I Need Help, Looking For Headers

I am trying to find headers for my truck.
It's an 80 F-150 2wd with a 302 that someone swapped from a Capri.
Would headers for a truck that came from the factory with a 302 work?
Or do I need a different set? If so, where could I get them?

Any help is appreciated

Headers from a factory 302 should be no problem or you could get a aftermarket set summit racing has a great selection

Take a look at these http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

The intakes and cams are different, other than that there 100% identical motor depending on years as some are a roller motor(85-93) and some are flat tappet motors(pre 85). All 302 headers will fit the engine but not neccessarily the vehicle.

I just installed a set of Flow tech headers on my 95 F-150.went pretty smooth.I only went headers because the dealership manifold on the right side was way more than a set of headers.
