Those look really good! I see people post all the time about prices...how high are they? Feel free to PM me if you don't want to share on the open forum.

If I continue to have fitment issues with my JBA's I may look at these.

They’re about $1k. At least that’s what I paid for mine.

Yep that's pricey!

By the time I've gone through 3 sets of headers, it would have been worth it though...

Why? Other than the black look? How's the chrome ceramic holding up J, and how long you had em?

Car is not running yet. Hoping for a first start this fall.

My headers are technically "Restoration dark grey ice", or dark grey if you will. There is a place near me that I've heard will ceramic coat both inside and out. Since they are mild steel I probably should have gone that route.

....and I'd just be sick to have to modify a brand new set of FPA headers for my setup, like the OP. Wonder what he did? Hey @Rowdy, what'd you end up going with, or have you decided yet?

Does FPA ceramic coat 'em inside and out, for that price, blueovalfan and nailbender?

A hyrdraulic clutch should be able to clear ANY header...true, you may have to make a hard line that hugs the body before transitioning to a flex line closer to the slave, but that is no big deal...even most flex lines can be clamped out of the way with cushion clamps.

The ceramic coating is just on the outside. A lot of places, including one near me, were doing the coating inside and out but it turns out getting the coating to stick on the inside longterm was very problematic so they stopped doing it. I found that out when I called them a few days ago.

Nailbender beat me to it. Just coated on the outside.
