They will fit where the stock manifolds were. They are a bolt on including the EGR valve pipe for California emmisions. I found out after delivery that they are still not street legal on California street legal vehicles with smog devices. I have not yet put them on my Bronco since I have been chasing other problems and had to put it off.

Just picked mine up at the post office this afternoon !~

Can't wait to get them on ! More importantly I want to replace that 19 year old 02 sensor.

Just got the Summits back from the ceramacoaters

Whadda ya think !?





Hey Fireguy

Check out the way the ultraseal gaskets already fit the header so you don't have to trim for plug access.

Dying to stick em' on, maybe start tomorrow. I need an 02 plug off screw for the other side, gotta try NAPA tomorrow.

It looks awsome. Who did the coating? What did it cost?

Thanks Pepe

You really started something here ! I grabbed some short stock Ford studs and brass nuts so I can try to keep all my stock intake and airbox braces held up. Just gotta find an 02 plug off screw tomorrow.

BigNorm

A local Canajian outfit called RLD industries did it for me. A couple of guys there used to play Thursday night volleyball at my place years ago(when us old men thought we could still jump).

They normally charge $200 CDN ($140 American), but they gave me a substantial reduction because they were so short.

I think I may have one... but probably not worth the trouble to send.
So... you gonna finish what this write-up started when your done, so I can see what I need to do to finish the job?

Hopefully I'll find a plug today and get cracking.

I'll try to add a couple of things if I find any. This is already the best header thread by far, that's why we're all here diggin' on it.

Take a bow Pepe !

I swear by Taylor Spiro Pros. They are an 8MM wire. Kind of spendy but worth it IMO.

Any header gasket will work, but for how long is the question. I've had great luck with the ultraseal head gaskets. Go here to get the Mr.Gasket part number I'm using;

I agree with BigNorm on the Taylors, he and WD-40 talked me into them and I've never been happier. I'll let you know how they fit around the new headers.

the summit shorty headers have the hole or whatever it is that the EGR line goes to?

The ones for 302s

have a welded on threaded sleeve to accept an 02 sensor on each side. I had to block off the driver's side with an expensive little bolt available at NAPA because 86s have only one 02 sensor on the passenger's side.

The 351 headers have the requisite EGR pipe on the passenger's side too because that's where their stock pipe picks up the gases to take them to the EGR, like you suspected.

Check these beauties out;



look at all that plug wire clearance and plug access is actually improved over a stock EFI 86 302 !

Check progress pics here;

http://www.superford.org/registry/ve...=18404#content

Nailed all the progress you see there in 3 hours tonight, from pulling in the truck to both headers on. Took a break to go catch a flick because it's cheap night at the movies and this Scotsman can't pass up a deal.

I'll finish her up tomorrow. Big thanks Pepe for all the encouragement, tips and pics. You shaved hours off the job for me

Mucho Appreciation !

The pleasure was all mine Six!
Hell... I'm gonna cause yours look so much sweeter!
Oh well... next time I won't do it in such a pinch and do it right, like you are!
