    Looking for headers that will fit a 77 Cobra II with a 351W. Will these fit?

    We've been told by some that the Sanderson FF6 has fit some third generation Mustang applications. However, we have not been able to verify this claim, or whether these vehicles used the 289/302 or 351w engine groups.

    The Sanderson FF6 does fit the GT40-P cylinder heads, and should work well in the Maverick. Be sure to specify those cylinder heads when ordering.

Limited 5 Year General Warranty

Sanderson Street Rod Headers strives to supply our customers with the highest quality parts and service available in the street rod industry. In keeping with this, we warrant and will repair or replace, at our option after inspection in our facility, any of our products which are found by us to have failed due to defects in either material or workmanship.  This warranty is activated by the return of the Warranty Card enclosed with every pair of headers, and is effective for FIVE YEARS * from the date of purchase as indicated on the original invoice.

This Warranty does not cover products that fail due to improper motor tuning, alteration, disassembly, or damage caused by racing, misuse, neglect, abuse, improper installation and/or accident, or when used on applications for which they were not designed or approved. We are specifically not responsible for the costs of removal, installation, transportation, destruction of other components, inconvenience, loss of time, or other personal damages, or for any other associated costs including the application of aftermarket coatings applied by others. Sanderson Street Rod headers shall not be liable for any and all consequential damages occasioned by the breach of any written or implied warranty pertaining to this sale in excess of the purchase price of the product(s) as found on the original invoice.

WRAPPING HEADERS WITH THERMAL TAPE VOIDS WARRANTY.

 

* Extremely compact header designs which locate the collector in close proximity to the exhaust ports are very sensitive to engine tuning. Improper air/fuel mix or timing of ignition and/or valvetrain can cause early failure due to excessive heat. For this reason, part numbers CC2 and CC3 are offered with a two-year Warranty period only. All other Warranty conditions apply.

GENERAL NOTES:

  1. The Patented Leak-Free Design that Sanderson Headers offer you is the only leak-free flange design on the market ... Do Not Attempt To Use Flange Gaskets! The raised flange on the Sanderson Headers will buckle the gasket during tightening and actually cause a leak!
  2. Sanderson Headers are NOT emissions legal on pollution-controlled motor vehicles. It is the purchaser's responsibility to verify local regulations for compliance.
  3. Wrapping your Sanderson Headers with ANY thermal tape voids your header warranty. The best thermal protection for your headers is our Aluminized Ceramic Coating that is available for every Sanderson Header.

Sanderson offers their small block Ford headers in primarilly two flange styles---the standard rectangular flange, and the square port flange. Most aftermarket cylinder head manufacturers, and virtually every aluminum cylinder head for small block Ford applications now use the square port shape on their products. The importance here is to ensure the header flange properly seals to the cylinder head. In most cases, the standard rectangular shape works perfectly, but on other heads, the square port flange is necessary. It is the customer's responsibility to decide the correct flange for their application.

NOTE: Sanderson charges extra for headers built with the square port flange due to the additional manufacturing time necessary to build headers using the square port flange.

Below are two images showing the differences in the flange styles. Please use these images and the provided dimensions to ensure the proper flange is selected for your new Sanderson Headers from the dropdown menu on the product details.
