  • for the gas mileage thees headers probably wont show much of a difference with a proper tune from bama you might see a chance as for a shop almost all exhaust shop will do the install for you for their labor fee the trick is just going around and asking if the shop will do it and for how much (having friends that are mechanics helps) good luck.

    2000 3.8L V6

    If you only have basic tools you might want to have it installed. It is an easy install if you have about 5 hours, good jack stands and a few extra driver extentions. Spraying all bolts and posts with a good quality lube really helps. The BBK shorty headers look great. They bolted on really nice and made the true dual Magnaflow sound even better at mid range. I think they also added a few low end ponies. Great price. Ordered on line Friday & in my hands in Ontario Canada on Wensday. Got to love that. My son's 2000 V6 has BBK headers, CAI, 65mm TB & true dual Magnaflow. I have a 2005 V6 with a single axel back Flowmaster. Thanks AM for remembering the V6 guys & your neigbours to the north!

    Great Product

    I would highly recommend this product, took a while for installation but well worth it. Sounds way better then stock(had to replace due to cracked header).A small increase in Hp and the tone is great remember this is a V6!!!

    better than factory

    overall the install was pretty easy. my egr tube on the passenger side wound up getting boogered up because the headers have so much chrome on them. i suggest getting a short piece of pipe from the local hardware store (egrs have pipe thread) and rethreading the egr fittings. i also used the provided egr caps in the kit to help cut some of the chrome off the headers. this made it a breeze the second time around. very slighlty deeper tone. great replacement if the factory manifolds are damaged but wouldnt recommend the install if your seeking large power gains.

    BBK shorty's

    I bought these as part of my new exhaust setup for my 99 mustang V6. Wow, I immediately noticed power gains. I combined this product with a pypes off road x pipe, and flowmaster american thunder dual exhaust. After one day I've already been getting compliments on how mean it sounds. Wake up your v-6 and buy this product

    BBK Shorty's

    They took a he!l of a long time to install due to space issues, but they sound great and I can feel a little kick in the lower rpms. I bought these to replace the notorious cracked stock manifolds and these definitely are worth the money and look good as well. Thanks AM

    BBK V6 Headers

    NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE! dont listen to anyone when they say shorties dont make a difference. makes the v6 take off way faster and smoother! my mustang also sounds a lot deeper! just leave a free day to install if you are doing it yourself. can take a while depending on your tools.
