Actually they were $159.00

They're made for Summit by Pace Setter headers. I cannot see a visible difference between most unequal length shorty emissions headers. If you ask me they're all copying each other.

The welds and bends look to be of high quality and it has all the features of it's competitors.

I really bought them because I need to change the original 19 year old 02 sensor on my 86 EFI'd 302. All my buddies said don't even start the job without an extra known to be good manifold because it's almost a guaranteed break trying to extract it.

I priced manifolds and shipping, as every junkyard unit was already broken, repaired or missing. Once the pricing was in it became clear I could buy the headers, coat them and still save money compared to busting and replacing the stock 85-86 only R/H side manifold.

The icing on the cake is that these bolt up to this;

This improve custom bent stock position Y-pipe added a pile more torque and mileage and should really compliment and work well with the new smog headers.

I'm sure the new 02 sensor can't hurt things either.

Holy sh!t Six,

You gonna have a new truck by the end of the summer!

So you got the headers coated after you bought them or you bought them like that? For $159 you can't beat it!-Bob

How thick is the manifold flange? And do the tubes (before coating, not sure how thick that might be) look to be of a good thick gauge?

They look awful perty! [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

No I paid to have them coated not really for looks (though thanks Broncomania and Juice) but to try and make them last a few winters up here before they rust out.

The local Cerama-coater normally charges @ $140 American, but he cut me a significant break because they were so short(not allowed to say exactly how much).

Bob I hope to have a closer to new looking truck by Summer's end. Again, with the headers, I'm just killing time until I get my rear quarters back from the paint shop, then I can glue them on.

Broncomania

I'm dying to see the mileage figures too. The 02 sensor change should really help too, so whose to scientifically say which will do more ? I want a repeat of 2 Summers ago when I hit 22mpg on an American sized gallon ! That's gotta be close to a fullsized bronco record.

Juice

They were definately 3/8" flange before coating and the welds and bends look to be of good quality. I doubt you could dimple or dent the pipes themselves without really pounding on them with a hammer, they're pretty thick.

Here's the plug wire clearance on the driver's side;

Did everything you see here in 3 hours tonight(from off to on) before I packed it in to go to a cheap Tuesday movie;

Summit should pay you and Pepe a commision. I'll bet you sent them alot of business. Hell you got me wanting a set. I'll do without for now though. I'll go with manifolds untill I can drive it again. Although now would be ideal. Hmmm.

Will these headers fit an 81 with a 302?

I don't know how the non EFI Y-pipes run, but I'd guess, if the manifolds exit at the same angle, they would probably bolt up to your stock Y-pipe (guess).

They said they were only for 97-96, but they fit my 86 fine. If anything I have more room around the starter now.

You could always phone the toll-free Summit tech line.
