    I have the Thorley headers from my 406 that had straight spark plugs. I just got a 383 that has angled spark plugs, will the headers fit or will I need to figure something else out? Anybody got some they don't want and would seel for cheap (I am poor now)!

    should work fine but angled plugs usually are a pita to change

    huh? I find the angle plugs on my dad's circle track car to be a dream to change compared to straight plugs. Straight plugs always have that one plug exiting right INTO a header primary, the angles just don't have that. He runs straight plug headers with just mild dimpling for the angle plugs(actually dimpled for the straights just also help on the angles).
