Will these headers work with GT40P heads?

Gmills

  • Unfortunately, these MAC Chrome Equal Length Shorty Headers will not work with GT40-P. Mac offers a specific header for GT40-P headers, however, they are unequal lengths.

    Mac equal length shorty headers.

    In my 50 years was the first set of headers that I didn't have to take a ball peen hammer to. Fit was first rate. Do yourself a favor though. Spend the extra 40 bucks and install new motor mounts. Clearance was excellent. They look like a chrome ball of hissing cobras. My Camaro buddies even drooled. Make sure you have a GOOD floor jack. Should sound sweet with my chambered x pipe and dynamax ultra flows.

    Good bang for your buck!

    Small hiccup with initial shipment as the driver’s side header had a manufacturing defect. AM sent a second set out and this delayed my install by a week. All in the equal length headers are a tough install and you'll want spark plug wires with 45 degree boots or you will have wires right on top of a hot header. Decent performance gain when installed with the off road H pipe. Exhaust growl is now real nasty! With weather improving a 70 mile test drive on open highway was completed in 1/2 hour. Thanks AM.

    Gains in power & torque

    As with typical headers, there is a noticeable gain in power & torque over stock manifolds. However I did not realize how much room the equal length header use up in engine bay. It is a tight fit I will more than likely go unequal length or a block hugger type header next time I am looking for a shorty type header. Fitment to engine & stock "Y" pipe was bang on. For those on a budget a good buy.

    MAC Chrome Equal Length Shorty Headers

    I must say 'wow' Purchased these headers and was shocked to have them delivered the next day - free. Yes. What a difference once installed. Looks perfect, shiny and fits so great on the foxbody. The road test revealed exactly what I wanted to happen. Increased horsepower. And I am so pleased. Time to find another part to purchase from American Muscle.
