I have had both!. The 6116's were a B*itch to install. Had to jack the motor up on both sides, plus remove idler arm. Also had to run the Accel #276S shorty plug to clear the headers with my Windsor Sr heads. These are decent plugs, BTW, just nobody locally carried them. These headers will clear a C-4, but will not clear a C-6 or Powerglide.

The 6208's have much better build quality, fit easily. Didn't have to jack the motor up or remove anything. Regular plugs also work with the same heads.

Go with 6208's.

Rad,

Are you running a 302 or 351W? The #6208 headers are for a 351W. I can't see ANY headers fitting a 351W in a 64 Falcon with any ease at all!

Is the Falcon's engine bay exactly like the 65-66 mustang? If so, the #6208 Hookers might fit on a 351W, but it will be tight. The 67-up mustangs have a bit more room to work with.

The 65-66 mustang super comps are part #6111, and are supposed to work with World Products heads. The regular comps are NOT designed for WP heads.

Good Luck!

Ok, can anyone help on what headers to use we had a set of 351 W heads in the comet that were made for 69 stang that fit even with the clucth linkage a few years ago, but hooker does't make them anymore. 66 comets are like the 66-67 fairlane big bodys.

oops, My bad.

When you listed the 6116 and 6208 I automatically thought you were running a 351W.

There is a company that lists a header for a 62-71 Fairlane or Torino with those heads.
http://www.headersbyed.com/carhdrs.htm

You might check them out. Word is that you won't find any better made header, but that they are a little slow and the guy can be a pain to deal with.
