Hello, I've heard that these headers won't work with a stock steering shaft on a 93 gt 5.0 5 speed? True or false?

does these headers fits one a 302 with gt40p heads?

stangalex

  • These BBK Chrome Long Tube Headers 1-5/8 in. headers should bolt up to your GT40 heads with no problem, however you may start to run into fitment issues in other places such as your spark plugs and other components.

    Glitches

    Funtionality is no problem. The headers are just as they were written up to be. I expected some minor difficulties with installation so no problem there either. I was a bit surprised that there was not more care about the finishing of the welds, deburring etc... before applying the chrome finish. I really think you could have done a much better job there.

    Good Deal

    I purchased these headers because i needed a quality replacement for my old stock ones. By myself it took about 7-8 hours to install but it was well worth it. They came with all the necessary hardware and gaskets and sound amzing. I made the mistake of not buying 02 extenders but other than that they really are a great deal and i have no problems with the fit in the tight engine bay.

    Pretty good, but chorme disappears fast!

    Bought these hoping they'd make a huge difference in torque. Was right, ended up dropping a whole 3 tenths of my 1/8 mile time. However, when putting them in, it is neccessary to remove the passenger side valve cover to slide the header in. It will NOT fit otherwise and you'll chip and scar the valve cover if you try. These are extremely sturdy headers and gaskets, havent had to replace them since I put them on in june of 2011. (its now december 2011). Also, they say the bbk h pipe is a direct bolt on... it is and ISN'T. It will take some muscle to get the holes to line up and thus connected. Final answer, WOULD reccomend buying so take the plunge!

    longtube what they don't say

    Ok these are great headers if you are prepared to 1 pull your starter to fit passenger side 2 pull the motor mounts and jack up the engine 3 driver side goes in from underneath with the car jacked up about a foot 4 the O2 sensors need extentions or cut and rewire overall 4.5 stars

    Awesome - easy install

    I have been building my 93 notchback and just complemented it with a custom build 302 stroker motor, during this project I have relied on the availability of parts and American muscle has been a valuable resource, the BBK headers wear a perfect fit with the BBK system already on the car.. Since the engine was out they were a breeze to install and lined up perfectly with the heads. Once the motor was in, they reconnected with the system in a snap! Great product...

    Great budget long tubes!

    While installation was straightforward, there were some clearance issues with these headers (steering shaft and k-member). One highly recommended part would be a heat shield for covering your starter, as the headers run close and could cause some heat damage. Overall, an awesome buy with excellent performance and awesome sound too!

    It took a little work getting it aligned with the log tube headers, but it looks and works great

    Great sound, looks, and performance increase.

    These headers sound great and noticeably increase your power. But by far the best thing about these headers is the noise. They sound great. It was night and day between these and my old ones. They even increased my average mpg! A few things to keep in mind- make sure you have a dual exhaust transmission crossmember. I have a 1984 mustang and didn't realize this until the time of install. Luckily it was an easy part to find. Other than that it was pretty easy. Buy these headers, you won't be disappointed. I get compliments all the time!
