My credo
If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
I did one of those a few years ago for a friend. 78 Mustang 2.8 with heads planed .030", Comp cam, Offenhauser Dual Port with a 390 Holley, Duraspark ignition, T5 out of my daughters wrecked 89 Mustang, 3.00 geared 8" in a Currie custom housing. Got the headers and some brackets from Joe Rodriguez(I think) in Washington or Oregon. Same color as yours but not as nice paint.

I have built several of the 2.8 V6's that I installed in my Sunbeam Alpines and now am starting on a 4.0 V6 OHV. Should be a real power house:)

I developed a PDF for the Documentation of How To Convert an Alpine..... Here is a link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13vKZ9JhB0vO8p2PrMl1x1qfCxh17xJIg_KCIo7HeFok/edit?ts=5d6c7ded

I designed an built all of the individual components for the conversion, especially proud of View attachment 31004View attachment 31005View attachment 31006View attachment 31007View attachment 31008the straight back headers.

Thanks for looking,
This is a fairly old thread, sorry for bringing it back.
I guess I need to contact the OP to find out if he can reproduce the headers. I have an '85 TVR with a 2.8 in it and am looking for headers. These look like a good fit since the TVR and Alpine have similar chassis clearance behind the X member.
Thanks for any help.
