most really good headers you cannot run a full size radiator. ..Toda and RMF Street Sweeper being the few that are an exception to the rule

should have spent the money on that SMSP replica  ;) better yet, kick out the money for a real RMF

it out performs the RMF by 18 whp and its half the price

The Bisimoto headers have good ground clearance, but from what I have seen you cannot run a full sized radiator.

there are in developme nt for a header that will work with a full radiator. .no clue on when they will be finished. ....you also have to cut into the stock crossmemb er or swap in a set of traction bars

You also have to cut the t-bar in an EF to get it to fit according to h-t.

IMO just get a hytech knockoff from eBay. 

Flows good and as cheap as that crap header you first posted.

I've had toda, and a couple hytech headers, so you know I'm not a replica fan.  But for unforesee n circumsta nces that street cars see, I suggest the above.

clearance wise tho, probably not very good.

I will say that the toda header was one of the best I've ever had...

But I'd rather get a real one over a knockoff at those prices!
