What's in the Box

Info

For years it seemed like installing a 289-302-351W Ford in your street rod was a far bigger challenge than using a small-block Chevy. One significant problem was finding compact shorty headers. Well, problem solved! These tight-fit headers are designed to hug tight against your small block Ford V8 and can make seemingly impossible installations much easier to tackle. 

For factory style oval port heads. Will work with GT40P heads. Includes 2.5" collector reducers to 2.25" pipe, gaskets and bolts.

  • Must be used with 910-67210 (auto trans) or 910-9504 (3/8" throw manual trans) style mini starter or equivalent compact starter
  • We recommend motor mounts 270-2221 (Left) and 270-2220 (Right)
  • Left mount may need to be ground 1/4” to provide clearance for collector
  • Fits engines with forward sump oil pans

Excellent fit!

April 16, 2016
Bought the plain hugger headers for my 351W that I installed into my 1930 Ford 4 door sedan. Using a standard starter for now and the speedway side mounts and the headers fit like a glove. Although with the standard starter there is some clearance to run the exhaust around the mini starter would give a few more inches of clearance in other applications.
Pros:
  • Very Nice Welds
  • Perfect Fit
  • Fits Standard Starter
  • Works With Side Mounts
  • Tubing Has No Tooling Mar
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nice simple header with good fit on 53 f100

October 23, 2015
This product was just as described in speedway magazine. The headers fit my 1953 f100 with a 302 really good and they work well with the engine swap kit I got from speedway motors.These headers made it possible to reuse my stock steering box but will probably have to have a mini starter to bolt the passenger side on,but that's no big deal. I give it 5 stars!
Pros:
  • Nice price

Cons:
  • Needs Some Grinding

Nice Header but check your application.

August 13, 2014
These are a really nice quality header. They fit GT40P heads great. Be aware that these headers will not fit cars that have steering linkages behind the front cross member such as Mustang and Falcon. I bought these for my 67 Mustang coupe and the collectors interfere with the steering linkages.
Pros:
  • really nice quality
Cons:
  • do not fit popular ford muscle cars
Yes, I recommend this product.

The best coating to hold up over time is ceramic coating. We offer these headers with ceramic coating already applied which is part number 9300201H.

These SBF block hugger headers have certain areas of which to measure to verify fit. The drivers side clearance to the factory steering gear is 4.5” out from the head where it drops down to the collector. The collector is wrapped inward and is 11” from the top of the ports on the head to the bottom of the collector. The collector is below the 3rd cylinder from the front. On the passenger side we have one starter that will work and the rest we have tried will not fit. Part number 91067210 for automatic or 9109504 for manual will fit with these headers.

The small block Ford tight fit headers number 9300201 have the collector below the third cylinder back on both sides. There is a left and a right and at the furthest point are out from the head 4.5” and from the top of the flange to the bottom of the collector is 11”. The tubes wrap inward towards the block once making the bend. Steering clearance may be the only problem on your application.

These headers fit a wide variety of hot rod applications but a chart is not available for all makes and models. They MUST be used with our mini starter number 91067210 or one with similar dimensions. From the 'Header Specification Chart' located in the Info section and some basic measuring fit on your application can be verified.

Part # 9300201 These work on most Small Block Fords including the 351W with factory style oval port heads. With several engine mount locations possible with engine transplants we do not list every vehicle the headers will work with. Several notations are listed and include: * Must be used with 910-67210 mini starter or equivalent compact starter * We recommend motor mounts 270-2221 (Left) and 270-2220 (Right) * Left mount may need to be ground 1/4” to provide clearance for collector * Chrome headers are polished before and after plating for show quality appearance * Fits engines with forward sump oil pans From head surface outward to the furthest point is 4.5” and from top of the header flange to bottom of collector is 11”. With these dimensions and some basic measuring you can determine fit on your application.

These headers are specific to the small block 289, 302, and 351 Windsor heads and will NOT fit on the Cleveland heads. Currently Speedway does not offer a tight fit header for the 351Cleveland engines.

Answers

These headers fit most small block Ford applications in round, oval, or square port. The primary tube diameter accommodates most standard dimensions. For the larger aftermarket and race heads you may need to utilize headers with larger primary tube size. For fit on your application an easy verification is to put the oval port gasket against your head to see if the opening does not interfere with exhaust flow from your particular head. If a gasket is not available the port configuration is as follows: The ports in these flanges are a tall "oval" shape. They measure app. 1-1/4" wide, 1-15/16" tall, and they are 5/16" thick.
