Sanderson just started making headers for the 58-66 TBirds a few months ago, and I installed a set in my 64. They are a tight fit. I needed to unbolt the motor, jack it and rock it side to side to fit them. Got a local shop to meet them with 2.5" pipes.

What is your overall opinion of the Sandersons?

Workmanship is very good and the flanges are thick. They install with no gasket, just a bit o' RTV copper silicone. Because of that you better have very clean heads (in other words, freshly rebuilt).

My mechanic took the initiative one day when I wasn't around and installed them with regular manifold gaskets. It was his opinion that they were needed, in spite of the factory recommendation. Guess what? They leaked. So I reinstalled per Sanderson's instructions and now they don't leak.

Time will tell if the black finish lasts though.

The FPA headers (made for a 429/460) that I bought a couple winters ago came with gaskets.

Not sure if that is relevant to the discussion here, but just thought I'd mention it.
