In my boat i have a ford 390 FE and i have been wondering if the Exhaust manifold is the same as the ford 427. i want to buy a new exhaust system for my boat but i cant find anything for the ford 390, but the 427 has alot of accesories.. PLUS the bolt pattern for the exhaust looks the same..

so are they the same?

thanks for any help

Mine was stiff when working it back and forth on the trailer.
Once I got it on the water and under power, it was amazing!
