I cant help but notice that these headers are about 90% cheaper than what it costs to get good ones from aus!

Will they fit my 1993 ltd though? Also will the be much of an improvement over the standard extractors that come out on ltds?

Generally U.S. shorty headers have problems with steering shaft clearance. I'd spend the money on proper long tube pacemakers if I were you. Much better performance and construction...those things will be chinese crap.

They may not fit a falcon but they look like they would be an almost certain fit for a 302W into a hihlux/4runner. Might foul on the starter motor but apart from that they'd fit like a glove.

price up shipping on the shorty headers, you'll probably reconsider.
