Those headers you have won’t even come close getting into an X series, been there and tried haha.

If you can find the articles relating to Dick Johnson’s Pine Pac mustangs in the 80s they are a good read on how he managed to get 380hp from the asthmatic 302w back then.

Nothing off the shelf due to the spark plug angle, however I have Hurricane 4 into 1 headers and I had them fitted to GT40p heads, you would need 90 degree spark plug boots from memory to help them from hitting the pipes.

Not sure mate, I know the AU headers will squeeze into E series as that’s what I did selling them off to a mate with an EB, he also put the gt40p heads on too.

This is why i got the motor thinking i wont need headers what is the reason they wont fit ? Too wide ?6779925031b2b89130807b2dbf45394e.jpg8c7545b8f0c955555a6370d2c11da561.jpg

Probably to do with the driver's side, ie: getting around the steering box, drag link and starter motor. They're a shit even with tri-Ys designed for Clevos into X-series, let alone tuned length (for which some are an engine-out job)

No because the MSD wants to see one pulse per cylinder firing, so the wheel would need 4 teeth (8 pulses over 2 revolutions), whereas that one has what looks like 36 or something, maybe one missing or a double one to tell the computer where #1 TDC is. Either way, if you wanted the MSD to be triggered by that, and it has a number of teeth in multiples of 4, you could possibly cut off teeth so that you have 4 remaining, although you are then stuck with that base timing. Better off going off the dizzy.
