Just got my 2013 FRPP catalog and see they have some block hugging headers in there, also fit the "P" heads. Made for the narrow early Ford chassis (30's-40's). Little expensive but ceramic coated. Wonder if anyone else makes block huggers like them? Some good 360 deg pictures of them. Not for the later applications but thoes of you with the early Rangers might have good idea on fitment.

They look neat but fitment could go either way IMO :dntknw:

I've always had serious doubts about the performance merits of a non tuned header... Seems to me like its just a decked out manifold if its not tuned-long tubes.

I like those!

They sure are proud of them though.... 569 bones? Ouch. They must believe that we think like girls... "but I saved you $60.95 honey".

I have my doubts of them fitting the 98+ frames, looks like they will hit the rear control arm mount....

They would solve a lot of hot rodder's issues.

My buddies Dad just built his to go on the outside of the frame. I might have a better pic somewhere else from before him painting it. Rick - the buddy I am talking about is the buddy I am trying to get to join BOF.
