    Say hello to my little friend...1987 Ford Bronco

    Hi everyone. Still fixing up this 1987 Ford Bronco. I do have a question though. I bought some GT40P Heads. I am wondering if I can replace my old heads and just put these on the current 302 engine? Do I need to use new intake manifold? I do understand I need matching headers to bolt onto these...

    1987 Bronco needs help!!

It is a 302 EFI engine which we now found out was probably overheated as a piece of the block cracked...
