F-150 headers with D0VE heads

Post  95lightiningguy on November 24th 2014, 12:49 am

Ok, since the engine didnt sell I went ahead and installed it into the truck, the problem is when I went to install the headers they hit the cross member before they lineup with the exhaust. My question is, is there a specific header for this as I bought a set for 83 F-350 because I was under the impression that they used the D3VE heads at that time, and they have the same exhaust flange as a D0VE, am I mistaken in this? The headers bolted right up to the motor on the stand, everything lined up perfectly, they just dont fit in the truck. Its a 95 F-150 and will be street driven with all accessories and a/c.

The Ford towers and mounts from an F350, believe it was a 94 I pulled them off of at the local pic-n-pull.

What tranny cross member are you using? The one from the mid 90's is straight (at least the one that was on my inline 6/5spd manual) and the earlier ones have a drop in them. I can get you a picture tonight.

I will be modifying the straight trans cross member that came out of the truck.

Do you have any pictures of the headers, mounts we could look at and maybe get you an answer?

I put Hooker Super comp inside the frame headers on a 90 F250 with a 460 with Doves and they worked fine, but I was using the C6 cross member that had the drop in it.

I also have a 460 in a 95 F150 but am using Maddog out side the frame headers. You can check out that build thread here.

I am pretty sure I have the wrong ones, have a guy local who has an 82 F-250 with a set of hedman headers and they dont look anything like what I have, so, they are the wrong headers. Thanks for your help and responses guys.
