I'm sure you're on it, but beyond the marketing aspects of a "common name," I think there's value in nostalgic part numbers. These are going to be exclusively in the hands of FE folks anyway, so something like C*JB-6090-* would mean a lot, especially as your designs evolve.

That said, I lean toward something like J482. There's your J, and if current trends hold, I bet a LOT of your potential customers are in the 4.25" club or wouldn't mind the association.

FE Technical Forum / Re: H pipe and electric cut-outs

If you want to take full potential of open headers, which is the sole reason for cut-outs, then before the H pipe. Besides, putting them after the H pipe would put you underneath the main area of the floorpans, and that's the lowest point of the car, so they would be sticking down quite a bit.

Good point about the floorpans.  I hadn't thought about that.  Thanks!
i still think JB40 heads is a good enough name let their performance speak for its wouldn't matter if you called them DUDS if there good enough heads a catchy name wont mean squat.

Thanks for all the ideas.  Even FElony's  :o  I like Doug's idea for FEnix heads, with a bird logo.  I'm going to have to work on that one.  My friend the drunk monkey wanted me to call them FElix heads, as in Felix the Cat and his bag of tricks.

What a lot of you guys are saying is true though, to paraphrase Carroll Shelby and his thoughts on naming the GT-350, "If its a good car, the name won't matter.  And if its not a good car, the name won't matter".

You could plug them with lead shot. I have seen them closed by Holley engineers that way.

Just gotta watch about the finish.   I've seen Cometics leak with a broach-mill surface.  Most shops do not employ that kind of milling machine anymore.   If your shop uses an insert mill, I'm sure it will be fine.  I use Cometics and Felpro MLS head gaskets on a lot of engines and don't have issues.  I'd rather have the .048" quench distance than the .060" and I would aim for that if possible.

I used Cometic on my first go with AL heads on an iron block.  Had the shop finish specifically for the Cometic items.  Leaked like hell.  Switched to Felpro Performance - no issues.

Leny, the brackets always had to be purchased separately. I have one that I don't need, if you want it. Only problem is I need to find  If you're not in a huge hurry, give me this weekend and I'll see if I can find it.

Same - IIRC on the other Mustang it was welded to the frame on the driver's side rail.  On the 70 I ripped all the PS junk off the car.  No no issues with the Hookers.
