1971 ford f100 351w v8 headers

Hi all im new here. a year or so ago I bought a 1971 Ford F100 that originally came with a 360v8 but the prrvious owner put a 351w v8 in it. Its a 2 barrel carb and intake with stock exhaust/intake manifolds. But it does have true dual exhaust with dual glasspack mufflers and upgraded to hei ignition. I got a holley 650cfm 4-barrel and a edelbrock 4 barrel dual plane performer intake. I was wondering what headers will fit with this truck as the frame seems to get in,the way.... Its not 4x4 and its got a c4 automatic .... Any ideas on some cheap headers? Also what else would be good upgrades for it for 1/4 mile? Gt-40 heads? Which gt40 heads would fit? Roller rockers? What cam wpuld be,good with that,carb intake ? The other questions are optional im just,really interested anout headers that are cheap and will fit..... Also my transmission if I accelerate slowly it seems to slip at tge,same time everytime as it goes from 1st to 2nd, but if I accelerate hard or quicker it doesnt slip at all. Its a stock trans that I know of and has brand new fluid and a Hi all im new here. a year or so ago I bought a 1971 Ford F100 that originally came with a 360v8 but the prrvious owner put a 351w v8 in it.
