Look great!

Install was pretty smooth. I have a BBK H-pipe too and I had a little trouble matching up the drivers side collector with the H-pipe. I wish the instructions included torque values for the bolts.

I purchased these for an engine yet to be installed. I talked to a salesman to determine if they came with gaskets and bolting and it didn't appear that they did so I ordered those separately. In fact ...

    BBK Shorty Headers

    I purchased these for an engine yet to be installed. I talked to a salesman to determine if they came with gaskets and bolting and it didn't appear that they did so I ordered those separately. In fact they came with the headers. I'm keeping the extras for "just in case." They fit very well, the flanges are extra heavy so I'm expecting no leaks.

    not bad

    They were an ease to install. Only thing the bolts they send with them are too short so I had to use the oe bolts. And have noticed already they are starting to turn color.. no big deal I didnt put them on for looks anyway. As far as performance I think they may have helped a smidge. But they definately helped with the throaty sound I wanted!!

    BBK well worth it

    Great high quality product you would expect from BBK. Much better looking and less restrictive than the 20 year old factory shorties. Would definitely buy again and recommend to others who are looking for a replacement for their shorties at a great price.

    Not bad for the price.

    Headers are a nice upgrade from stock. There are stress marks from being mandrel bent after being chromed. Not big deal. Comes with a cheap paper gasket but I ditched that for an aluminum crushing gasket. They added a nice rumble when letting off of throttle and decelerating. Also a really sweet echo that I never heard prior. Performance gains seem minimal since im pretty stock otherwise. Possibly a little more up top power. My ONLY issues with these is the small headed bolts that they come with and the cheap studs. I managed to strip 2 studs when I was changing my midpipe a few month later. So I'd consider getting a set or ARP's to avoid this. Fitment is good, barely clear the steering shaft but it does. Had to delete my dipstick tube bracket and bend the tube so that it would route throught the headers properly. (Pain in the butt). Overall a good product for the money. If money allows it, go from something a little better in quality.

    Decent headers, good power gains and looks better under the hood than the old rusty stock one's.

    1991 5.0 stock LX

    The headers fit great on my stock 5.0 no worries about removing them to change the spark plugs. There are no clearance problems with these headers. gave myself a second degree burn on the back of my hand, Be careful.
