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 2017 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.

Ask a Question

how many hp gain ??

Dan012

  • If your looking for peak numbers they will vary based on stock X pipe or off road with cats and without cats. BBK did put out a couple of dyno sheets reporting roughly with catted performance x pipe of 12HP and 17ft-lb. With stock x pipe it was 6HP and 7ft-lbs. Note however this is on their machine. Depending on your mods and tune your numbers may be greater or less than these. Peak numbers are also nice but more important are increases across the whole RPM range not just what the peak numbers are because even with the stock x pipe there were gains of 35HP and 18ft-lb and that was in the 4-4.5k RPM range which is very usable power.

Is there any MPG gain?

MX113

  • The MPG is only slight. MAYBE 1-2 MPG at most. What you do gain is a decent kick in the pants power gain. Don't listen to anyone who says that no shorties make power. These shorties certainly do. Anyone who says shorties make no power have probably never driven a car with them on. You will create more TQ, which does create better mileage for you. Don't fear the shorties and go get 'em! I love mine.

WILL THIS FIT ? Will this short headers fits my Magnaflow Street Catback Exhaust (13-14 V6). Item # 48054. if not what type of header should I be looking for.

starr

  • Sure, that wouldn't be a problem. Your catback doesn't directly bolt up to your headers so these Ceramic Tuned Length Shorty Headers would be a great addition to your Mustang.

    BBK header wow big difference

    great quality passenger side as previously discussed takes 4 hrs.. removing started a big help.. driver side should have been easier. how ever after installing header...found out studs coming off head were of by about 1/32" flange would not go over studs..had to use step drill to enlarge holes...then could install flange.. suggest check new header against old exhaust manifold be for installing header.. might be easier to enlarger holes with out header installed if it is required but results were AWESOME

    First off I ordered these on a Thursday afternoon and they arrived the very next day! Great job AM! Love the sound I'm getting out of these. I have a flowmaster x-pipe with their outlaw axel back and these shorties made the tone much tighter and deeper. I can feel a bit of a power increase as well in the mid RPM range. It used to be when I was in 3rd gear it wouldn't exactly get up and go when I hit the gas, well not anymore. This is a great bang for your buck, direct bolt on mod for your V6. I HIGHLY recommend these.

    BBK Ceramic Tuned Length Shorty Headers (11-16 V6)

    BBK Ceramic Tuned Length Shorty Headers 2011 V6. WOW... Lets talk about that for a while. The headers came in perfect condition. The ceramic was smoothly coated and shined like glass. "We" installed them on a hoist with good lighting and the total install took about 4.5 hours with a coffee break or two in there. Now for the grit! The driver side install was a breeze, about .5 of the 4.5 total. On the other hand, the passenger side, a whole new ball game. The fitment was very good. Now the BUT. "But" you are in for a treat with this side. Your fingers had better be the size of a very small child to be able to get the bottom lower nut on the rear of the flange. It is almost next to impossible to even start it. Impossible to see And to turn it down tight, well all I can say is, have a ball. We did! It will take most of the 4 hours left to just get it started but once you do, that's when the fun starts. To turn it down, you need to get the nut to the flange and try to get it to catch on the stud. Then gently try to turn it with your baby fingers. After it is started, "we" cut a wrench off with the torch at about 2 inches long. Then tried to turn it as much as "we" could. After about 3.9 hours and lots of talk about each others mothers, it was over. At last, it was tight and the headers were on. If you are new to the game of cars, "We" (as in two) suggest that you have them installed by a Professional. We had a good time putting them on, and some "FUN" along the was, but it is a Band*h of a job. Thanks to AM for the quick shipping and well packed pipes. The sound of the headers and Pypes Mid Muffler with black tips is awesome. Have fun Stang Gang!

    Totally happy with the bbk headers

    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.
