First thing, the headers even say that the black paint that they come with is non heat paint. So I spray it with 1400* VHT ceramic paint $8. It holds up well. Nothing is as good as Jet Hot Ceramic coating. But it costs as much as the headers do. So...... I budget, hah.
Ya I noticed the price for the coating was crazy! What do you mean the cross bracket? Any pics of this?

I meant a thread about my engine rebuild....as in cams, rocker arms, etc. I'm sure headers will be part of that so I'll post pics of them too. I wasn't saying yours weren't good enough, just figured I'd add to it. One can never have too much information!

If you guys want coated headers, Hedman has factory coated stuff for a good price. I've got 89516s (same as 89510, but HTC coated) that I got from summit for $512 + shipping. Mine are a year and a half old and look good. I got price quotes from several coating shops and found the factory coated headers were better priced once I added shipping. Don't forget to get the y-pipe and collector coating when price shopping, that adds another $100 or so to the price.

Yes, I know they sell the coated ones. The coating is well worth it on my show truck/f100, but the 89510 are only $270 shipped for the whole kit. The coated ones are double!

I guess we all gotta look at what were doing with our trucks and how long we plan to keep them. I plan to keep my truck for a long time, and I don't want to pull the headers for paint every few years (I'm pretty lazy that way..) so for me the coated stuff is worth it. I had to save my nickels for a couple months longer, but to me it's worth it.

I would agree that the coated headers are worth it. However, for the price. i would much rather buy L&L's....

Hello there.
I just signed up as we are now F truck owners.
Rescued an 89 F350 4x4 5 speed that was parked in a field for
5 yrs due to a blown ZF transmission.
I now have it running but have cracked stock manifolds, with
about 6 studs broken off.
I figured if I go through the trouble of fixing them, I may as well
go to headers.

This is a low budget build, so I am interested in the Hedmans.
I can get them for $270 CDN but the parts guy says customers have
fitment problems with them and there are no returns on this particular
product!

Ceetwarrior, I see they fit your 97. What is your report card on them
now that some time has passed? My truck has rear ABS and it is located
on the drivers side frame rail, just in front of the slave cylinder. Does
your truck also have this? I was wondering if the headers will interfere
with it?

Does the Y-pipe need any modifications to fit?

Were any other mods or hammer beating required?

Thanks.

The headers fit great. Not sure on the ABS thing you're talkin about.

So what supporting upgrades do I need for the fuel side when opening up the exhaust?

It wont be that drastic in change. Probably just one size bigger on your main jets...
