More Horsepower and Torque. Now you can improve the performance of your V6 Mustang with a set of PaceSetter Black Long Tube headers for power you can feel throughout the RPM band. These Long Tube headers when combined with a PaceSetter shorty mid pipe will greatly improve your Mustangs exhaust flow for an increase in horsepower, torque, and throttle response.

Durable Construction. Manufactured from 1-5/8" mandrel bent 16-gauge carbon steel tubing for strength and unrestricted airflow, these PaceSetter Long Tube Mustang Exhaust headers feature CNC-machined 3/8" thick header flanges for additional strength and an OEM fit.

Black Painted Finish. These PaceSetter Headers feature a standard black painted finish, which is used to protect the headers during storage and shipment, as well as providing an aggressive appearance to your engine bay. This is not a heat-resistant coating.

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.

Application. These PaceSetter Long Tube Headers are designed to fit the 2005 to 2010 Mustangs equipped with 4.0L V6 engine. These Long Tube headers will require the use of a shorty style PaceSetter Y-pipe for proper installation (See drop down option above).

Technical Note. This PaceSetter product is not legal for use in emission restrictive states.

I have a sort of a straight pipe dual exhaust I did not remove the catylac converter so the check engine light wouldn't turn on If I added these Would I have to take off the catylac converters?

  • Hi, These long tube headers will eliminate your catalytic converters.

I have a complete stick exhaust system. Will I have to end up changing it to a duel exhaust system or will it still work and sound great with the stock exhaust

TrustinG

  • This PaceSetter Black Long Tube Headers requires the use of the PaceSetter Offroad Y-Pipe (05-10 V6 w/ Long Tube Headers), Item 51059 for proper installation. With the use of the Y-pipe, you may utilize your stock catback exhaust and many aftermarket, single-exit exhausts.

I plan to order the pacesetter black long tube headers, the magnaflow dual competition exhaust, bbk gaskets and the O2 sensor extension kit. Is there anything else I need to make all this work correctly for the best performance or am I missing any parts required for the installation?

AnglerlifeO

  • With these headers, I would not choose the Magnaflow dual competition cat-back with it as that has a Y-pipe connection. You will want to look for something that has a dual mid-pipe connection to the long tube headers. I would recommend Pypes mid-muffler true dual exhaust item #20126. Other than that exhaust, you will need to retune your vehicle to make sure that you will not get your check engine light to come on with the new flow rate of the long tube headers.

I have a completely stock exhaust setup. Can I simply swap out the shorty headers and cats for these long tubes?

Andrew

  • This will be a direct swap from your stock shorty headers and the catalytic converters. This will attach right to the mid-pipe and may need some extra modification to ensure that it is installed correctly.

So I was thinking about purchasing these headers but wanted to know if lots of modifications have to be done, since I have straight pipes with x pipe. Wanted to know if anyone has put these on with no mufflers just straight pipe and if its worth it?

Mendoza1213

  • These headers are designed to bolt to the PaceSetter Offroad Y-Pipe (05-10 V6 w/ Long Tube Headers), item # 51059, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/pacesetter-orhpipe-0510v6.html). You may need to do some modifications in order for them to bolt to your x-pipe correctly.

    Long tube headers.

    I do like these headers. I had them installed with a true dual set of straight pipes and high flow cats, and of course a 91oct race tune from all the great folks over at BAMA Performance. The only down side is that the gaskets that come with these aren't the greatest, so I am getting bbk gaskets. And the paint, I don't understand why you would paint headers with regular paint, it burns right off when you install them and the smell lasts for about a week. But, I love the sound, it's very raspy and sounds more like a muscle car, and I did notice some mid range hp gain with these headers. Over all, I do like them, and I absolutely recommend them to any v6 owner looking to beef up their stang. But if you get these, it is advised that you get some O2 extendors and some new gaskets as well. Over all this is a great product, thanx again AM. You guys are awesome.

    PaceSetter Black LT Headers

    These headers gave my 06 stang a deeper sound and a little more pick up when i hit the gas! I didn't want to pay a kechanic to do it so i made it a weekend project with my dad. Took us a solid day because we had to do a little fabrication with the exhaust, but all and all it isn't the most difficult thing to do by yourself! The one thing I didn't like was how they didn't put high temp black paint on the headers, so the first couple times i drove it after installation the paint smelled pretty wrank burning off the pipes.....

    These long tubes are amazing, they will definitely wake up your v6 I had an x pipe installed also, theyou are an amazing product I recommend these if your trying to get a much louder stang, the install only took roughly an hour and a half,but seriously if your looking for a great set of headers the Pace Setter long tube headers are the way to go.

    Amazing bang for your buck!!

