ebay hotside single kits for 351?

I see alot of hotside kits for 302's but are there any available for 351's. I'm wondering if something like the treadstone kit or something similar would fit a 351 if you simply add a little length to the crossover pipe. Anyone have experience with this?


88lx coupe supercharged 351w.....sold but not forgotten.

B&G and ponydown have hotsides for the 351W aswell as a few others. yes you could modify the treadstones to work on a 351W. I bolted my tradstone/vecco/B&Gs stolen header up to a 351W just to see what it was like. the 351W is wider and taller so you would have to make them wider and taller or the crossover would hit the balancer. HOWEVER I did NOT do it with the motor in a car so there my be other issues, like on my car with a 302 the downpipe is a very tight fit, not sure how it would do with a 351W.

it would be much easier/cheaper to buy a set. the ponydown singles for a 351W are cheaper then what I paid for the treadstone/vecco/B&G RIP OFFS.

Oh and not sure if this applies to you but had I KNOWN that vecco/treadstone headers were stolen copies of [email protected] I would NOT have bought them. maybe that will help you in your choice

I honestly have no idea of who stole what design and all that, I just happen to cruise ebay from time to time checking out the sceen and treadstone seems to have the advertising in tact to catch my eye with thier (or whoever's) product. Thanks for the tip about B&G, if they are the originator of the design, perhaps they could accomodate a 351 setup as stated.

B&G makes a 351 kit, I talked to them about it.
You just have to make sure you use hatchback
motor mounts for it to fit.

yeah me either until I bought them lol lol Then everyone on turbomustangs.com and a few here flamed the crap out of me for having them lol..

here is a link to B&Gs s headers for 351W.. Just be prepared to wait to get the headers as he is usually a month or so behind.
