I looking for someone who might have knowledge if a 232 258 split header used on early 70s CJ I-6 would bolt on to my 1986 CJ7 I-6 258. I am getting conflicting answers from multiple sources.
 
The head is still a 258. Best to put a new intake like Clifford, Offy etc. that's where it's going to be different. Not the headers.

Now 4.0 headers are different as are the intakes. :D
 
73 cj I've also have gotten conflicting info on the use of a header on a 258 some say it isn't worth the extra money if you have a 96 head that I'm building because the stock exhaust is of a header type. I'm confused as to anty up the money or just buy a stock exhaust. I will be putting a Clifford intake on my newer head, maybe that is were the conflict is because in able to use the extra flow of the intake and head u need to get rid of the exhaust as well in the right proportions. Would an after market exhaust have any benifit over the stock style. Also I'm building the head with chevy valves and having it machined. All and all the head will be about $800. I know some think this is a waste of money on a inline six cause some perfer bigger displacement engines. Just what I want to build for my cj. What r your thoughts on this? Anyone. Sorry for the long post.
