Picked up the car from FORD and install was $500. The engine is way quieter and revs up smoothly. More torque noticed for sure and a deeper exhaust note coupled with my Flowmaster American Thunder axlebacks.

will these headers hook up to my magnaflow catted xpipe? will the fit be nice and tight or might i have to adjust some things in order to get it to be a tight fit?

  • General rule of thumb is to stick with the same brand header and mid-pipe just to eliminate any possibility of needing to make minor adjustments for a proper seal. Since these are Ford Racing, you shouldn't run into any fitment issues bolting it up to the Magnaflow X. That being said, since they are different brands, there is a slim chance you might have to make some slight adjustments.

Do you need a tune if shorty headers are installed onto a GT? If I installed these onto my GT, would I need to tune it after? I do have a Diablo tuner so I could, just not sure if I need to and if so, what adjustments woudl I need to make?? Thanks!!

Ford Racing Headers I purchased the FRPP Intake manifold with the GMS 62mm TB and have yet to install them as I want to add these FR Headers. My question is, do I need an additional BAMA Tune for these headers with the TB and Intake? I have the BAMA download for the TB and Intake, however should I request another BAMA tune for these headers as I want to install all these bolt ons at the same time?

  • Absolutely! Anytime you had anything to your car you won't get the full benefit of the product without a tune.

    headers

    Love the sound. installed along with flowmaster super american mufflersI installed these babys in under 2 hours (i work for ford) Directions are decently detailed. Easiest and fastest way: Disconnect alternator with bracket, unscrew the motor mounts ( 1 on each side) use a motor hoist to hoist the motor up about 1 1/2-2 inches up. This will allow clearence without having to take off the starter. Disconnect battery ofcourse since leaving the starter in. Disconnect stearing column. Disconnect mid pipes. Remove headers and install the in opposite order. Hope this helps!

More torque noticed for sure and a deeper exhaust note coupled with my Flowmaster American Thunder axlebacks. Outside the car sounds fantastic and inside with the windows up you can still hear the low deep rumble. Thanks AM for the great products.

    Very Clean Rumble

    I installed these with a Pypes X-pipe w/Cats and Flow Master 40 series. This setup produces a very clean rumble and pulls hard through 2nd and 3rd. I would have given them a 5, but the studs connecting the header to the down pipes are poorly engineered. You will be better off using the stock studs and nuts. Do not forget the tuner, you will need it. If not, the check engine light will come on due to the 02 sensor reposition.

    Way too much.....

    The headers and hardware look great. Shipped out quick like AM always does. I have no idea what the headers sound like yet. 9 hours of pure torture and I called FORD to come get the car. They will install them on Monday and hopefully I will be happy. I am waiting for a big "I told you so" from the wife as well. Save time and money and get these things installed by a pro.

    Headers

    I put them on my 06 with a cat back exhaust. They were pretty easy to put on but the direction don't tell u everything u need to take off. On the passenger side u have to take the starter out. And then the drivers side after u take the steering column out be sure to take off the motor mount for more room and easier removal. But all and all i noticed more power through 2nd and 3rd.

    Awesome sound and fitment.

    Bought these headers because when trying to install my JBA X-Pipe, I broke a stud off of the collector on my stock manifolds. So I figured, hey, might as well just upgrade while I'm here. I've had long tubes before and I just didn't want something that loud, so I decided on these. I had them installed by a shop, but fitment is perfect and they sound awesome. Performance gains are negligible, but they definitely sound a lot better than factory manifolds.

    Very Nice

    These headers are great. They fit nice, look good (the casual observer won't even notice), sound sic, and the power gains down low are real. Peak hp gains don't tell the whole story. These shorties make a really nice improvement from about 2-4k rpm. Along with my FRPP cut n clamp xpipe and my stock m5320gtb (Bullitt) mufflers, the sound is quiet but deep and authoritative. The install was a pretty big pain, but others have commented about that. I followed the instructions in the box, but I jacked the motor and took off the "ear" of the mount on the passenger side. That allowed access to the two front bottom bolts. Aside from that it's straight forward but still a beating. It was worth it in the end though, and I'm really glad I went with these headers.

    Solid Parts

    The FRPP Headers are a nice piece. I highly recommend removing the motor mounts completely. It makes the install much smoother and easier. Removing the header studs was a little tedious due to the hex heads on the studs stripping and not coming out easy. Double nutting the studs got all of the studs out. The fitment of the headers was really good and over all the install wasn't that bad. The performance gains weren't not very noticeable. I understood before buying them that they wouldn't add much HP and TQ. They look good and sound good.

    Ford shorty headers

    I was going to install these myself, and probably should have, but I figured that after years of wrenching, I could pay someone younger than myself to do this! LOL. Anyway, I can't say much about the install other than to check the latest instructions that say to move the engine in the mounts as far to the passenger side as possible. This step was not in the included instructions. When I first started my car, I was surprised that it didn't seem any louder at all. The tone quickly changes as you get over 4000 RPM though! Sounds great and along with the airaid race CAI and Bama tuner that I installed the day before there is defiantly a performance increase! Tomorrow I will see if there is a mileage increase as well.
