GT - 40 heads were on the cobra mustangs...check e-bay!!! they had 1.84/1.54 valves vs the stock e7te's 1.78/1.46 valves and on the cobra they came with 1.7 roller rockers vs 1.6 stamped steel rockers on stock's came on 93-95 mustang cobras.......they are a dirrect bolt up no mods necessary.. you can use your factory headers but why!!!!! upgrade and as far as power gains??? better then stock

1.)yes, the gt-40 irons will work on your car. 2.)why would want to keep the factory header? think of air flow like a sinus problem andyour all congested. you need some medicine to clear those sinus passages. 3.) for as roller rockers get a set of 1.6 or 1.7 my opinon. alittle more liftout that factory camshaft. i can't give you an exact number but you'll definitly will be happy with the gains.
