Question type: Car Customization

I would like to put a little more muscle in my 79 Tbird. It has a 351w with a 2
barrel. Where can I find headers that will fit and what would be the best set up to
go with carb,and intake manafold I'm on a tight budget thanks Dennis

1 Answer

headers you can order at a parts store,to convert to a 4 barell you will need a set of 4 b heads,the 2 b heads will not work with a 4b intake.if on a budget,leave it as is,you looking to spend money.
