Headers

Does anyone know where to get good cheap costing headers for a 2.8L? i know edelbrock makes headers for a 2.8 ranger, but edelbrock is pretty expensive, and most mustang owners junked thier 2.8 for 302's. Can anyone send a link or some info?

The 2.8L if I remember correctly, came from the European v6. There used to be plenty of performance parts for them, Search Under Mercury Capri.

No company made headers to fit the 2.8L or 3.3L Fox Mustangs. I owned both cars with SROD & RAD transmissions...neither was impressive.

You are very mistaken. The 3.3L or 200 cu in I6 with 1bbl carb was widely used in Mustang, Fairmont, Zephur, Capri from '79 to '81 for sure. It came with 3spd automatic or 4spd manual RAD or 3spd w OD RUG/SROD...Ford threw both manual trannys in these cars and adjusted the rear axle gear accordingly.

The 2.8L V6 2bbl was cancelled midyear in '79 & it was generally equipped with a RUG/SROD or C3 automatic.

There are many folks on this forum who own a 3.3L Mustang (lol).

I think it was available until the 3.8 V6 debuted. That I am not sure about.
