Sorry the pics are not the greatest but i had one hand on camera phone and other with flash light. The headers went in real nice. The only thing that rubs is one primary tube against the steering box but i think it wouldn't touch if it was bolted to factory 2v heads.

I tried to get the best pic where it touches a little against the steering box. Far-a little closer-then closer.
I dont think it effect anything but it will probably make a vibration noise so i will dent it there a little bit

looks good so far. Did you slide them in from the top or bottom?

I slid it in from the bottom. Saturday i'm gonna try the other side. I hope I don’t have to take the Pitman arm off like I would have with the Hookers. The old Hedmans slide right in so i'm hoping its strait forward with these. Shit after that i will have to take them back off so I can cut the collector flange off (2.5 " collector wont fly with me). Then I will have to weld on a 3" collector and figure out something for extension tubes. Ford didn't really put the transmission cross member in the best area for headers so I might have to use some oval pipe-i don’t know yet. once all that is done, I'll have to clean the headers and then coat them. I cant afford to ceramic coat them so I was thinking of using that new VHT header coating

I thought that the H8407 was for Automatic with floor shift. The H8411 is for Manual with floor shift. Your car looks like manual to me.

I have a c4. I know the bell housing looks a little different. It came out of a 70 something Lincoln with a 302. I don't know why the bell housing looks like that.
