351c 1969 headers
« on: September 12, 2020, 08:48:10 AM »
Hi all,

I looked over the previous forums but donít seem to be able to get a final position on the best headers to get for a 351c 2v auto with power steering.  There also seems to be a few supporting keeping the current and cleaning out the current manifolds.  Any direction would be great.


Second question is the exhaust system to go with the headers.  Custom stainless for $2000 or a off the shelf for $1500 with x over... improve the sound and hp.

Thanks again in advance for the advice.
Cheers Glen

Hey Glen -
I'm thinking that the 67-69 Engine bay was pretty much identical.. if that is the case...
I've got a 351C in my 67, running Patriot headers (ceramic coated) bought them online from the states.
Perfect fit with no mods.
My 67 is T bar Auto with PS. (Ram style)

I actualy purchased Manual headers (as they were out of stock for the Auto ones) and these still fitted perfectly....keep away from Hooker.. they don't fit.

Hope that helps

Just wanted to check if these were the ones you got or a different variant...Patriot Exhaust Long Tube Headers Ceramic Coated 1-3/4" 2BBL 351C 1971-1973.

Again mine is a 1969 with a 351c 2v LHD, power steering and automatic.

This was front the CJ Pony Parts website.

Thanks

Glen

Hey Glen -
Probably not those ones.

These ones would be correct though.

I looked on JEGS website and I can see the ceramic ones.

The actual headers I got are these ones.
Through JEGS. (Via ebay US)

LHS and RHS - and yes, I can still remove the plugs no issues.. it's tight but not hard.
Let me know if there is a specific pic you're after.. and I'll try to get one.

Daz,

I'm assuming these will be spot on...

Opps - I think this is 4V...

One more question.  Black painted finish verse ceramic coating.  The difference is about double the price $1,000 verse $500... worth the extra $?

Ceramic coated headers will last longer and not heat up your engine bay.

So I'll go with these from Summit.  Now need to organize the right exhaust system.
