Check with Vintage air. They mainly make aftermarket systems for older vehicles, but they can usually put together a factory looking system for most vehicles.

Hello all,
I am debating whether or not to install the JBA Headers on my 95 F250 5.8L. Anyone out there had any experience regarding pros and cons with this change? I think I have a exh manifold leak, which is partly driving this change.
Thanks- Sluggo.

What are some mods I can do to help out a carburated 1985 F-150 V-8?

I don't want to go all out because I live in an area that does annual
testing but I'd like to help it a little.

mike, i also have a 85 f150 v-8 5.8L. I bought an Edelbrock Performer
Inake (idle -5500rpm) with a edelbrock 600 cfm part # 1405 carb. i was very
impressed and satisfied with my results. i had power throughout my gears, i
have a man. 4 speed. you can get an intake with the egr and smog crap, i
chose not to. that should give you the swup you want at a price around $350.
try summit for the deal

I have JBA shorty headers on my 302. They have been on for about two
years, and I have been very happy with them. Installation was
uneventful. You will need a cat-back exhaust to go with the headers.

You didn't say which engine or carb you have, or what kind of help you're
looking for..... power? improved mileage? Both, neither or something else?

why do you say that you need a cat back exhaust system with the JBA system?
While I know that a cat back exhaust would help the performance, but I
believe that there is a major problem with not changing the system. What do
you know that I do not know?

Yeah I was a little vague there.

I have a nagging flat spot I can't cure and I figured since I was going to
be under there anyway replacing parts I should do it worthwhile.

I am looking for better freeway power and better mileage and I want to get
the engine to deal with the Dallas heat while running the A/C. Right now
its a 2 barrel, I believe its a 302 and has single exhaust. I say I believe
its a 302 because I can't tell superficially and the motor was replaced
shortly before I got it.

Subject: Vacuum gauge?

Hi all,

I'm getting ready to purchase a vacuum gauge and timing light to run some
tests on my '85 F250 460/T-19 and diagnose a choke problem. Question is, the
vacuum gauge is $40 at the local Harbor Freight, and I've found VDO in-dash
vacuum gauges for about the same price. My question is, could I purchase the
VDO unit and use it to diagnose my possible vacuum leak, and then turn around
and install it in the dash? I remember hearing that a vacuum gauge helps you
optimize your economy and identify potential problems. Is there any problem
with doing this? Where to I tee it in, and will this "use" some of my engine
vacuum?

Thanks.

Tim Clevenger

I just don't think you'll see any benefit from the headers when they are
blowing through the stock exhaust.

i went with long tube hookers. i noticed a big difference the more mods i
did to my motor. if i would have known how much trouble they are when
changing motors and gaskets i would have gone with the shorties.
