1972 Torino

Alrights guys after 15 years its time to get headers, another set for my ride.
72 torino sport fastback, 351 clev 4v closed chambers heads c-6, I spent 2 hours looking and there is not one header aval. for my car with a C-6 for under 699. summit and jeggs both have 2v set ups. Hooker is not an option, i have tried them and they sucked, unless somethings changed. Your input would be greatly apprieciated. I do run a complete exhaust 2.5 all the way out. this all started with changing out my flow masters to Dyno max and found one of my primary tubes are split. So its time, but I am pretty frustrated in my search. Geo

Try Hedman. I've had good luck so far with a set on my 69 Fairlane (not Torino) convertible, ex FMX now Tremec 3550 with Ford Econoline hydraulic clutch stuff. Be sure and get them coated, in fact check with "Jet Hot." They were selling new stuff from all manufacturers cheaper than you can get them coated locally.

Re: 1972 Torino

Congrats to you and your stepson. The car looks sharp and it looks like the motor held up.

ya it stayed together oil looks great with real pretty metal flakes mixed in. so i think its time to pull it and before something bad happens. what kick ass rods are out there for it. the trw flats are good so re ring, bearings, cam, lifters,and oil pump good to go for another 18 years!!!!
