Warranty ? What is the warranty on these headers? I've read all about these and am ready to buy them but one of the reviews says that theirs cracked so, I'm wondering what the warranty is for this product if I'm shelling out over $400.00 and the more to have them installed by a local shop. Thanks for your help.

what are they made out of? Just want to know what the headers are made from? Like metal wise, are they stainless or aluminum or something else. Thanks

Will these work with an auto transmission?

Strafuss124 Year: 2008 Model: GT

  • Shorty headers are the same length as your stock headers and can be used with all your original exhaust plumbing. There shouldn't be any issues with clearance with the transmission.

    Be prepared

    Overall excellent fit & quality, just a pain to put in... It really put some pep in the step, especially in the low end, coupled with FRPP performance pack, helped to fill a few lulls in the throttle response. Be prepared to remove the passenger side engine mount, I found that you can support and jack the engine on one of the ledges by the oil pan with a 2x3 and a hydraulic jack. The starter does have to come out as well. Really helps to have someone to help, a second set of hands. Also, removal of the battery & battery box makes things go easier. Ratcheting wrenches really helped in the tight spaces (gear wrench or craftsman, swivel head and angled), and few long entensions for the sockets worked wonders. A challenge, but well worth it!

    Highly Recommended!

    The way to go to replace that factory garbage of a rusty manifold mess! These look so good and sound great! Fit and finish second-to-none! These were my choice not only because of cost, but ease of install and the fact that the factory cats are not that restrictive, no worries of check-engine lights etc. Seems to be the right amount of flow/back pressure for this system: BBK Ceramic shorties, FRPP X-Pipe, Pypes Bombs poking out the back, and a custom tune from Bama tops it off! Sounds like a true Beast! Thanks AM!!!

    Nicely Made BBK!

    Nicely made and engineered product. Impressed with the quality and engineering BBK put into these. I don't know how, but even in the tight space these maneuvered into place easier than the stock ones came out. NOT a DIY for inexperienced or ILL equipped and don't expect it to be quick and easy. I'm an intermediate DIYer and it took a bit over 12 hrs over 3 days. I'm sore but satisfied with a good upgrade. Did it on jackstands on gravel driveway. One thing I did I didn't see anyone else mention, to get top front header nut I pulled the belt and loosened the AC compressor bolts to give my deepwell socket room to get it. DID NOT remove, just loosed the bolts so with the belt off could get a little more clearance. Also, didn't remove the starter nor mid-pipe. Like for the AC compressor, I loosened the starter to give clearance wiggle room, and for the mid-pipe I loosened the rear clamps and dropped the front and supported it with jackstands. Made it tight to get the engine mount back in but with a little fiddling it went. From the reviews I was expecting louder and deeper than it is. I have a 2009 Bullitt with the special h-pipe and FR-500 axlebacks. It actually did deepen a little, but overall is more mellow tone. At WOT it's not quiet, but it's a little deeper. Overall, I'd call it a less edgy sound. By seat of the pants, don't feel much but the test run with with a passenger so I'll likely see a bit when solo minus passenger weight. Tempted to go to highflow catted mid-pipe but don't want to lose the Bullitt H-pipe so probably won't. Header - check, SF4 tuner - check, hmmm, Cams or intake next.... Thanks BBK and AM for a great shopping and buying experience.

    Best looking header Ive ever owned. I had the JBA's on my 07 stang and was not impressed. The BBK's are on my 09 stang and are the way to go. Had them installed at a local shop for the simple reason I didnt have time to do myself. Ive had the headers on my car for about 2000 miles and not one problem. Still look new and the sound is great. The car ran better after I AM sent me a new tune. Love them!!

    A worthwhile pain in my butt!

    As you have surely read from other reviews, these things are absolutely horrible to install, but I was able to do it myself (with some help from a couple of friends dropping by from time to time) in my home garage with basic tools. I really enjoy working on my car and take pride that I have done all of my modifications (aside from the custom tune from BAMA) myself at home. Having said that, I am glad I did the install myself but they were very difficult to install. The most challenging part for me was dealing with the flange bolts between the H-Pipe and the headers as they are located in the tunnel between the footboxes and the transmission and there is very little room there. I spent the majority of the day on my back (roughly 10 hours to do the install for me) so if you don't have a lift, make sure you have a nice creeper or have your wife bring you an old pillow like mine did. Other than the install, the headers are great. Unlike some other headers, they come with gaskets so you have everything you need to do the install. In pictures it looks like you can barely see the headers in the engine bay but really, you can see them pretty well and they look great under the hood. I noticed a warmer (and very wonderful) sound in the car while driving, but the overall noise level with this mod alone will not change much outside the car. If you want loud, you will have to do other mods, but I love the sound of the car now with just the headers and some axle backs.

    Great Product, Disappointing Sound

    Everyone has covered the install wows so I won't. I run BBK shorty's, BBK catted e-pipe and FRPP axle backs. I picked shortys because of our e-test laws here. BBK fit and finish is outstanding, very nice product. With stock manifolds the sound at lower speeds (around town) was aggressive and old school muscle (someone referred to it as subtle NASCAR). Highway was great, down right nasty yet beautiful. Now with with shortys around town its much a more subdued sound (I compare it to an aggressive Subaru STI almost). Highway is certainly more aggressive. If I had to do it over again I'd opt for long tubes to retain that aggressive, muscle car sound. Oh and I've since learned that if you opt for LT's theres no issue with e-testing, with HF cats they'll pass.

    nice product

    we own an 09 gt aniv. mustang. our first drive was long distance on interstate @ 65mph. we filled up and were suprised to get 33mpg. i took car back to ford and they put on the xpipes, coldair intake, and hiflo muffs, i then installed the bbk throttlebody, which all the above dropped the mpg to 27+ which is still great for a muscle car,but sad to lose 6 mpg. i decided to have ford install a whipple supercharger,to my suprise the mpg stayed the same. i just had a pro. mech. install the bbk shorty headers, he spent 4.5 hrs - he said it was a little hard but all matched great. once again i road test @ 65mph. come back to same station and fill up 30+mpg no way- repeat same process-same result wow . i really didn't care for the supercharger sound but now with the headers to me it kinda sounds like the old 4bl waaaa sound of which i'm very happy with . oh yes more than enough pwr.
