Default Headers?

99 5.0 v8 from explorer into my 99 ranger
Bought it like this
Wondering if anyone knows of a good way to get headers
Since torque monster and obx aren't made anymore
Is it even worth it to look or get some if I find them?

Default Re: Headers?

I found a set of motorsports headers from a guy that upgraded his explorer to torque monsters.

One look at the stock manifolds off lets you know it is well worth it.
I actually found mine on facebook. Just search daily for explorer motorsport headers and torque monsters on google, craigslist and e-bay eventually they do turn up.

Love the amazon green you have pics of your truck anywhere I have missed?

Na I haven't taken any pics
It's all stock except wheels and v8
Been debating on getting the 01-03 front
Or upgrading the front
Searching for ideas

Also I will keep on the search. They don't pop up that often
I haven't heard of Motorsport headers tho
Those work on the v8 swap?

100% yes on the fit. They have of course been discontinued but will work on the P heads as well as the GT40. If yours was out of a 99 it surly had P heads.

LOL absolutely not, they have already been in the ranger and back out for motor mount modifications but they fit like a glove. I halted my swap due to winter and other projects but will resume here in a month or so. Thanks for the interest though!

I have seen torque monsters 3 times now, twice on e-bay and once on CL mounted to a mountaineer that had a failed front differential. The FMS headers I only saw once and bought them. The torque monsters I hear are better than the FMS but anything has to be an improvement over the stock manifolds.

Stock 97 mountaineer:

Crazy there isn't any headers out
Most likely won't get any but I'll still check every so often

Custom headers will cost you about 2,000. Since mine were easy yours may be more

Default Re: Headers?

Going prices for used is $500~$700 IF you can find them.

The Jegs would not work on your 99 without extreme modifications.

My custom exhaust was quoted about the same as dwayne's headers. I would have to have true duals lol. Will be facing that before I can drive it.

You should sign up at a half dozen or so explorer forums!
