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 chrome plated long tube headers will greatly improve your mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive factory 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.

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 bright chrome finish for good looks and a long life.

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 Chrome 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.

do i have to tune up if i install BBK long tube headers and Shorty x pipe ? i dont want to void my factory warranty on my car do i have to tune up if i install BBK long tube headers and BBK Shorty catted x pipe ? i dont want to void my factory warranty

2011Stang Year: 2011 Model: V6

  • A tune should not be required if running a catted x-pipe but a tune would be recommended as you risk leaning out your A/F with an untuned longtube installation. Additionally, know that your factory warranty will not cover these new parts nor anything that fails due to them. Talk to your local dealership and ask the service manager how it will affect your warranty. Some don’t care, others do.

Can i install these headers without the X-pipe? I bought these headers and the shop told me that they will not work unless they are paired with the x-pipe.

al3xdman Year: 2011 Model: V6

  • The shop is correct! You will need to get the matching BBK shorty X-pipe.

Will X-pipes without the converter put the check engine light on? The shop thats installing them is saying to get the ones with the converter to be safe.

al3xdman Year: 2011 Model: V6

  • Yes they will unless you get a tune. The tuners are able to fix it so that you don't get a check engine light.

    BBK Long Tubes & O/R X-pipe

    Very nice looking headers! Fit and finish was excellent! It took me and two of my friends a little less than 3 hours from start to finish to install these using jack stands in my garage. I was really surprised as I was worried that thses were going to make my car too loud. I already had an O/R X-pipe and with the headers the car is actually not as loud and has a deeper tone and a more 'tuned' sound to it. I'm very happy with these!! I picked up between 6-10 RWHP over my previous O/R X-pipe on the dyno on a hotter more humid day.

    Very loud

    Great product, I got this with the catted x-pipe and the borla ATAK and it is very loud, maybe a little too loud. I might have to get the borla touring or type s, but this car does turn heads now. Its pretty quite when your just driving normal, but at WOT it is freaking loud. There is a little drone but its starting to go away the more i drive it.

    Outstanding

    I drive a 2012 Mustang V6. I bought a whole new complete exhaust system which began with the BBK Long Tube Headers, shorty "Catted" X-pipe, and Roush Axleback mufflers. It took about 12 hours to install with the tools that were required along with a floor jack and two jack stands. My father and I did it together. The hardest part was uninstalling the stock manifold, stock downpipe/h-pipe, and stock mufflers. Installing the new Headers, X-Pipe, and Roush mufflers was quite simple....if any man is worth his own salt. I am a novice under the hood of a car but I managed to install the pieces accurately and without problems. BBK also designed O2 sensor extensions so soldering was not necessary. The sound was absolutely throaty, loud, and overall AMAZING. I also have a C&L Cold Air Intake installed from a previous purchase. The last thing I have yet to do is get a Bama tune but otherwise, the engine is powerful, very loud, and just plain awesome. You can tell when a car has more to its exhaust besides just aftermarket mufflers. After about 400 miles the slight raspiness went away and the sound got slightly deeper and less drone occurred. Buy this set up!!! LOUD!! TURNS HEADS!! POSITIVE ATTENTION!!

    BBK Longtubes

    First im going to start off by saying I started the install of my full exhaust from headers to the catted X-pipe, to flow masters at 9:00AM and finished at 2:30PM so 5-6 hours max for everything, it was only myself and my buddy helping me with hand tools. I still need to order a tune for it but the sound and performance overall is great, I would highly recommended this part.

    construction

    Just received my headers today, havent installed yet but heres what ive seen out of the box. Chrome isnt coated on all spots a few welds haves small chips of chrome missing. Notice tool marks on the headers from bending equipment Id think they would sand this out... welds arent of the greatest quality but seem sealed and secure. Lastly one of the flanges on the header was jammed on an angle probably due to poor packaging and I had to use alot of force to allow it to move free. I dont mind visual issues because nobody will see the small issues. Just think packaging could have been better they basically put one in the bottom then a piece of cardboard then another header but the carboard inbetween isnt the full length of the box. Not in any way American Muscles fault but poor packaging by BBK did get the o2 extensions though. Big plus rather than soldering wires. Cant wait to install.

    great sound

    i got theses long tubes plus the off road shorty x-pipe, great horsepower gain did take some torque but expected with long tubes. i had 3:31 before installed then added 3:73 to improve torque back to where i was recommend if you add this with any gears less then 3:73. overall great. quiet nice rumble as idle and when i want to be heard they hear. didn't take but maybe 3 hours including other mods new extensions are out for oxygen sensors.
