Ride: Ford DF LTD

Location: Port Macquarie
NSW, Australia

The guy at the exhaust place said I'd be wasting money to get Hurricane headers as the stock headers on the DF LTD are just as good if not better. Anyone ever heard of this? First time for me but hey, impossible to know all.

You can't really get worse than the stock crushed tubes.

But i'd go Pacemakers.

Unless it has already had the factory junk removed & sent to china as scrap metal, any headers are a big upgrade on the stock crushed tube stuff the EB thru to EL v8's come factory fit with. Factory, a DF LTD wouldn't have anything other than the stock crushed tube headers, which look crap & flow even worse.

Only the EB/EL GT/Late EL XR8/FBT/ and maybe the late NL/DL car's had decent factory headers. They also had better heads, manifolds & so on.

Throw up a pic of your current headers, let's see what they are!

Cheers
