And feature one piece laser cut 3/8" header flanges for additional strength, leak-free performance and a OEM fit. These headers are then completed in a bright chrome finish for good looks and a long life.

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.

Gains and sound What kind of hp/torque gains will I see and will it adjust the sound a lot?

Anferny

  • Shorty headers are more focused on sound rather than power, especially on the v6. However, depending on what other exhaust mods you have, it'll be a lot better then the restrictive stock manifolds. It should increase the hp and torque a little, maybe 10, but it'll help if you have worked on the other end of the exhaust.

Any tuning required? Will these throw any codes? Do I have to cut anything or remove my cats? Also what are the expected gains?

JonathanN

  • No tuning is "required" but it is always good to tune for any aftermarket part you put on the car to get the most out of it. These are a direct swap for the factory manifolds so you don't have to cut anything or remove your cats. No codes will be thrown either.

    Like most of the other reviews passenger side is a pain, spent most of the time installing passenger side Instructions are good. And so is fitment Expected better quality from BBK and alittle disappointed I got these because I changed out mufflers and after didnt like the sound, these headers help cover up the Ricey sound and really sounds good now, Performance is better and is noticable Overall with sound and performance and fit it is well worth the 12 hrs it took to install.

    Long Installation...

    It took my Dad and I about 10-12 hours to complete this install. Its a very slow, painstaking install that requires time and patience. The hardest part is bolting the shorty headers to the engine. I do not have a tune so the performance gain could be more if I had one but other than that, in the low rpms, the gain is noticeable. Probably the most noticeable thing about these headers is the exhaust note. It made the exhaust more deep sounding (I have the pypes pype bombs) and there is a little bit of a lopey idle! It kind of sounds like it has ghost cams. Check out my Youtube if you would like to see a video of the headers www.youtube.com/broncoKING24

    At first I was skeptical about purchasing these headers mainly because I had heard people talk down about shorties.. MAN AM I GLAD I PURCHASED THEM!! The power gains are slightly noticeable but it's the sound that gives them their bang! My car sounds like the beast I wanted without the insurance price. I will suggest that you have these installed by a muffler shop or a professional, it took me much longer than I had expected.... Over all I say these are a perfect mod without the imperfect price!

    Awesome product! Get a 1/2" ratcheting wrench, installation was tedious.

    Combined with the Roush axleback mufflers, the V6 now sounds amazing. Deep, loud growl and nothing negative to say about the sound. *Install tips: - Get some long extensions (12-18in) and an impact to detach/attach the H-Pipe (15mm deep well) from the headers. Hooking it back up with the Roush hardware requires a 17mm deep well socket. - If the studs come out along with the nut, grab some vice grips and clamp on the middle of the stud to remove the nut. The stud has a 5mm (I think) head so you can rethread the stud into the engine before putting the headers in place. - Only 3 of the 6 nuts on each side can be tightened with a ratchet because the new headers will not allow a socket to fit. Be ready to make many, many turns with the wrench to tighten these bolts. This is where I think a ratcheting wrench would help save time. I probably dropped my 1/2 wrench 15 times trying to tighten these nuts. - The bottom left stud on the passenger side has very little clearance for even a wrench to access, so be patient with this one and do not get a closed end wrench stuck in there. Enjoy, the install is not difficult, just time consuming. BBK still makes an excellent product!

    Great sound, awesome looks

    I received the headers in 5 days as promised. unfortunately when I open the package the headers had over 50% rust on them. AM rectified this problem ASAP. it was not that hard to put on. Luckily my buddy had small hands so we did not had to drop the starter to tie the passenger side. it took us about 3 hours to put them on. it made the car sound deeper but nothing mayor. I bought them as a replacement for a cracked stock manifold. the engine bay looks great with less clutter. I highly recommend it,

    Hard to install but worth it

    I installed these over the course of a weekend. Took about 6 hours per side, but if you've installed headers before it should take you less time. The old manifolds come out easily but bolting in the headers is a slow painstaking job. You do need to drop the starter motor to get to the lower back bolt on the passenger side. That being said, the car now sounds much better even with the stock exhaust. It's not much louder just better. The sound in the 4000 rpm and up range is awesome. Low end torque seems much improved. Overall performance and gas mileage also seems better. I would recommend this product but, unless you are really patient and mechanically inclined, have your favorite shop install them.

    BBK chrome tuned length headers

    After reviewing other reviews, I had the headers installed. The shop had to pull the starter to tighten the back bolts on the passenger side of the car. They took 3 1/2 hours and charged me $150.00. The sound is great, low and like a V8. I haven't put it on a dyno, but it feels good.

    Shorty headers

    Bought these and did them by myself! Not to bad! But do yourself a favor and remove the starter on the passenger side. Headers bolts will be easier to do! Also on the passenger side put the header in from the bottom! BBK instructions should be redone! Other than that LOVE them! 2015 V6!

    Looks great and decent power gains down low

    Okay so I installed these headers with a friend in a day, the mechanic that said he did it on his lunch break must have had a LONG break. It took me and my buddy Approximately 7 hours with air tools etc. Getting the old manifolds off is not difficult at all, now installing the new headers sucks especially on the passenger side. You will definitely need a ratchet wrench to do this job do not attempt it without it, it is very frustrating turning nuts an 1/8th turn at a time. Now for the good news it does add a little more growl to the car and improved torque down low so It is a worthwhile mod.
