    BBK Headers

    January 04, 2011

    Great product, felt additional horsepower and looks great also. Took 2 hours each side. Passenger rear header bolt was difficult to install and tighten took about 1 hour. Driver side H-Pipe to header alignment took 1 hour also. Without those two issues I could have finished in about 2 hours.

    BBK equal length headers

    March 22, 2010

    Great product, built well and looks good. Comes with all nessecary parts, but these are not entierly easy to install. I suggest unbolting the motor from its mounts (they probably need to be replaced anyway so do this as well) then raising the motor with a floor jack so you have much eaiser acess to the motor, no need to disconnect the steering when doing it this way... my 2 cents, unbolt motor, change motor mounts and replace spark plugs all at the same time.. 4-5 hour install with the right tools, equipment and extra set of hands.

    not as hard as some say

    October 09, 2011

    My first order from American Muscle and shipping was great, thanks. I was a concerned over the installation after reading the guide, but that wasnt the case at all, at least on my 93 lx. I started the install with my 15 year old son around 2pm and we had the stock headers and H pipe removed, pump removed and new headers installed by 6-6:30, finished the new X pipe install the next morning. The only thing that had to be removed on the drivers side was the dip-stick, which was easy enough, and we slid the battery back a hair to give extra clearance to get the headers in. The steering linkage was not in our way. On the passenger side, removing the air intake was all that was needed. I also removed the smog pump and went with a shorter belt while we were there. Overall the install process couldnt have went any smoother, if your on the fence with these just buy them, install was fine, fit was fine and couldnt be happier.

    Great headers for the $$

    June 14, 2012

    I went shorties instead of long tubes so i would not have to change the h pipe that was on the car when i bought it. These shorties are a great upgrade for the $$.

    Great Sound!

    March 12, 2012

    These sound great. Great mid-range power increase (2500-4000 rpm). These stick out a little further than stock. I had to tie my A/C line out of the way. Other than that, great fit. You might as well buy motor mounts as well since it is easiest to jack up the motor to get the driver side header on. Overall, very happy with the deep throaty sound these things give.

    Bbk headers

    January 20, 2012

    Worth putting this on. Works well with off road h pipe and flowmasters. Noticed a lil bit hp gain. More sound tho. Really nice. Good underhood appearance. Really good set of headers. Worth the money. You'll feel the difference.
