Just a thought as I was looking at stock manifolds. Want to see what you think. What do you think would be the result if I make a set of "headers" that mimic the design of the stock manifolds. I know that they would have to flow better just by materials (less obstructions in piping). Any thoughts would be great. Getting frustrated with what is available for our II's.

I have a set of Hedmans for my car, but would rather have some shorties if they were available at a reasonable cost.

Another thought would be the GT40P Explorer manifolds. The way they are routed would probably look awfull though.

Have you modified your hedmans to help clearance. Have been told that they are easy to crush. Just trying to find out which designs would have the best clearance.

Why not just go and have the stock manifolds extrude honed? I'm sure having a custom set of headers made would cost big $$$...talked to a guy a few years back who had a custom set of headers made for his Cobra II and it cost him about $900 for the pair.
