Looks very clean. I reckon those manifold are going to hold you back a fair bit though. Maybe later when funds permit you can put some headers on. I only have a little 302, and my hipo manifolds are really holding that back

Yep your absolutely right , but at least it will get it started , have still got a set of FPA headers that can be modified down the track when finances allow ,

Have to be full custom though as the car Is RHD with and XF steering box, tight fit. Custom pipes are about $2k

Nice work mate. Just out of interest, how much does the casting bloke charge for something like that.

About time we have an updated. Looks nice, like the x-pipe, I think I need to do that.

As you can see #uckall room in there , major challenge to fabricate a set of headers if l could get it done for 2K I would be surprised ,

That does look good, you have the underside squared away!

I put reproduction CJ exhaust manifolds on my 390 (aluminum edlebrock heads). I didn't want to fight fitting headers, the CJ manifolds are about twice the size of the stock 390 manifolds and I had zero fitting issues.

Custom made to fit headers would be optimal, but the price really goes up for a few more HP.

Hey Ralph might be an idea to wrap that header to keep the heat out of the box mate. Or fit an oil cooler of PS maybe both.
