So have established that there is no way to get a standard cast manifold to fit the 390 because of the XF steering box taking up the space needed , after much rootin around and interwebing ive stumbled across a kit by Castlemaine Headers that is meant for the FE , at $380 for the kit it sounds good to me , anyone have a better option ??
Yeah , slowly slowly , have been trying to work out the most cost effective way to get an exhaust on it , as soon as you say RHD with a 390 the exhaust boys rub their hands together and think come in spinner , the biggest hurdle is the GT heads as they have a 14 bolt stud pattern and nobody has a template to make the Header plates , so after much deliberating ive ordered a set of FPA headers 14 bolt specific , so will only need to modify the one side
hopefully keeping the cost to a minimum, in the mean time ill get the car buttoned up enough to get it on the tilt tray and send it off for a full system , really need to catch up with Shaunp to get a plan of attack so when it comes back we can kick it in the guts , in the mean time I'm just pissin around with little things , still livin the dream though !!
