    If I decide to use BBK shorty headers - these: https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...ions/year/1987, is there any issue with space between the engine and front axle/frame or they will fit?

    The ones that come closest are the equal length shorties, they come close to the steering shaft.

    I am running stock Mustang headers on the '91 and UNequal length BBK'S on the '87. They were installed years ago. I do not recall any issues with either install.

    The 91 is a mostly stock HO, the stock 1 1/2" headers are well matched for low RPM.

    The 87 is highly modified, I think you would lose low end torque with 1 5/8" pipes on a basically stock HO. So be realistic in what you are assembling.

    Keep in mind that a system that is well matched will perform better than a bunch of "trick" parts that are just thrown together.
