wuts up guys, my friends and I are attempting to install the custom headman headers on my 302, and it doesnt seem like it wants to fit. (The pass side has the one tube that goes under the crossmember). Is there any tricks? We needed to semi-pull the motor just to get the collectors to fit between the fender and bellhousing...but when we finaly fit them in, they dont line up with the ports and seem to be pinched between the firewall and the bellhousing...
Aren't you supposed to put the headers in from below?..You may still have to jack the engine a little from side to side but it should be no big deal...Do you have the correct trans in the car?..I heard they take a special small bellhousing for an auto car but I'm not sure about a stick car...My brother has a set on his 78 king cobra and he didn't have any problems.

we tried coming up from the bottom, but it didnt want to happen. I have the stock 4 spd manual. I heard that i might have to repalce a mount or something, but i cannot find anything online to support that.

i love my mustangs but all the 74-78 mustangs is good for is chop cut rebuild into a pro stock ride.
Sometimes is best to we keep our mouths shut and have someone think you're a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
The one's I had had a slip connector in the #4 tube as well I cut the head flange and installed the middle 2 tubes then installed the #1 and #4 tubes after. I did have to jack the motor up slightly to get them to slide past though I believe.

ive only heard that the headers fit the small bellhousing C4, And dont fit the manual ... Sorry.
I don't know if hedman made two different headers for this application(I doubt it) but my brother's car is a manual trans and the headers fit great.
Hmm maybe i was thinking of another Mustang II owner that had a 302 T5 combo.. I think that the best fitting headers though were the old Cyclone/Blackjack headers. But those havent been made for a long time. Maybe scrounge Ebay for a couple of months.
ALSO ALSO!! I forgot that Hooker Makes some sweet Super Comps that emulate the old cyclone style.
They are pricey though!! @ $400+ Ceramic coat are $620
