Here is the one I went with - main reason was for the higher compression 10.5 to 1. Summit also sells wraps but I did not use one..

If your compression is 10 to 1, it should be fine with a stock starter.

Before you spend more money than you should google dbelectrical mini starter and check out all the ford diesel trucks, 427's, 351's and etc guys are running them on. Im glad someone suggested one to me on another forum.


P.S. A starter heat shield might keep the heat out but it also keeps the heat in. So your starter is going to fail faster than normal since it won't be able to expel any of the heat it creates itself. Kind of like header wrap does.

Yea thats the one I got that ones for an auto trans there is another one for a manual trans not sure what you have.

Oh and the wiring kit is just a small gauge wire you run from the starter's solenoid to your fender solenoid as the power. Then you move the orig starter cable over to the positive side post of your current solenoid.

Yea I have hedman long tube headers and the header was practicaly touching the starter. This one is lighter and smaller and cured up my probs and the car fires up a lot faster now. Everyday driving it for 2-3 months now.
