Description
More Horsepower And Torque. Replace those restrictive stock factory manifolds with a set of MAC shorty headers to improve your Mustang's exhaust flow and increase your pony's horsepower and torque.

Unequal Length Design.
These MAC Performance Headers feature a shorty, unequal length design that in addition to making more power also cleans up your engine bay for a show-winning look.

High Quality Construction.
Constructed from 1-5/8" mandrel bent 16 gauge steel tubing so there are no kinks to rob you of power, these MAC Performance Headers feature 2-1/2" True Fit Collectors that eliminate the need for gaskets which are prone to leak and blow out. These headers are then completed in a bright chrome finish for good looks and a durable long life.

Application. Designed as a direct bolt on, these MAC Shorty Unequal Length Headers will bolt straight up in the stock location to the factory Mid-Pipe on both automatic and manual 1979 to 1993 5.0L V8 Mustangs, including the LX 5.0, GT and SVT Cobra models, for improved exhaust flow and sound.

    Mac Unequal Shorty Headers

    October 13, 2014

    These are nice headers for the price, but I had to modify to fit my 1985 5.0 Stang. 1985 HO 302, EFI, has the o2 sensor in the manifold on the pass side and there is no port on the header. O2 sensor will have to be moved to the collector pipe right below the header. Also, the 85 exhaust does not mate up to these headers. It is smaller diameter pipe and does not line up. You will have to replace the x pipe with an 86 or newer pipe.

    Great look and fit

    January 31, 2014

    First off i havent rated the performance gain only because it's winter time and I'm doing a few more mods. Fitment of the headers wasn't a problem at all. The only problem i had on mine is cylinder number 4 plug wire boot will need to be modified. It rests against the header. As far as the steering shaft, i have at least 3/8" clearance. The headers came with everything except for gaskets. I ended up getting the BBK 1 5/8" gaskets. So far running it a bit in the shop i havent had any leaks. Unbolting the h-pipe will help the rest of the exhaust relax a bit for easier install to the converter flanges. Nice chrome finish brightened up the engine compartment and the welds looked good. So far i'm happy with them, just cant wait to drive it!!

    Well worth it

    January 25, 2014

    Awesome headers. They are a direct fit and with the right equipment fairly easy to install yourself. These headers were fairly priced an boy do they sound mean. I'm getting that deep sound and the instant change of power that I didn't notice before. I absolutely recommend this product

    Search no more! These Mac headers combined with the Mac prochamber and Mac cat back is the best upgrade you can put on your Fox. The complete exhaust system gives it the classic Fox sound. The headers fit great and come with a copper gasket to seal it up right. Get ARP header bolts or locking bolts to complete the install.

    Caught these MAC shortys on sale and ordered them. Some of the best looking headers fresh out of the box that I've seen. Came with all the gaskets and hardware needed for install. Nice clean fit, really no issues there. 1 5/8 inch tubing so its a very nice upgrade from the restrictive stock headers. This should be the 1st step in upgrading your exhaust system for your Pony. Dont just open up the nostrils (muffler & pipes), start with the lungs and let your beast breath freely!
