To all, About to buy new headers. Lookin at the Hedman shorty header part #88400. Anyone have any experience with these?? Complaints, recommendations, fitment problems etc...Please reply and advise. My car is a 64 futura hardtop, 289ci, auto B&M floor shift, power-steering. No other accessories attachments etc.. I hope to end up with 2-1/2" from the header back and get the noise away from the car. I need some help here yall. What are yall runnin?

I ran Headman headers on several cars and a couple Bronco's over the years.I had no problems at all with them.They seem to make decent performance. The last set Iran I ran them on my FFR Cobra for 12 years and had no problems at all and the performance was really good .I have a set of Doug Thorny full lenght headers on my Falcon.They are a tight fit , but they seem to be of good quality. The performance I get from this set up is great.

I got my Doug Thorley headers from 4wheelonline. They don't have the best fit but no leaks whatsoever. The headers do look great and are well made.

Thanks yall, Just wanted some info before I pull the trigger. The long headers on the car now are shot, old and of unknown manufact, also hang down to low for the stance I have on the car. Speed bumps, rail road tracks etc.. Hoping to hear from Hedman tech dept soon. I aint really concerned about the performance, HP, fuel effenciency etc., but fit is a real concern. Thanks again. Stay in touch and stay safe, BamaBrown.
