have been very hot to hold those dang LTs and unbolt them at the same time. that's not a true statment since he has to drop the K-member to remove them. We're getting close; I hope. LOL. Hopefully someone comes along and tell me I'm fullacrap. In a low budget issue I would jump on them, sortta.

That statement would be very true if wraps extend below engine level. I have shorties, and I wrapped them, but then they are snugged next to the engine so so chance of staying wet there.

If that guy took a set of lt's off hot he'd have no use of his hands for awhile!!!! Like sticking your hand on a hot stove burner that's on....

Am thinking of a shallow pocket lie you. Shallow pockets, more risk taking.

Re: Headers questions.

I bought my LTs off of a guy on Craigslist, they were brand new, never been ran on a car. It was just a B**ch putting them on, If I ever have to do anything with taking them off the K-Member is coming out too

Re: Headers questions.

I bought my LTs on craigslist as well. Paid $200 shipped to my door for a brand new/never installed $700 set of coated hedman tork-stepped headers. You can find good deals just be very very careful
