I didn't want to run headers on my 72, but even with Super 44s, the stock manifolds aren't cutting it for me.Still too quiet.

The question is...who has run headers on 72-73 351c 4 speed cars with NO clearance or fitment issues, and what headers were they? Thanks.

From what I understand FPA makes some really decent headers but they ain't cheap either.

Hooker used to make the correct headers for your application, but they had stopped making them approximately eight years ago. You might be able to find a used pair for $400.00 to $500.00. There is a pair for sale for $727.54 plus shipping. If you want to see them Click here.

For that price I definitely would go fpa. Much better clearance and a ball and socket collector.

My first GTS had a 4-speed, I took a automatic set and had the rear pipe cut and re-positioned so the Z-bar linkage would clear.

I have a unused set of Hooker SuperComp 6203 I'd sell.  They have some shelf wear and one of the collector flanges has a minor bend.  I would need to get $400+ shipping to be willing to let them go.
