2.0 header
« on: June 20, 2012, 05:53:03 PM »
  :-\ I'm having a hell of a time finding a header for my 72 2.0. Anybody have one for sale or know where to find one semi affordable that doesn't require changing up the motor mount?

I'm still fortunate, My 72 2.0  has a Hooker Super comp header, It's the only straight bolt on I ever saw . But No longer in production, and has a tendency to crack the weld at flange on # 4 Cylinder. Had to replace the first 3 inches of that primary tube, and reinforce.

This is as close as you will get now, you'll need to mod the motor mount, most peeps use poly and cut it down,

Try Heddman Hedders, two piece header no mods needed. I have one but it's not for sale, sorry!
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
