    It's not easy being green.. Very nice attention to detail. You plan on painting those headers?

    it is going in a mustang, i know im going to have to modify the oil pan some so it will fit , i did find green plug wires but they just didnt seem worth 100$+ for em to me .i did think about wrapping the headers tho.

    Don't wrap your headers. I made that mistake. It makes them rust out so fast you can't keep up buying headers. I think it makes them so thin it actually makes your engine bay warmer.

    I think you definition of "modify the oil pan some" is different than my definition. I want to see the pic's of that project. It certainly is NOT going in a Fox Body Mustang.

    I couldn't tell you. I never tried on stainless headers. Most of these exhaust pieces advertised as stainless just have a very thin stainless coating. I doubt it makes much difference though. I think you are better off sending them out for ceramic coating. I had a header tube collapse it was so rusted out. It happened the day before I had to drive the car on a 270 mile trip. I had to pull the header and drop it off at at welding shop to have a new tube put in. The welder had it a whole day, and I had to put the header in at 6 pm at night and the make the 270 mile trip.

    I also agree that you are too far in the hole modifying that pan. I think you are better off buying a new pan. You also have to run a pickup tube to the back of the engine. There is no room for a forward pickup tube in a Mustang.

    bought the pan for 50$ with the forward tube, i tig weld and fab and i do custom paint n body so its no big deal for me to modify it at all, that was my plan when i bought the pan .

    ill post pics up when i do it, same with my internal baffled fuel cell that im gona build out of stainless .

    plus i dont see spending 250-400 on a oil pan worth it lol
