Default 1967 Fastback 347 stroker headers question??

Got shorty headers from the 82 fox I'm using as a donor. Will these fit in my 67 fastback? I would like to hear from someone who has a 67 with a 347 stroker or anyone who can tell me what I should get for headers.

Thanks in advance!!

The fact that it's a stroker is not a factor when choosing headers. It's still a 302 block with 302 heads. I don't know if the headers will fit, but it depends also if you have an automatic or manual tranny too.

i've never heard of fox headers fitting into a stock early mustang.

your header selection depends on the cylinder head bolt pattern, your power goals/useage and the amount of effort you want to put into it.

Fox headers will not fit your car. They hit the shock towers on classic mustangs.

Being a stroker does mean you need a bit more flow from your exhaust. I'd recommend JBA shorties or some good (FPA, Doug's, etc) full-length headers. You're going to spend some money on them, but they'll actually fit and won't warp flanges.

They wont work, sorry.

Clean them up nice and sell them, then put that money to a nice set of new or used headers that will work for you.

We run Hooker Super Comp long tubes in my wifes 68' and it has a 302 (306) from a 92' in it. The headers work great and sound awesome. Her heads are ported so that helps the sound a bit.

Thanks guys, I ordered JBA shortys, 1650s. I hope they bolt right up. I should have this heart transplant done this Sunday, If I do, I'll try to post some pics or a vid...

JBA makes some nice headers they should fit just fine and not leak.

Default Mac Headers

Just for the thread, I installed a set of Mac long tubes on my 65 and they fit great! I have completely changed my opinion about headers now that these have been on my 347 for a year now!
