    3 Stars   Pain to Install
    By on 10/28/2015
    I picked up a set of regular BBK equal length at a swap meet for my 83 T-bird still a Fox Body but better looking then the mustang, Fords answer to the Yugo when several Ford dealers were selling them. Anyway back to the headers apparently BBK didn't quite do there homework on there headers for the fox body, no matter what body style Ford used. First you got to loosen the motor mount nuts, jack the engine up just to slid them in. The passenger side had no problems or interference, but the drivers side..... cyl. #7 & cyl. #5 tubes hit the steering shaft. The answer, heat them up and bash them in. Almost making them look like the factory stock headers which are squeezed at the bolt flanges and crushed at the collector. (Thanks Ford for reducing power) Now after you almost collapsing shut #7 tube and a little on #5 just to clear the steering shaft. Now its time to bolt them on, good luck. You need that special small bolts that fits a 3/8" wrench. Stock bolts don't bother, they won't fit thru the tubes or flanges let alone trying to get a socket on it. I got it with a 1/4" drive 3/8" socket,1/4" drive 3/8" universal socket, 3/8" combination open end box wrench 12 pt & 6 pt. a bottle of high temp anti-seize for the bolts, oxy acetylene outfit to heat the tubs, hammer, lift, floor jack and blocks of 2x4 to lift the motor, 1/2" drive 21mm socket to remove the motor mount nuts, and last but not least 6+ hours of pain and anguish. End result they perform a lot better then those cheezy stock Ford headers you find in Mark VII, GT's, & LX's, you will gain HP, how much depends on your set-up. I got:
    83 flat tappet stock 5.0 EFI
    2 bbl throttle body (CFI) EEC lll system
    Edelbrock Performer 302 EGR intake w/2 bbl adapter
    MSD distributer, 6AL ign. box, blaster II coil
    Cloys double roller timing chain
    BBK equal length headers
    AOD trans. w/B&M shift improver kit installed
    Duel exhaust system without crossovers
    High flow cats
    Cherry Bomb Vortex mufflers
    Traction lock 8.8 rear w/Ford Racing 3.55 gears
    & Historic registration plates
    It runs.
    Good Luck with your install
