Yup! That's the exact kit I used. It's really quite nice. It's a big job. Just a heads up.Barrera wrote: ↑September 5th, 2020, 3:32 pm
I am leaning more to getting headers for my Chinook. Is this the header kit you picked up from Summit Racing?
In the description it reads that this is for "use with the E40D transmission only". I'm not really sure if that's the transmission in my 1995 Concourse so I'm still researching that part.
Also, did you find any particular string of colorful language more effective for this job? I want to be prepared when the time comes.
Ford didn't use gaskets, but the Thorley kit does. One thing regarding the idea of resurfacing the stock cast manifolds is that if they're really warped, and then ground into flatness, the alignment of the through holes is not going to be perpendicular. Headers all the way.
Your rig should have an E4OD gearbox so you're fine there.
I called Thorley before ordering and they were super helpful. But this was several years ago. Who knows now ...
I find that the nature of my profanity relies mostly upon the weather. I prefer working in cooler conditions. But mostly it's dependent upon personal preference.
