Description
More Horsepower And Torque. Improve the performance of your 5.0L Coyote Mustang throughout the entire RPM band with a set of Borla Long Tube Headers. These Borla Headers will greatly improve your 5.0 Mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive stock factory manifolds to increase your Pony's horsepower and torque. Significant increases in rear wheel horsepower have been seen when installed with a matching Borla ATAK Catback System.

Quality Construction. Borla Long Tube Exhaust headers are CNC mandrel bent from 1-3/4" 16 gauge aircraft-quality T-304 stainless steel tubing for unrestricted airflow. They feature one piece 3/8" header flanges for added strength, leak-free performance and an OEM style fit.

Recommended Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that these Long Tube Headers have to offer, AmericanMuscle recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

Required Upgrade. The Borla XR-1 Long Tube Mustang Headers will require the use of a Borla ATAK, Borla 'S' Type, or Borla Touring system with included X-pipe for proper installation (See drop down option above).

Application. These Borla XR-1 Long Tube Headers are specifically designed to fit the 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs equipped with the 4 valve 5.0L Coyote engine.

Technical notes. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only.

Will the Borla XR-1 Headers match up with the Boss 302 Quad Exhaust I want to buy the XR-1's but i don't know if they will match up with my quad exhaust. i already have Borla S-type mufflers.

  • No these will not match up with a quad exhaust. If you want long tubes and retain your quad exhaust, then you'll need to purchase Kooks long tubes and a the Kooks Boss Quad exhaust h-pipe. You can then reuse your factory over axle pipes, Borla axle back, and your factory Boss side exhaust pipes. American Muscle has a catted version of the Kooks Quad Exhaust H Pipe, and Kooks has the off road version if you buy from them directly.

If you get the Borla Xr-1 Long Tube Headers installed with the Borla ATAK Catbacl system, will a tune be required?

  • A tune is required in this instance because the XR-1 headers and Borla cat backs delete the catalytic converters. You will get a check engine light and will not run with maximum efficiency without a tune.

Borla XR-1 paired with Borla S-Type volume? Would this setup be to loud for daily driving or would it be similar to just having the catback system at cruising RPM's?

  • I have had the Borla XR-1 headers on my 2011 GT for about 2 months now. I have the Borla x-pipe and Borla cat-back S-type. I will not hide the fact the it is VERY load. Under "light" foot acceleration, it is load but not extreme. When you plant your right foot, the sound that follows will wake the dead. The s-type mufflers from Borla have lost the deep rumble that they had with the stock manifolds and cats. The sound is now much higher pitched I have been looking to change out the back half of the exhaust to something that is not as raspy and has a deeper sound. I am thinking about the MBRP "Race" cat-back. I have have sound files on youtube of Mustangs with headers, no-cats and this cat-back and it sounds good to me. Anyway, my main point is if you install this, it is EXTREMELY load.

    Loud, Proud, and WOWED!

    Oh boy. These babies are LOUD. I already had a Borla S-Type catback but these bad boys just scream. Cruising on the highway they sound about the same but a little deeper... but as soon as you touch the throttle is sounds the gates of h*** are opening. Needless to say, I'm a fan. I don't currently have cats anymore, my county doesn't require emissions as of now so if you go that route, it will smell a little different without the cats and backfire here and there... which I get a little chuckle out of.. and did I mention it's loud? Now, on to installation. Hubbah! These took me and a buddy about 2 8hour days in my garage. I used jack stands and a few man powered wrenches and sockets. Getting to some of the bolts on the stock headers were a pain in the butt. The "instructions" that Borla included were a joke to say the least (it basically tells you to go to a shop), and they sent me the wrong bolts for the new headers... the threads weren't the same to bolt to the engine. I had to remove the battery, the starter, cross member, my airbox, the steering shaft, both motor mounts, and jack the engine up. The driver side went in without any issues, the passenger side was a pain in the but because of the air conditioning unit. But nothing that someone with a bit of know-how can't tackle. I will say that bolting these on vs taking the stock ones off are WAY easier. Do I recommend? Yes. Just make sure you leave yourself plenty of time and get a tune.

    Great quality and great performance

    Although these headers are more expensive than most brands, the build quality and fit more than make up for it. Unless you have the patience and the tools (i.e. lift), I recommend that you have these installed by a pro. They had to drop the k-member to do the install properly. I installed these with the Borla x-pipe (cat delete) and the Borla catback system with s-type mufflers. The sound at idle is fairly loud, but aggressive. The sound at full throttle will make the ground shake. The headers, x-pipe and catback system with tune definately added power. I have not had a chance to dyno the car yet, but will shortly in the future. Great product!
