Sounds good aaron, i'm sure my october will be open so I might just make a trip up there.

Ryan: Found them on Ebay for $185.50 a piece from a machine shop in Clearwater, FL named Odessa Cylinder Head. Now, alot of people say don't trust ebay and my father had gotten screwed over 5 years ago, but, I called them up personally instead of purchasing through ebay and got my order within a week in a half. Great buy!

I didn't have enough money to buy new ford racing P headers yet, so I modified my stock shorties by denting the tubes a little bit with an air gun tool, so that the spark plugs do not touch them and burn up. I had to modify one spark plug, the #7, with a 90 degree spark plug boot because it was going to touch the header and there was no way to dent it. #4 and #3 is where you need to dent the headers because the spark plug boots will touch. But, with a little bit of effort you have heads that compete with edelbrocks and what not for a fraction of the price. I had thought about going the gt40 head way instead of the gt40p, but that is not worth it at all, it's practically pointless because the HP gain is less than half of the gt40P gain.
