headers for 5.0 swap

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I picked up a ford 5.0 out of an 86 mustang for my engine swap into my 77 280z. I came across an ad for headers and I want to know if they will fit the engine bay. They are bassani equal length shorty headers and they measure 6.675" at their widest point. I was reviewing my schematics but they do not show the width of the 280z engine bay at the strut towers, only at the frame and the strut towers center to center. Anyone know if these things will git?

Has anyone tried tri-y headers? They take up much less room as they sweep back.  I have a pair on a 62 Jaguar MK2 with a 331 in it and they slip right in.  I believe my MK2 is far more space restrictive than the z.  I will try them when I get the engine in.  Worst case I would have to modify the steering linkage a bit.  This is not usually that hard to do. Perhaps they would drop down too low? We will see.
