Best headers for the buck!

For just under $300 these headers kick serious a**! Noticed a little bit of torque and hp gain plus if you have previous exhaust it really makes it rumble now

  • Long headers will normally give you better results, but they aren't direct bolt on replacements. You'll either need to buy the same name brand matching shorty mid pipe to go with them and 02 extenders, or you'll want to have an exhaust shop custom make the mids. Shorty headers like these are usually a direct bolt on replacement for your existing exhaust manifold and will provide some results usually. They are ideal for someone who has done basic bolt on mods such as a CAI, throttle body, custom tune, etc... If you've done anything major such as performance heads, cams, supercharger, turbocharger, or NOS you will find that these are still too restrictive. One other benefit to shorty headers like these is that since they are direct bolt on replacements, you can mix and match the mid and cat back pipes from various vendors usually to get the exact pipe designs that you want. These BBKs are nice and worth the money. I have the ceramic version of these on my 2001 GT. I would suggest upgrading to the ceramic ones if you have any intent of showing them off. The chrome doesn't hold up for long to the heat your exhaust will put out. Eventually they'll turn blue.

Exit size? Do these headers have a 2.5" exit? I want to do a full 2.5" exhaust system.

Will BBK shorty headers fit 2003 GT w/ 5spd transmission? Does the clutch mechanism get in the way?

    Headers

    These headers are awesome! They add so much sound and power! I have a straight pipe setup and it sounds loud and clean! I would recommend to get this product installed professionaly, unless you have a lot of time on your hands. This was a huge pain to install. There is very little room to work with and had to buy some new tools. But I learned a lot. Noticable HP gain!

    Shorties

    Just noticed a louder rumble in the car but not as much horsepower as they say. Always have to fix the exaust leak on the drivers side, and make sure you get the ceramic coat cause it burned both of my O2 sensors.... Should have gone with the Long Tubes!!!!!!!

    Nice Headers

    Like the other reviews the headers added a nice sound and HP gains were pretty good for the money. Save yourself some time and install these using a lift. Remove the K-member and the starter and the install is a breeze. K-member comes off in 30-40 minutes, manifolds off and headers on in 40 minutes and k-member back on in 30 minutes if you have a lift, trans jack, pole jack and simple tools. Driveway job would be very difficult as you cant get to half the header bolts with the k-member in the way. Whole job took 3 hours once car was cool.

    Not Over 350HP

    I have had these headers on my car (99 GT 4.6L PI) for about 5 years now and when it was non force inducted, the worst thing about them was the installation. Now that I am pushing almost 15PSI through my heads with a T-Trim, I noticed on the dyno that that AF readings were off between passenger and driver side. Passenger was .7:1 less then drivers (11.9:1 vs 11.2:1). After all else checked out fine, the suspicion came down to the passenger side header being more restrictive than the drivers side due that crimped neck right above the exit flange. Several calls to BBK confirmed that these headers should not be used in applications over 350HP, which I assume means 350RWHP. I am making 480RWHP. They said that that neck can get restrictive at higher power levels. Just FYI Also, they are VERY tough to install with the engine in the car. I did mine on a stand, and they were still tough!

    BBK shorty headers

    I wasn\'t sure on what headers I wanted to go with but I was very impressed with my BBK cold-air intake so I decided to stick with BBK and buy these headers. I was not disappointed, not only do I feel the increase in HP but along with my Flowmaster exhaust and cold air intake my car sounds very mean. These headers are a must have.

    GREAT HEADERS

    They look great, well built and nice finish, not to mention it got here in 2 days for the price of one dollar. I love this sites shipping policies. When coupled with off road x-pipe and flowmasters out the back, it was a sick nascar sounding rumble. A+

    Amazing!

    Just got these installed on my 98 GT. If you already have a exhaust installed, it will make it quieter but the rumble will be deeper. I noticed a amazing difference in the way my car breathes and picks up and also makes a great difference with 4.10 gears in the rear. I feel as if the headers where the key to unleashing the beast. I also highly recommend getting your car tuned after installation!

    Great headers

    Glad to see finally changed the photo. Make a huge difference. With the SLP X-pipes, 373 rear end, at all speeds now has a tight roar. Definite power gain. Engine idles smoother, and revs so much happier. Very happy!
