Features

  • Long Tube Header Design

Description
More Horsepower and Torque. Now you can improve the performance of your 4.6L 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 1996 to 2004 Mustangs equipped with the SOHC 4.6L V8 engine, including the GT and Bullitt models. These Long Tube headers will require the use of a shorty style PaceSetter X-pipe for proper installation (See drop down option above).

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

Once they're installed you'll love them! But I had my Mustang guy install them with the matching Pacesetters midpipe. I have a tubular K so it wasn't as difficult as it may be but he ran into these issues: Broken ...

Will these fit a convertible with automatic transmission? The convertibles have the extra support underneath the engine and want to make sure that these headers would clear

    Deff worth it

    Headers were nice and fit well, I helped my friend put them on we both have a lot of mechanical skills so everything just went in with an X pipe In some hours also performance was badass you could feel the power even though we haven't tuned it deff need to buy some worth the money

    Great for the price

    Bought these headers along with the shorty x pipe. Installation wasn't bad and they sound awesome. I can totally feel the extra horsepower as well. As far as fitment they're fine but I couldn't use my egr with these headers which is no big deal I can delete the check engine light with a tuner. I also don't know why they come black because the paint burns off within a day or two of driving. For the price, these are overall GREAT A

    Longtubes worth the install pains!

    Once they're installed you'll love them! But I had my Mustang guy install them with the matching Pacesetters midpipe. I have a tubular K so it wasn't as difficult as it may be but he ran into these issues: Broken studs off in head, took two extractors and a good hour. Bending dipstick tube. Had to guess and tweak it off the motor. Then test fit. But once on and I purchased some slightly better clamps for the collectors, and the sound and extra 30 HP and tq from the butt-o-meter were worth the labor cost.

    pain in the butt but worth it

    Had these professionally installed, took about 14hrs, thank god I didn't charge me for all the hrs. Paired this with the pacesetter o/r xpipe and flowmaster 40's and OMG!! talk about smiling from ear to ear. Sounds awsome and pulls a lot harder. Would def by again

    You buy cheap you get cheap

    These longtube pacesetter headers had a horrible fit. I recently purchased these to replace my rusted out bbk longtubes due to a mean exhaust leak. I rather have kept the leak than put these on my stang! The egr valves do not line up one bit. They are a solid 1 1/2 inch off from each other. For now I have to plug my egr valve until I can get something fabricated. That is if I can find something in that size and thread to plug it. And if you aren't discouraged enough about these headers, the pacesetter techs aren't very helpful and don't have a custom service attitude. Don't waste your time or money. Buy a different brand.

    Headers have great sound!

    Overall Pacesetter made a good product at an affordable price. On my 2000 Roush they idle quiet but at WOT they scream. Great sound and no issues with fitment. I would suggest coating them in heat paint or heat tape. After 4 hours drive time the black coating was already peeling from the heat

    Bang for the Buck!!!

    If you don't care what finish if on your headers because you can't see them anyway....then these are for you! If you have a custom fabbed midpipe where you are going to weld together the exhaust anyways...then these are for you! If you don't feel the need to waste hundreds more on a possible 1 hp more difference....then buy these! Fit is perfect..no bending..no banging....no hitting with a hammer..went on like a glove..be sure to use OEM ford manifold gaskets...dont chance it and use the flimsy paper ones that comes with the headers. Put these on my 2001 Bullitt...good feelable gains in the top end. Great sound with my custom bent H pipe and mac catback.
