    They are made by Pertronix. Pattern after Doug's tech said. My 74 hits passenger torsion bar. Driver hits bottom of gear box. The kick out sump oil pan? ARRRGHHHHH!! !

    I see this story never ends, I posted several times last year. I went with TFS heads and Dougs and man they don't even look like the same header after I beat them up.They hit everthing! Still not sure if the TFS exhaust port is higher or not. I used those thick motor mounts from a Dart Convertible also. Had to raise the motor, Just buy the cheap Ebay stuff it won't hurt so bad when you take a hammer to them, you know going in what to expect.

      They're made in Mexico, I offered to send the first piece back so they could hang it up in the break room, he declined.

      I'll try TTI next time, un coated, get them coated after reworking to fit.

        Funny thing the place I had my dougs recoated after tube reconfigurations said to me he advises everyone who enters his shop to buy them bare, fit them up make your adjustments than get them coated as this applies to all brands of cars .

            I understand but that’s like a few of my engine components said to fit x engine you need to make alterations for it to fit . It sucks when you shell out your hard earn and things don’t fit as they should. Hey that’s hot rodding !

              Seen some stainless headers on e bay. Less than 200. Maybe I should have beat those. All in, the Patriots look and are built nice. Good deal for the $ imho. That darn oil pan though.......

              This car is especially rectally annoying. Hope the OP got it. We've been at it for days
