I have Hooker #6116 super comps in my 67' Falcon w\351w and old street heat heads and I'm in need of a new set of headers. The #6116s are 1 5\8" primarys and I want to go to 1 3\4" primarys and the only ones I've found are the Hooker #6208 for early Mustang 351w swap. Does anyone know if these will fit without to much tweeking (BFH)? The #6116s fit practically every thing from Mustangs to Torinos to Fairlanes and Falcons. On the Hooker website it says the #6208s will fit Mustangs with at least 33 and 3\4" between the shock towers due to sag, that is not a problem. I just don't want to spend the money on tube just to have to send them back or end up eating them. Thanks for any info.

Just FYI, I just installed a set of the 6208's on my 74 Comet. There were several modifications that were necessary but overall it was not a bad installation. I did have to put a notch in each shock tower about the size of a half dollar, had to space up the motor about 1/4" and had to put a small dent in the firewall on each side. I"m sure your application would require different modifications, but these are the things that I had to do.

Thanks for the info, for awhile there I didn't think I'd ever get a reply.
