Hi Don.
I went with the ceramic coated BBK 79-93 mustang shorty headers connected to a 2.5" H pipe exhaust. Stainless will start getting blue as you use them from the heat.

I hate to say it but the past month or two I've been lazy. I've have gotten out a number of times driving. I was in Germantown last weekend. I've got all the stuff to put the heater in if I simply make the time to do it.

I've used the Ford Racing shorties and the BBK shorties, both in ceramic. The BBK headers held up much better for me.

I have the same application/year BBK chrome shorties and they're also discolored from the heat. Other than that, I'm happy with them. I'd probably get the ceramic coated if I had to do it all over.

Mine had plenty of room for the starter. If I had it to do all over again, I'd consider the gear reduction starter to save about 5-10 pounds.

I'm a dyslexic typist, so I feel your pain. I have plenty of room, but I'm running a complete TCI frame and MII suspension. I also have a 33" steering column. I angled the mounting bushings for the rack and pinion to give the input a more direct angle to the steering wheel. It all seems to work well.

Since I dont tune for max HP I use whatever fits and then finish by budget..
off topic but this is a very nice truck, hate to see it burn to the ground because of a cheap $1.99 plastic fuel filter. I would toss that thing immediately and get a glass or metal one. I have seen those crack from engine heat and age and it isnt pretty!

I've seen the glass type break also and cause fires.
