Seem a bit overpriced.  I've used them on Jeeps and they are awesome, not sure if they will clear in an Eagle.

Probably cheaper to get a renix header and have it customized at a muffler shop. At least that's what I'm planning on.

That $$$ with shipping just about covers the 4.0 head swap and a 4.0 ceramic header.

Have nothing useful now. however the modifacation is essentially just drilling the 4 holes in a flat peice of metal. and mounting the bottom bolt on the motor tight to the block and spacing the other 3 accordingly

i was under the impression that the clifford headers were shortys?  if so, why wouldn't they fit?  would be good to know considering its the last thing i need to bring my eagle project to a close.

Ya that's not it. That one puts all six into one. This one is a dual exhaust.

This is odd.  The headers they have posted on their website are shortys.  Looks like I'm going to have to give them a call and sort this out.

Thanks 68!

ps.  Here is the web link I was looking at.

I'm thinking about doing this for at least my wagon and wondering if there is a noticeable gain in mpg?
what I have is an almost complete rebuild with less than 4000 miles on it and trying to tweak the carb to get it running smooth again...
