    Best shorty headers for 302?

    Looking for recommendations on shorty headers for a ford 302. The ones on my donor engine are BBK chrome from about 10 years ago and have rusted with very few miles. Donít want to repeat that mistake again with the roadster. Any suggestions? Stainless? Ceramic coated? Brand?

    Ceramic coated work well IMO.

    Stay away from Ford Racing shorties---since the left header goes on the right and vice-versa the passenger side motor mount interferes with one of the tubes. BBKs don't have this problem.

    I think Tony told me BBK shorty. BUT, I'm running FITECH, do they come with the bung for the Oxy sensor?

    The bungs will be in the J pipes.

    x3 use the BBK or buy the Ceramic ones. Some parts are worth the price to do now.
