A friend of mine is searching for a set of 180 degree headers. Please let me know if you have a set that is available.

Just regular Ford 4V heads for 351C
Ron, Beautiful work, as always.
Beautiful! I love the sound of 180s at 6000 rpms and you get a torque bump in the mid-range. But all that pipe surface area radiating heat just emphasises recommendations for Jet-Hot coating such pipes in any Pantera. There's enough heat coming off them to warm a nice northern 1-bedroom apartment! On the car I used to co-drive, initially without a decklid heat shield, 1 yr old enamel paint BOILED in an 8" OD spot on the decklid during a single autocross session. On a longer run, the steel decklid may warp! Even with Jet-Hot I'd run a heat shield- ss if you aren't concerned with wt and aluminum if you are. I also suggest studding the exhaust fasteners in the heads with brass nuts. Much of the engine cannot be easily serviced with the pipes installed so make them easy to R & R. Little enough mods for the appearance and sound IMHO.
BTW I have a set of Ron's 180s. Top notch work.
