    Posting for a buddy doing a rebuild on his stock F motor 40. Any experience on JT outfitters vs TPI headders? Other options?

    TIA

    The SOR 2 piece is a nice one. Some of the headers have flange thickness issues with the intake flange. Some have the intake milled down, some use "split" or half washers to make them even. Not a issue with the SOR, plus it has 6 into 2, with a "Y" pipe that is supposed to allow for frame flexing W/O disturbing the manifold gasket.

    I don't know about the JTO header. But I've been running a TPI header on my 2F since 1995 and have never had any trouble. No leaks, no rust, no fit problems just improved performance.
