Headers for a 1965 Mustang

I am buying all new headers because it is about time. What would you suggest for a 65 'stang with a W302 V8? This is my everyday car, however, I am never opposed to having more power.

I have had Hooker super comps and Hooker comps on my 65s with a 289 in both and the went right on and didn't hit anything, not on either of mine anyway. all i had to do was take the motor mount bolts out of the driver side and loosen up the passenger side and lifted the engine up enough to get them in on the driver side. sit it back down tightened up the mounts and finished the exhaust.
