Description
More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the performance of your 5.0L Coyote Engine with a set of BBK Long Tube Headers. These BBK Ceramic Coated Headers will greatly improve your mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive stock manifolds and increase your Pony's horsepower and torque. Significant increases in rear wheel horsepower have been seen when installed with a matching BBK Shorty X pipe or Midpipe Adapter.

Silver Ceramic Coating. These Long Tube Headers are completed in BBK's Polished Silver Ceramic Coating that not only looks great, but reduce under hood temperatures to help increase horsepower and extend the life of the headers. Ceramic Coated headers will long out last both chrome plated and polished headers.

Quality Construction. BBK Long Tube Exhaust headers are manufactured from 1-3/4" CNC mandrel bent tubing for unrestricted airflow. And feature one piece laser cut 3/8" header flanges for added strength, leak-free performance and OEM fit. These headers are then completed in a polished ceramic finish for good looks and to lower under hood temperatures.

Recommended Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that these Long Tube Headers have to offer, AmericanMuscle recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

Additional Required S550 Upgrades. Installation of these BBK Long Tube Headers on a 2015-2017 S550 Mustang will require the use of a set of BBK Long Tube Header Adapter Mid-Pipes part# 1816 or 18160 and an O2 Extension Harnesses and Hardware Kit part# 16332. Please see options listed above.

Application. These BBK 1-3/4" Ceramic Coated Long Tube Headers are specifically designed to fit the 2011-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the Coyote 4 valve 5.0L V8 engine.

Review & Install Video

Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I'm going to be taking a closer look at BBK's long tube headers, available in either ceramic or chrome for all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. Simply put, long tube headers are designed to completely replace your restrictive factory manifolds, which can really choke out the flow of exhaust. Long tube headers paired with an aftermarket Mid Pipe and exhaust will make for a very free-flowing setup that should give you a nice bump in both power and sound. As far as price is concerned, you'll find these long tubes from BBK to be right in the middle of the road. Now as far as construction is concerned, you'll see some slight similarities with the BBK and the Pype's long tube headers. They both share Mandrel-bent long straight runners, which is going to be great for top-end power, however the BBK features a 1-and-3/4 inch Mandrel-bent tubing, whereas the Pype's offer a 1-and-5/8ths inch Mandrel bent tubing, so you are getting larger diameter tubing with the BBK and the option to go with the ceramic coating as well. That ceramic coating is going to offer a couple of different benefits, first of which is performance. Ceramic dissipates heat a lot better than a raw stainless or chrome-plated header, so it's going to have a slight edge performance-wise, and should help keep under-the-hood temps down as well. Now the chrome option will be less expensive, and it won't dissipate heat quite as well as a ceramic coating, but one thing's for sure, that chrome finish is really going to pop under the hood. In addition to the different finish options available with the BBK headers, you'll also enjoy a perfect fit, thanks to the laser-cut flanges and quality welds that will help prevent any premature failure down the road. Installing any set of long tube headers can be a little intense, so if you don't think you have the mechanical skills to get the job done, then I would leave this one up to the professionals. However, if you are going to tackle the job, just leave yourself a full day, just to be safe. Keep in mind, whenever you run a set of long tubes like these BBKs, you will need to address your Mid Pipe. In this case, you'll need to run a flanged and shorty Mid Pipe to get everything bolted up properly. Now BBK recommends their shorty X-Pipe just for best fit and performance gains. So if you're looking for a quality set of long tubes with a number of different benefits and the option of a chrome or ceramic finish, you might want to check out these long tubes from BBK for your coyote Mustang.

Ask a Question

Will these headers work with a Borla shorty x-pipe? I have the borla s-type catback that comes with the shorty x-pipe. It appears that the collector on the headers will slip inside the open flange on the borla shorty x pipe.

Dan12gt

  • They are only meant to work with the BBK intermediate pipes, and it's a direct bolt-up using those. With that being said, there's a possibility that it will work with the shorty X-pipe from Borla, but you should be prepared, if needed, for some cutting/welding in order to get it to fit. An exhaust shop could make it work with stainless exhaust pipe, I'm sure. The easiest way to go would be to sell the Borla Shorty X-pipe on a Mustang forum or to someone in a local Mustang club, and pick up the bolt-on BBK intermediate exhaust.

BBK catted vs. BBK off road X pipe + BBK long headers? power/noise why to go off road vs. catted?

Cross00

  • I have the ceramic coated BBk longtubes and off road X and absolutely love it! They do put out quite a bit more sound but the power gains are awesome! I get nothing but compliments. I would reccomend cutting out the factory resonators if you do this. That's what I did.

Use with header wrap? Would the use of header wrap still be recommended with these headers given the ceramic coating?

