Headers in 1975 Bronco

I am swapping over the EFI from a 5.0 to a stock 75 Bronco 302. Does anyone have info as far as what shorty headers fit in an old bronco? Also, how do Chrome or stainless headers last. I would prefer to get something that will resist or eliminate rust. Up to $250.

I am using the M.A.C. Performance shorty headers that I sent to Jet Hot and had a ceramic coating applied... The headers were 200 bucks, and the coating about 125.. Mine are 3 yrs old and no problems so far. The headers stay inside the frame rails, and then you can route the tubes & muffler anywhere you want...

I'm anti-header. I sold mine and went back to manifolds.

That being said, the best ones you can get are from WH or BC.

Heddmans are cheap, and fit good, but don't seal worth a darn.

You're not going to get good headers for $250, sorry pal.

That is a nice idea, if it werent for the fact that 99.99979997899% of the stock 302 manifolds out there werent cracked. The last set i unbolted were broke in half.

i see that on alot of ford motors....

anyway i got a set of nice headers from dynomax for $100 something 2 years ago for my 351m/400 and before anyone says any shit about these headers you can lick my ballsack because these are still solid, sealed perfect and sound awsome, id never go back to stock manifolds
