Now the question is what year Mustang II headers did you modify?  I ask because I am looking for a set for mine.  Being a former drag car the present headers are pretty beat up.  I know every fit is different as there are no motor plates used in mine, just modified motor mounts.  But I have to start somewhere and knowing what fits yours is a start.  Thanks.

Not sure what year they are, but I'm pretty sure all Mustang II's are the same. I don't think they changed at all from '74 to '78. Some pipes had to be moved a bit, and the angle of the collectors had to be changed a bit

What rear leaf springs did you use for your V8?  I need to replace mine on a 1980 and need to know what spring rate would be best for a V8.
