V6 headers

Post by RodH » Fri Dec 15, 2017 8:29 pm

I had to look twice at these headers.

I assume they are for a 2.8 with modified exhaust ports.
I wonder how much difference they would make to the performance.

From a 3L Capri (Essex) - won’t fit a Scimitar.

Spacing on the ports is familiar - but not Essex either.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

I didn’t even notice the port spacing :oops:

Definitely Capri shaped downpipes - I vaguely recall an aftermarket 3 port cologne head?

The 1974 Capri he removed them from must have been a bit special then :D
