I have an 85 dodge w150 that we dropped a 440 in back in the 90's. i'm trying to find a set of headers that will fit this application, but the only thing that i could come across were the bouchillon performance engineering set, and when i called them, they said that hooker or hedman, whoever makes their headers for them, changed their tooling, and they no longer get the same fitment.
so does anyone know of any headers that will fit my truck? i was thinking that headers for a '78 440 would fit, but i'm not sure... cause a set of headers for a 360 in a '78 and a 360 in an 85 were different part numbers... but i'm going to call a body shop tomorrow and see if the frames are the same.
I just really don't want to have to smash a set of headers to get them to fit. to my understanding, the whole point of headers is they decrease resistance to flow. So all four tubes must have the same losses with different length pipes, so when they all meet up, the air from each tube has the same pressure and velocity. so when you smash the tubes to fit, that all goes out the window.
sorry for the rambling
anyway...any help would be greatly appreciated.
