    The 85 year mustang headers are unique. They have the heat riser valve and the shields to provide heated air to the carburator's air cleaner. 86-93 Mustang headers should all be the same.

    It may be off a 351W or a 460.

    The genuine Holley rebuild kits are a little pricier for that 4180 series carb compared to for a 4160.

    Nice that the heads have screw in studs and guide plates.
