Recently had the AOD installed and now I'm looking into headers. At the moment I have the K-code manifolds. What headers are yall using with your AOD? Any problems that I should be aware of during installation or anything over time? Do I have to stick with Shorty style or is there a mid to long header that will work with the AOD?

I highly recommend Fordpowertrain headers (FPA). They are very high quality and likely the last header you'll buy. Mine are longtubes on my (331/AOD with magnaflow X-pipe 2.5 exhaust) 67 fastback and they don't hang down any lower than my front framerails. To me they are the ideal combination of quality, price, clearance and hp benefit (longtubes for best hp).
Thanks for the input and I'll look into the ones you guys suggested. I had a buddy tell me today that he's used Flowtech in the past (ceramic coated long tube) and had good results. I think those were running under $230 from summit.
I had hooker long tubes when I had an aod in my 65. They fit with no problem except had to ding them in one place. But when I put a deep pan on it they didn’t work anymore. Could have cut the collector off and reworked it but I had a set of mid lengths laying around.
