Had the same problem on my 90 302. Pass side didnt match up. :duh I think part of it is due to the way the colletors are made. They're a ball and socket type that dont allow for much variance. After banging, cursing and welding, i sent the things back and got a set of hedman shorties. Been satisfied with those so far, fit right the first try!

Not that i expected them to be different from 85-87, but why didnt you just order the ones for the 85 engine?
I think he did it just doesn't line up where the exhaust meets header...:shrug

I actually haven't had any problems with mine. I bought them for an 88' 302 and they fit just fine. The header bolts worked out a couple of times, but thats just headers for you. I have them on my F-150 now, but thats complete custom exhaust.

Just my 2 cents.

Their full length headers aren't any better. Ports did not match on the driver side and the passenger side was sitting on the frame. Got rid of them.
