Hi, Ive had some Aerostar "headers" for a while now that I got for a good deal. Has anyone succesfully fitted these on their 2.8 in a Ranger? If so what did you have to do to make them fit?

I believe they are a direct bolt on.
If you get around to installing them, let us know how it went!
I'm hoping to pick up a pair in the future.

They are a factory tube header. I've read there isn't much performance gain as they are pretty choked up.
