 Does anybody know of a set of headers that will work on the new Revell '57 Ford kit?? I'm building a gasser and I need a set of headers, stock manifolds just won't cut it.

 

 Thanks

The Ford Y-block has exhaust port spacing very similar to the smallblock Chevy, and Pontiac and Olds first gen OHV V8 engines...BUT Y-block headers often go up-and-back, because of the locations of the spark plugs in the heads. Like this...and a similar set is in the AMT '56 Ford.

But you also see them like this, so little Chevy headers can be made to work.
