Hey, ya'll, I in need your help. I just bought an '95 GT back in Nov.
It has a re-built 5.0 engine. I'm concerned that my re-build is a pre-95 engine.

I've thinking about replacing the headers and I don't want to order the wrong ones.

I've removed the stock one and it measures slightly over 15 1/2 in. for the outside egde of the end bolt holes. I remember reading somewhere in the forum that '95 headers where around 17 ins. Is this correct? Does it matter the year of the engine? Is there a way that I can determine it's year?

I apologize for the novice questions but this stuff is new to me.

Thanks. :confused:

I don't think there is much of a difference between pre 93 and 94/95 headers, other than the EGR tube acutally being present on the 94/95 headers.

I don't think the pre 93 had the EGR tube.

I just shipped out both sets of headers. One 94 and one 91. The 94 headers are actually a little larger tubing with much smother bends. While the 91's look hacked up with multiple steps in a tube length and more crushed/dimpled areas for clearance. Along with the EGR tube fitting on the 94's only. The flange mounting and the collectors are the same.

I'm putting a 91 motor into the 94 using FRPP headers for a 94.
The heads are exactly the same.
The older motor is actually a better engine to begin with when comparing stock.