    For the price of these headers you can't beat it. They are made well. Just a FYI the black coating does indeed come off. I wrapped mine and combined it with the JBA catted H pipe and it sounds amazing. You will need the O2 extender one set for the upper 02 sensors and if you use your rear 02 sensor you will need 2 sets to reach to the rear bungs. Overall great product!!

    i agree with thiguy65, if your looking to get the most out of your v6 then get this product. after i installed the LT headers I've noticed a huge increase in performance. if your wondering what i was, then yes, the JBA Catted Shorty H-Pipe (05-10 GT) does fit!

    This product was worth it.

    If your looking for some serious gain in hp or torque, I would recommend getting this product. I got a 2009 v6 with pacesetter long tube headers, gt catted h pipe, and borla s-type catback. My exhaust sounds amazing and I havnt even got it tuned yet. Still saving up on that SF3 tuner, I already bought my JLT CAI cold air intake but havnt installed it yet cause a tuned was required. But get it, its worth it! Dont get that shorty y pipe, go for dual exhaust!!

    Great product

    I had local shop install and got a great deal. He had no problems fitting and installing. He did have to remove cats, if you want cats they have to be relocated. I would advise relocating them myself(I'm getting o2 extensions here at am to make it simple and easy). At the moment my car sounds absolutely terrible but that's because that cats are off and still have Flow master 40's on(which i hate btw). But i have herd a V6 with these same long tubes and cats with no muffler and it sounds amazing, will have same set up shortly. All together I do feel a gain in the mid power, will feel more with good tune. no cats are throwing things off for my car and it feels like it doesn't quite know what to do with the more open exhaust but again tune will fix that.

    Worth the effort!

    These headers are everything I hoped for! Great gains in Hp/Tq and sounds amazing. For the cost you cant go wrong. Install was a pain because of limited space but other than that its pretty strait forward. I got the high flow cats go with. Only downside is my pypes x-pipe did not line up properly anymore so i ended up having it bent a little and then welded in. If you are wondering how it sounds ive uploaded videos on Youtube under spartan1492. All in all very satisfied!

    Best bolt on Mod out there!!!

    So I bought these about 6 months ago with the intentions of putting them on that weekend. I've done just about every bolt on modification out there for my V6. Total installation time was about 5-6 hours and that was by myself. I bought this V6 as a repo car with 100k miles on it for 4 thousand bucks. I felt like a got a good deal, it was a piece of junk when I bought it. Thanks to places like American muscle I've turned into in a project car, I'm constantly turning heads everywhere and getting compliments almost everyday. I completed this entire project by myself, no help at all and I completed it on jacks. Prior to putting this in I had the true dual system installed about a month before which gave my v6 a bang for its buck but I wanted more and I knew freeing up those terrible manifolds might do the trick. So I followed the instructions and unbolted my h-pipe and removed my cats, didn't have to lift the engine or motor mounts, trust me I didn't have the right stuff to do that anyway lol. A couple of hand tools and patience and I had the new long tube headers on, I wiggled them down in through the engine bay, wasn't simple but with enough moving and wiggling it worked! Make sure you bolt on the EGR pipe before putting the driver side header on, this will make life a lot easier, and make sure you take it off before trying to pull down the old manifolds, that was the biggest problem I ran into. Keep in mind, I had to put the CATS back on which I replaced with smaller ones bc you can't reuse the stock cats, they are bent wrong for this setup, even with the cats "keeping it legal" its sounds crazy, I drove it around with open headers and I sounded like a drag car. My system sounds better then a 5.0, trust me, it's louder little to no drone and I can rip into the higher RPMS and turn heads on the interstate, it's scary but still a good daily driver! I love this website, I used to be a noob who couldn't change a lightbulb and now I've learned how to do tons of stuff! Thanks AM!

    I am very happy with my choice in going with the longtubes rather than the shorties. I was amazed at the mid range power gain from these, especially with the tune. I would recommend these to any v6 owner.

    Great sound

    Bought these around 5 months ago, me and my buddy installed them and the off road y-pipe in about 3 hours with a jack and some hand tools. The hardest part of the install was taking off the old cats. I'm currently running these headers, off road y pipe, cutout before flow master 40. With the cut open the car sounds awesome! And with the cut out close it's veryyyyy raspy. Three people asked me if I put the new 5.0 engine in. (But they're not the smartest people) Performance was decent. I bought it mostly for the sound not performance.

    Pacesetter Longtube Headers for 2005 V6 Mustang

    I can say that this product is amazing overall!! The only things that i can say improvement wise is that I was not sent enough of the wire splices for the O2 sensors. Also, the EGR tube port on the new headers did not provide enough room for me to properly screw the bolt on without scratching the headers.
