    There are no collectors. There's a ball flange in the pipe with a two bolt bracket to tighten it against the manifold. My guess would be to look to one of the classic Mustang venders for the brackets to fit those manifolds. The exhaust shop should be able to make the pipe flange on their pipe bending machine. Try CJ pony parts, they list a pair of flanges and starter pipes from JBA that might work. MustangsUnlimited showed zilch.

    I would need a pic or part # of the "new hi-po manifolds" in order to help find the "collectors".

    Sounds to me like he needs the flanges for the pipe ends that slip over the studs on the manifolds.
    BTW, those hipo manifolds aren't that great. I saw a dyno test one time where they changed from those manifolds to long tube headers and gained over 70 hp...

    A machine shop could probably get some dimensions from your manifolds and make a pair of flanges pretty cheap.

    could also check with a couple of other muffler shops and see if they have them.
