has any one found a supplier for headers in the lower mainland or vancouver island .What i need is a set of headers for a 79 f250 4x4 460 or does some one have a used set kickin around that they would let go for a decent price the only ones ive found are all out of the states any help would be great
When i was checking my order status (gettin some bling for my flareside) on summit i did a quick search on some big block heders and here are some i came up with, although none of them are 4wd specific any muffler shop can modify them for clearence to work for your truck. Here they are (shipping costs roughly between 8-20 dollars depending on where its shipped):
Dynomax WLK-85050 $157 american roughly 200 canadian; for 73-79 2wd trucks, Flowtech BIG-12560FLT $148.99 american~ 190 canadian; for an 80's and up ford 4wd, Hedman HED-89200 $135.88~ 170 canadian for class c motorhomes 75-91.

Just bending the tubes or the collector, its nothing to big as long as the headers are reasonably close. Really if you hav a tourch and a pipe bender (a hand held one) that can go up to 2" you should be able to mod them yourself. And look for 460 headers, i've found that its easier to be less specific then search through the results to get what you want.
If you are willing to go throught the fab process (or get a muffler shop to do it) i say get a set for a 2wd and save yourself 500-600 bucks. The ones i would look at are the dynomax headers (i posted above) or the flowtech ones.
I just remember why you can't find cheap headers for your 460 truck. Ford never offered a 460 in a 4wd truck till 83. Thats why everything you find costs major $$. Also after reading some threads it seems that L&L products (make lots of 460 prroducts for swaps) might havesomething that'll work for you.