KRod

  • You don't really need the header wrap with the ceramic coating, it's coated to help keep the heat down and they look good. I've had them on my 2012 5.0 for almost a year and haven't had any discoloring or heat issues.

    They absolutely work! Power and Reduction of Under Hood Heat

    Ok here's the deal! I installed these BBK Ceramic headers along with the BBK Cat-less mid pipe, which by the way connects to the factory system at a 2 1/4" pipe reduction, which I had an exhaust shop change it to a 3" X pipe. First make sure you have a muffler that is not crazy loud. I had a roush axle back and with the headers it sounded like 10 Harley Davidsons revving. I quickly changed to the 5" Magnaflow Street Mufflers to quiet it down. There is a definitive gain in power from low rpm but very noticeable at the higher rpm range as the car still wants to keep pulling. The car seems snappier and more responsive at throttle. Under hood temp is noticeably lower as my garage is not as hot when I pull in and park the car. They are noisy as you will hear the exhaust pulses through the headers, like a ticking noise, at first I thought the headers were leaking exhaust but not the case. The car sounds mean and you will get everyone that will want to race you, but with my 90mm BBK throttle body, Steeda CAI, GT350 Intake Manifold, Lund Racing Tune, BBK Ceramic Headers, Cat less 3" Exhaust Set up, Good Luck! I keep my car NA and use it as a daily driver here in Florida.

    BBK Long Tubes Ceramic Coated

    These headers fit beautifully and are evenly coated! Dropped K-member on my 2013 5.0 and in less than 5 hours installed these, bbk or-xpipe and Pypes cat back on jack stands!! Sound is a deafening roar full throttle (I live in the country and my sister in law heard me 1 mile through the woods!) At cruise speed its not bad at all. I wish I could say getting the stock exhaust off was easy, believe it or not the new exhaust went together faster than the old ones coming off.

    excellent product

    wasn't quite prepared for the power increase.you can really feel better torque and seat of pants feel right at the bottom end and all the way through the power band. also used the bbk off road x-pipe at the time of installation.plan on at least a full day for install and a lift would be advised, but well worth the time and effort for the power increase !

    BBK Headers perform great

    I bought the BBK long tube headers and BBK catted shorty X-pipe to make the car louder and provide it with more power and they did just that. I noticed a big increase in the way it sounds from idle-WOT and an increase in power. They will take about a day to take off the old exhaust manifolds and install the long tube headers but the are well worth it. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it.

    Mandatory Mod

    The 9 hours it took me to install these headers and off road x pipe were well worth it. They sound great and the power gains were felt instantly! I highly recommend these headers to anyone looking to Mod their new 5.0. The power gains will put butterflies in your stomach during full acceleration, especially when combined with a JLT CAI, BMR lowering springs and a set of 4:10's. Now all I need to do is beef up my rear suspension so I can hook up during full acceleration. Thanks agan AM.

    BBK's Ceramic Long Tube headers have been the best purchase so far. I felt the power change instantly. My mustang sounds MEAN!! I will suggest getting a shop to install them. I tackled this job along with a friend of mine, neither one of us hand experience or the knowledge of installing headers. The instructions came in handy but still took me two days to get them installed. However, i will say that the blood and sweat was worth it all!!

    Excellent Headers

    I Purchased these headers with the BBK Off Road X Pipe, I had a shop install them, cost $650.00 Pretty good Price I Believe. I do suggest go also purchase Item #64075 (02 Sensors). After a Tune the check engine light was still on. I could be wrong but in my case the stock 02 sensors couldn't handle the difference of the headers. ( But if your there might as well change them anyway) After adding the new 02 sensors Light went out and no issues. Also added Item #384126 KandN Series 69 Typhoon Air Intake (11-14 GT). She Screams Now, and Has Long Legs, Amazing Power Difference. If your a power nut like me I would get the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner and the free tunes for life. What a difference in the power, gas mileage roughly 14MPG after all complete and tuned.

    WHOA

    the sound, the power, the response is amazing. BUT i had a mechanic do this job also with my help every step the way so i can learn and such. this job was hard! very "tedious" job. again well worth every second. this took us 12 hours but 2 hours were because of very stupid stuff so IF IF IF IF IF everything goes smooth it will take 8-10 hours at a regular pace. again, a job like this ANYTHING can go wrong or cause a delay. oh ya, these thing SCREAM at WOT but at idle or regular driving it is pretty quiet.

    Very good fit, awesome appearance and noticable gains... what more can I say? It took me 8 and half hours to install myself and I'm very happy with the results. I went with offroad Xpipe but left stock mufflers and I have to say I just love this throaty sound this setup makes :)
