Need new Exhaust Manifolds for my 1978 400
« on: June 02, 2021, 02:29:32 PM »
I have to replace my exhaust manifolds and wondering what the best choice is. I remember in the past seeing convos about headers vs manifold. Just looking for advice.  Engine is stock. I was looking at Ram Air RM-4 round port Ram Air factory headers. Will this fit and work for my car?  I noticed it didn't list any hardware for attaching it though. Also curious is the ceramic coating necessary?

Thank you for the reply, those were the ones I was looking at. Did you have to buy any hardware for installation or does it come with everything needed? Also did you get them ceramic coated?
I was very happy with these:

It's been so long ago, I honestly don't  recall.
If not, the hardware store and some grade 8's will do  fine.

I painted cast grey..no ceramic coating.
