Does anyone know if the JBA headers for a 351W swap (pt # 1653) will fit in a '65 with a 289/302? I NEED to get headers now since my old ones are shot, but I'd rather get the 351W set in case I decide to go ahead with that swap down the road.
I suspect that the 1653's are designed the hug the 351 block, which since it's taller would push the collector INTO a small block, and thus not fit. Though, it might alleviate the gear box clearance issue.
Also, any info/stories on the motor mount swap (read: fiasco) would be appreciated.
