    Hey all, building a big block F body drag car with coil over suspension. Looking for suggestions on header choice, what works, what fits. I'd like to go with 2 1/8th inch. Thanks

    I like your user name. Nice to meet you.
    We have a few roaming the halls here (and a few want-a-be’s, as well).

    I’d like to see some pictures of your car, if possible (like the coil overs, and so forth).

    For some reason, I read and saw "LoveBigBlocks", which is why I said what I said.
    I've sense cleaned my glasses and after re-reading - my hand met forehand (not that what I said was wrong, but I should have re-worded my statement), as well now I have a sore shoulder (someone punching me).

    Facebook . . . one of those places I generally don’t frequent often.

    Mirada Mike, your just the guy I'm lookin' for. I just ordered my 440 crank for my 400 and am going to need an exhaust. I'm not sure these are what I'm looking for, but we should talk. I'm also in WNY, down near Fredonia and looking for advise on my build. Hoping for a pile on of advise from all and maybe a sneak peek at your Mirada. Of course I'll bring the cold ones

    I'm new... so it is against the rules to reply to a post 2½ years old? What if it is only 2 years old...?

    Against the rules, probably not but if your going to respond to the old post I would not expect the previous posters too respond to your post.

    Not to sound to flippant, Well-Known Member, but it appears that you did.
    Keep in mind, if someone did a keyword search for, lets say "Hooker Big Block" and "any time frame" or "any forum" they would find this.
    If you happen to elect to be notified of any new replies to a particular post, you would be notified up to the time the post is either removed, archived or you choose to not follow it any longer.

    Thanks for your input.
