Re: Engine build advice 351w d4ae
I have a 408 in my 68 and the exhaust was the big issue as custom header I was quoted $3000 as no one in Australia put 351 in these models. After some investigation got a full flow master stainless system from the US for $750 Aud delivered.

I had the diff shortened 1.5 inches each side so I can fit 275x40x17 under the ass looks tuff...
Car is weekend driver and a few days at the track. Runs 11.5 @ 121mph hope this helps you out.
Did you end up having custom headers built? I used the hooker 6208s in my 68. 1 3/4 primaries with slip fit pipe on each side. They fit well but the flange in the headers was a little too narrow compared to my vic jr ports creating a bit of a mismatch. My 1/4 mile numbers are pretty much identical to yours but I am running quite a bit more lift and duration. I also run a vic jr intake and 950HP holley carb.
