Description
More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the performance of your 3.7L Ti-VCT 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.

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 S197 Upgrades. Installation of these BBK Long Tube Headers on a 2011-2014 S197 V6 Mustang will require the use of a BBK Shorty Mid-Pipe, part# 1461 or 1462 for proper installation.

Additional Required S550 Upgrades. Installation of these BBK Long Tube Headers on a 2015-2016 S550 V6 Mustang will require the use of a BBK Shorty Mid-Pipe, part# 1465 or 14650, and a Front O2 Wire Harness Extension, part #1119, for proper installation.

Application. These BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers are specifically designed to fit the 2011-2016 Mustangs equipped with the 3.7L V6 engine.

Technical Notes. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only.

  • Yes, I did both and it works fine. A acceptable rumble at idle. Louder if you get after it. Not noticeable on the highway. Silverfox60

Will it fit? Planning to buy these long tube and also Xpipe. . But I do have installed 2011-2012 Mustang V6 3.7L MagnaFlow Cat-back Exhaust (Street) Do i need to cut some tube off? Also I dont need to do anytunes? Thanks

Zorg Year: 2012 Model: V6

  • Yes you need a tune thers so much air going through the exhaust it will throw off the computer. I also have the magna flow quad tip exhaust and everything fit mine just right this will make your exhaust deeper and up your horsepower big time.

    Great

    These header are amazing. It sounds like hell braking loose when you get on it. It gave the car a lot more power. These headers were very easy to install. The one bad thing about it was that it came with the wrong O2 sensor extentions for two O2 sensors. So all you have to do is extend them. I suggest you do them on a lift

    Hard work, but Good Results

    Take my advice - find someone to help you. It will significantly cut the amount of time you spend installing these headers. I recommend the following: 0) Throw away the gaskets that come with this product, and buy new OEM metal multi-layer gaskets. The gaskets from BBK *will* blow out. I was lucky enough to be able to reuse my original gaskets, but I had ordered a new set - just in case. 1) Before you start the install, buy some spare exhaust studs and nuts from Ford. Changes are very good that one or more studs will back all the way out when you remove the OEM manifolds, or you'll drop a nut and won't be able to find it. I bought six studs and six nuts - just in case - and needed one stud and two nuts. 2) Use Liquid wrench or wd-40 on all of your nuts/bolts. This will lessen the chance that you'll accidentally back a stud out. 3) Make sure you have a reasonably long 22mm wrench for the O2 sensors. You need leverage to get those suckers off the OEM pipes. 4) BUY RESONATORS, especially if you're running (or plan to run) aftermarket axle-backs. If you stay with stock mufflers, it doesn't sound too bad, but stock mufflers will hold you back a little on power. 5) The offroad x-pipe is NOTABLY louder than the catted version (just a heads up because I know you have to get one or the other with your headers). I would also not get the offroad x-pipe unless you have a tuner and can turn the O2's off, or if your city/county/state is especially attentive about emissions equipment.

    Easiest Header i have EVER installed

    the hardest part of the installation was the OE studs backing out when taking the stock manifolds out. Jack stands and on my back the install (which included a cadded shorty) took about (including a beer break) 4 hrs. The install was so easy, my friends were jelouse. The performace gain is very impressive, the roar during daily driving is awsome, on long trips it can be testy but, that is what the volume knob on the radio is for, right?

    Great performance gains

    I bought these ceramic headers with a matching catted x-pipe, and I couldnt be more satsified! I re-wrote my bama custom tune with this set-up and it pulls much more, and has much more torque. One thing to make sure when finishing up with the x-pipe connection, is to push up the piping to keep it all tucked up as far as it can go. I did not do this right after the install, and the x-pipe sagged quite a bit. This took about 2 day to install becasue there were alot of screws to take on and off on the manifolds which was the time consuing part. Instructions were vauge, but is a very straight-forward install. I do recomend this product, becasue it looks great, and provides exellent performance gains (even more with a tune). I also reccomend doing this on a lift, with just jack stands it is more difficult.

    with proper prep, its easy!

    After the install, but before rehooking the mid's, start the 3.7, you will fall in love with your car all over again... It took me and my bro, a full day to do. I would suggest spraying all the old nuts and bolts the day before with wd-40 or something close, I had to cut my old H-pipe to get the stock manifold out because the 2 nuts on the connection would not come loose (I twisted a 3/8s extension in half, trying to get them loose). Also, Getting to the O2 clips was a pain, you need some small hands to fit, but once the old stuff was out of the way the new went in and lined up like its supposed to... I had some flowmaster chambered mufflers on the car but threw them away after starting the car, went and got some straight-through mufflers (cat-back system, to get rid of that oval drivers side mid-pipe) now it sounds 100%better than stock. I am very happy with the performance and sound!!

    BBK has horrible quality control

    Ordered a set of these headers and when I received them, the ends were dented (where they connect to the H pipe). This was not AM's fault, as they just shipped what BBK sent them. Returned the set and AM sent a new set. These were dented even worse. I was concerned about leaks, so I wanted to send them back a 2nd time. Unfortunately, I had to pay the shop to fix this set because the 3rd set couldnt get to me until after my scheduled install time. Then when doing the install, the wires were not the correct ones. So I had to pay the shop to extend my current sensors. (I love dropping about $1200, then having to pay more to fix the product) Even if the plugs were correct, he said he had to add about 18" of wire to each side. I am not happy with BBK in this regard. Luckily, the throttle body and x-pipe had no issues. If you buy these, make sure you ask them to check to make sure the product isnt damaged.

    More higher end power for sure!

    Great product when it came to fitment and finish and look under the hood. I got this combined with bbk catless shorty x-pipes, Magnaflow street comp quad tips axle-back, BBK 73mm TB and Steeda CAI. These are the mods that should have an impact on the car's sound. The video in the link will say it all. And you can definitely feel the power in 2nd and 3rd gear, even though I have a 4:10 axle ratio stock ones will still feel! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3zaxFe0NnY

    GREAT but...

    this review is done about 2 months after my install. it took me a total of 12 hours to install the ceramic LT headers and a catted x pipe, i had 2 friends help me out during the install. my main problem was that my headers didnt come with the correct front O2 sensors but i extended them with some 20 AWG wire and they work perfectly now! the sound is awesome with my Borla ATAK axle backs and i really can notice a big improvement on power now that i have tightened down the clamps all the way. this is by far the most significant product i have bought for my mustang!

    WOW!

    Wow says it all, these sound so great and instal was a breeze, I also put on bbk shorty carted xpipe and magnaflow streets and when it's cold it's kinda tinny for about 2-3 minutes but as Soon as it all warms up it sounds so great I can't even describe with words how good it sounds, and like I said in other reviews it's loud when you want it which is priceless, and great all the time
