    BE WARNED!!Kooks Custom Headers Do NOT fit my SBC Mustang!!!

    :x I recently paid over $800 for a set of #5507 Kooks Custom Headers for my 87 Fox Body w/ SBC. The headers will NOT fit my car!!!! I told the salesperson I had a motorplate & a QA1 k-member. He said that I would have more clearance then I would ever need. When I realized they would not fit. I immediately called customer service. I was asked to send photos of my car with the headers in place. I sent pictures every day for a week from every angle you could imagine. I was then told they would make it right. I guess for them making it right means not answering your calls and avoiding you hoping you will go away. Unfortunately for them I work for my money and I will not just go away. Don't make the same mistake I did. Either buy them from Lemons and pay the extra money or buy a set of Hooker Super Comp Headers for a 62-67 Chevy II. I believe the part number is 2243. The moral of the story is you better be sure you are ordering what you want from Kook's because they will not take them back!!!!! And don't expect any customer service because all they know how to do is try to pass the blame on to someone else!!!!

    By the way the issue with them not fitting was the collector laying on my trans pan & shifter linkage. They are bent at the wrong angle!!!

    I had this problem with a set of Huslers in a chevelle. I had to move my shifter use a very short cable.

    This is actually angled toward the pan itself. You couldn't even so much as put a turn down on it. You also can't pull it out of gear because it makes contact where the cable is connected to the ear on the trans. One of the tech guys at Kooks tried to say it wouldn't fit because of the motor plate. I couldn't seem to make them understand (even with pictures) that even if the engine & trans were out of the car they still wouldn't work.

    Stay on them, these companies need to treat the customer properly. Stay kool do not stoop to their level, Be persistent and honest and keep telling them about the problem and what they need to do to make the deal right. I hope it all works. This lack of customer focus is a wide spread problem. My buddy has a mustang that is getting a sbc soon, I will let him know
    Bad service travels fast
    Do not let go
