WOW..2" header tubes?..are you building a 1500 c.i. diesel?

lol???hahaha......not trying to be a smart a**
I see its not as easy as I thought. But If any of you had a 1966 ford 427 SOHC in a 1932 ford 3 window coupe what would you use for Tubeing size? or is there headers already made that come close to those dimensions of the cammer?

Lol.yea i was just be a funny type a guy...

Now i understand wanting a 2" primary tube,do a search for headers for them,i remember seeing people make them especialy for the cammer,i think it depends on if you have the round or D ports as to what size, if memory serves me right they used a 2 1/4" for the round ports.

Reason is my father's best freind in Delaware has a Pop's Motorports FE427 converted to the SOHC in his..what his wife calls"The Midlife Crisis" 67 fastback

That's what your's looks like since it has the aluminum heads.

Whatever route you take,it'll cost some extra coin,if it was me,i'd try to find someone who makes or will build a set of block hugger type for it,probably be the cheapest route and look alot better than a pieced/welded together set exposed like it will be on that.
