So there is plenty of information regarding the lack of options for headers to swap a GT40P headed 5.0 into late model (98+) rangers. However, does anyone know about header fitment with aftermarket heads like afr-185's or twisted wedge heads?

It would appear that these heads have similar spark plug angles as the P heads and would necessitate torque monster units but I was wondering if anyone has any first hand experience.

Look at obx headers. They are supposed to be the knock off Torque Monster at about half the cost. I had TM's on my 05 and enjoyed the shit out of it.

It's not the "P" heads but the different suspension and steering that make header selection limited. OBX are hard to find now also.
