Description
More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the performance of your SOHC 4.6L Mustang GT with a set of BBK Long Tube Headers. These BBK ceramic coated headers will greatly improve your Mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive stock factory cast iron manifolds and increase your Pony's horsepower and torque. Increases of up to 22 RWHP have been seen when installed with a BBK shorty H-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 BBK Construction. BBK Long Tube Exhaust headers are manufactured from 1 5/8" 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 silver 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.

Application. These Ceramic Long Tube Headers are designed to fit the coupe and convertible, manual transmission 1996 to 2004 GT Mustangs. BBK long tube headers require a flanged end shorty midpipe in order to function properly. BBK recommends using a BBK shorty Mid-Pipe for the best performance gains (see drop down option above).

Technical notes. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only. An O2 Sensor Extension Kit and BBK shorty mid-pipe are required for installation.

clearance issue ? Will i have a clearance issue if i used H&R Spring and it dropped about 2 inches in the front and 1.5 in the back? Will the headers be hitting the ground everytime there is a pot hole ???

1323matt Year: 1999 Model: GT

  • I have H&R Race Springs on my '01 Cobra with the BBK long tube headers and do not have any unusual issues with clearance under normal driving. Speed bumps will slow you down but hat is about the extent of it.

Will these fit when I install the PI Head kit on my 98 Gt 5-speed?

GtAZ Year: 1998 Model: GT

    BBK Longtube Headers

    These headers sounds amazing. I currently have these installed with a bbk o/r h pipe and bassani catback. I couldnt be happier with the way it turned out. I will say the instructions for these are terrible.. they dont tell you that you will need O2 extension wires, you need to remove and bend the dipstick around the headers and 2 of the header bolts dont fit so u will need to buy shorter bolts.. but the product is awesome and completely worth it in the end.

    Not that Hard

    These are a great addition to the mustang and sound great. A lot of people will tell you they are hard as crap to install and they can be difficult. The easiest way to install without using a lift is to jack the car up, take the wheels off, brake caliber and roders, and then take the springs out. After this undo the 8 bolts that hold the K member in and drop the K. Once you drop the K installing the headers is a breeze except for like 3 bolts that you are going to need a swivel to get to.

    Great looks and performance

    The pipes look great in the car. They stand out as soon as you open the hood, and are easily seen from the front wheel well. Looks awesome! Performance wise, it definitely pulls much harder up top than it used to. These headers with a BBK catted H & Borla (non-stinger) catback is not loud. I am going to probably opt for a Pypes ORH...

    Sounds awesome

    I matched these with a BBK off-road X-pipe in my 96 GT and I feel a major difference in power. Its also very loud, even with my stock catback. It will cost a pretty penny to get these installed, but it was totally worth it!!!! People tell me they can hear my car from blocks away now!

    Long Tube headers

    A bit tricky to put in, but they look awesome and sound great plus gives noticeable power improvement. Easier when installed with a flexible oil dipstick as the stock one is not able to fit between header tubes.

    Awesome sound

    I got these installed with an off road bbk h-pipe and slp loudmouth 2 catback. The sound changing from the catted x-pipe and stock headers is amazing. After around 2.5k rpm the car opens up alot and has a very loud and deep growl. Best investment yet!!!

    Awesome

    These things look awesome under the hood/under the car. Really gives the car a nice sound as well, not to mention the nice HP boost you get to the wheels. Worth every penny if you are going to go with full length headers. Won\'t be disappointed.

    Great Addition

    These headers are a mixed blessing. They are a GREAT performance addition and add a LOT to the deep throaty sound, but are miserable to install. I honestly don't recommend this installation to a novice. If you aren't a mechanic and don't have access to a hoist, pay to have someone install them for you. But, do install them!! They're awesome!!

    UNHAPPY

    Directions were pretty useless.Pipes fit nice after a little struggle.After 4 months on the car any part of the pipes under the car are rusty and peeling.Dont buy these if you only want to do the job one time.
