Description
Tuned Length Design. BBK Shorty "Tuned Length" Headers out perform both the stock manifolds and regular shorty headers. Tuned Length Headers have a unique extended tubular design that allows for unrestricted exhaust flow to increase horsepower and torque. Perfect for street and strip.

Silver Ceramic Coating. These Tuned Length Shorty 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 Shorty Tuned Length 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 additional strength, leak-free performance and a OEM fit. The headers are then finished with BBK's high-temp Silver Polished Ceramic Coating for good looks and to lower under hood temperatures.

Application. Designed as a direct bolt on, these BBK Shorty Tuned Length Headers will bolt straight up in the stock location to the factory Mid-Pipe without any modifications on both automatic and manual 2011 to 2016 3.7L V6 Mustangs to improve exhaust flow and sound.

Technical Notes. These BBK Shorty Headers are CARB certified (CARB EO Number: D-245-16) and 50 state legal.

Check Engine light? Without a tune will this make my check engine light come on?

Brando Year: 2013 Model: V6

  • No these are a direct drop in and will bolt right into place of the factory manifolds without any modifications. And depending on the condition the only thing you will need are new gaskets between the heads and the headers. Just for the record a tuner and Bama tunes will get you all the power that is waiting for you to unlock. It is the easiest best bang for the buck up grade you will ever do for your car.

Tune? Would this require changing from my factory tune?

Gordon14 Year: 2014 Model: V6

  • A tune wouldn't be necessary buy you would most likely get a little more out of these headers with a tune.

    I already have an after market performance exle-back exhaust on the car and adding the bbk headers did exactly what I was looking for in the tone. The over all sound of the car is awesome. Nice but not an over powering sound that u would regret. Install time was about five hours. And yes you can feel the added horse power.

    You have to have headers!

    These BBK headers are a very high quality item. The Ceramic coating was excellent. The instructions were perfect, make sure that you follow them precisely and you can't go wrong. That said, doing them in my garage was a pain. If you have a buddy with a hoist talk him into letting you use it. The stock exhaust manifolds were very restrictive, these really let the engine breath! They work very well with my cold air intake and Bama tuner!

    Great Sound!!!

    I bought these to complete my full exhaust. The headers will give you a nice deep tone to your exhaust. Power gains are throughout the powerband and better throttle response. Installing them is a PITA!! Driver side is simple enough the passenger side is a right squeeze. Take your time and it can be done with floor jack some jack stands and hand tools. Took me and a friend of mine 6 hours. From jacking it up to starting the car. Great product!!! See my youtube sound. Not the greatest but it'll do. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ce6kJ33NfcI

    Huge Difference from Stock

    Installing these headers was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. Took about 3 hours by myself. Added nice low-mid range toque and cleaned up the sound nicely. Very pleased. Couple installation tips: 1) I sprayed the nuts with PB blaster the night before and let it soak overnight. Each one came off extremely smooth. A few studs w the nuts ended up coming out as well. If this happens, use a 5mm socket and ratchet and a 1/2 wrench and remove the nut from the stud, then use the 5mm socket to snug the studs back into place. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. 2) Remove the battery and plastic battery holder as this will free up more room for the passenger side rear lower nut. 3) Get a 1/2in ratcheting wrench with a flex head. Saved me loads of time. But DO NOT use the ratcheting wrench on the rear lower passenger side nut. USE A BOX END. The distance in between the header and the stud is too close and will lock the wrench in between making it impossible to pull out. I had to use a box end wrench to loosen the nut, pull the ratcheting wrench out, and then tighten the nut with the box end. 4) Use the supplied BBK gaskets. I've read people reused their stock gaskets which I think is a mistake. The BBK gaskets are perfectly cut for the shorty headers and are one piece whereas the stock gaskets are three layers of metal and look cheap. Overall, I will continue to be a returning customer to American Muscle! Thank you!

    Very nice

    Added a nice sound to my exhaust. Nice power gain. I can tell the difference from before they installed. They fit great once they are installed but the mechanic had a hard time with the nut access. Glad I had a mechanic install as I would not have had the right tool for the nuts. Especially on the passager side install as it was very tight.

    Life's to short to drive a stock car

    Took less than three hours by myself working on the floor w/ jack and stands. I didn't remove the battery or the starter. Didn't even dis-connect the battery. Ratcheting wrenches help. Pretty easy actually. But I've been working on cars for a loooong time! Noticeable increase in low and mid range torque which is exactly what these engines lack. Took me a long time to decide to do this, but glad I did. Fit was very good, basically a simple R/R job.

    The beast breathes

    Took about 4 hours to install mostly because of the passenger side being a pain. Had to take off the starter but that took 5 minutes. Everything fit just fine and was well worth getting these. I can tell a major difference on the interstate from 60 ... It defiantly gets up and goes a lot quicker than before.

    Good Value

    The headers arrived in good condition. We used new Ford gaskets instead of the ones supplied by BBK. There is a marked difference in quality! With a fresh BAMA tune, you can really feel the difference in the seat of your pants. I bought the ceramic coated ones, and they look great. A nice upgrade at a decent price point.

    Adds a growl to the V6.

    I had these installed with an Airaid cold air intake and a tune about two months ago. It feels like the car has gone feral. There was a noticeable power gain with the combination of the three, but what I really like is the sound. The overall tone is lower, which gives it a nice growl when you're cruising around.
