Tones' on the money here.
If those 4 into 1's have 1 3/4" primaries, they are too big for your engine. Say bye bye to torque with those headers. You'll need a big headed high rpm 302 or a stroker to make use of those headers.

The boys are right. I have a big headed high RPM 302 and they suit my motor perfectly, but when they were fitted i needed a completed retune as it was lean everywhere.
