I would always run headers over manifolds. I like the sound and the power. They are 03 04 cobra mustang long tubes. BBK I think. We had to modify 2 tubes to clear the steering, but worth it

Fred,

Sorry I had typed that on my phone I meant how do they compare on WIDTH to the factory manifolds? I have a navigator motor in my frame now but the factory manifolds are pretty close the the frame.

Do you have any pictures of where the headers meet under the engine/transmission and any more pics of each side of the headers near the frame? I may have mounted my engine lower than you did...

I bought the pypes 3" stainless universal kit with x pipe



My buddy built the transmission cross member and exhaust



I went with pypes violator mufflers. My exhaust will exit through cut outs in the running boards

Work continues on the truck. Took a lot of applications, but finally got the oak stained the way I want it. Getting clear coat at the body shop now



Got my brakes put together and bled. I also got the truck started for the first time. Hopefully driving this spring
