Free Up Horsepower and Torque. Replace those heavy and restrictive cast iron factory exhaust manifolds with a set of Pypes free flowing, lightweight, stainless steel shorty headers that will allow your GT to breath better than stock for more power. Durable Construction. Manufactured from 1-5/8" mandrel bent 304 stainless steel tubing for strength and improved airflow, these Pypes Shorty Mustang Exhaust headers feature a one piece 3/8" thick header flange for additional strength and an OEM fit. Pypes headers are then polished to a bright finish for impressive under hood styling.

Application. Designed as a direct bolt on, these Pypes Shorty Headers will bolt straight up in the stock location to the factory Mid-Pipe without any modifications on the 2005 to 2010 4.6L GT Mustang to improve exhaust flow and sound.

Technical Note: Check local ordinances to ensure that this Pypes product is legal for use in your state.

Will this work with pypes off road H-Pipe? I was considering buying new headers and a mid-pipe for my 2007 GT/CS. The car already had Bassani mufflers already on the car when I got it. I like the sound of the exhaust that results from the combination of the Pypes off road H-Pipe and the Bassani mufflers. I was wondering if the Pypes shorty headers would work with the off road H-pipe and if it would keep the old school rumble that results from the H-pipe.

  • As long as you keep an H-pipe, you will get the old school rumble. Your exhaust will get slightly louder though.

2008 Bullitt fit? I have a 2008 Bullitt with Pype bombs and pypes high flow cats but the stock H pipe. Will these headers still fit my setup? or will i need a new midpipe?

  • Sure! These shorty headers bolt into the factory location and you can use your stock mid-pipe or an aftermarket. Your current setup would be perfectly compatible!

  • Yes, it will get that blue-ish tone to it... It looks kind of cool. Although you won't see it due to how crammed everything is.

    I already had the Pypes Violator axle back kit installed. I finally ordered the Pypes off road mid pipes with "X" pipe ,and these headers. After paying to have these installed the exhaust note became extremley aggressive and very loud. Also I gained the ability to easily spin 3rd. Great product! Thanks AM.

    Got these on my 05' gt and arent a bad product, but I don have problems with the nuts coming loose on these repeatedly and disappearing. Tried double bolting since it gets to hot for lock tight. Thats the only other concern, these heat up and heat up fast.

    June 20, 2012

    First off I love the sound of these headers along with Pypes o/r X-pipe and Flowmaster axelbacks! Sounds like an animal! I do have a problem with my steering column rubbing and making it hard to turn so im gonna have to go back and lift the motor a tad bit but thats a quick fix! Cant wait for my next purchase from American Muscle!

    sound great hard install

    July 23, 2011

    so after 12 hours of trying to install these with my buddy i finally gave up with them complete minus a stud.....way too many leaks to name but after a trip to the shop and 150 bucks they sound awesome and i can feel the improvement on pick up. bottom line if you are a hobby mechanic like me just pay to have them put in.

    Pypes shorty headers

    July 02, 2011

    I ordered these to go along with my pipes o/r x-pipe and catback, "the beast" package-Before my car was obnoxiously loud and had a raspy sparatic sound. I WAS going to try to install it myself at a local shop on miramar mcas, funny thing is when I went there was another guy there trying to install shorty headers on his mustang. He was there for 2 full days and was in the process of removing his front axel. I asked him, "would you rather have just paid $300 for a professional install?" he said, "dude I'm thinking about towing it right now." soo I took that advice and went to another local shop and paid $300 for the professional install. It took them 6 hours and the said they had to lift the motor and remove the engine mounts. When I went to pick it up, and they started my car, a tear ran down my face cuz it sounded so good! It was deffiently quieter BUT it sounded so smooth and it just absolutly roared. When I drove it, I immediately noticed my first and second gears were shorter(cuz I was going faster). I don't care what anyone says about shorty headers not giving you power. It's complete BS, cuz I deffiently noticed a difference. All in all though, I'm very happy with the selection I made by going with pypes shorty headers. I'd recommend them for anyone, especially at the price they're at.... A really nice upgrade over stock.

    Love These Headers

    November 17, 2010

    I installed these headers at home in about 4 hours. What an improvement in exhaust flow and sound! I also installed a complete pypes M-80 mid muffler system with pype bomb resonators and off road x pipe. Installation was fairly easy due to the excellent fit of the pypes system. I recomend removing the motor mounts completely to allow for an unobstructed view of all of the mounting studs/nuts. I also recomend driving the car for a few days and checking for tightness. After I went over the nuts/studs the second time they were perfect. Simply put, these headers are outstanding for the price and increase in power!

    Sound sick and look great

    January 02, 2010

    These took me a while to get on but were well worth it. They look great, sound sick, and now my enginee revs much quicker. I can't wait to get my new race tune for them.

    Great product, horrible fit

    August 09, 2013

    I love the way these headers changed the tone of the exhaust. It finished up everything I had to give it that muscle car sound I was looking for. Only down fall which I was a little upset about was that the fit of these headers was horrible!! I read tons of reviews of everyone saying they didn't have any problems with them fitting properly but the shop I took it to had nothing but problems. I even tried taking to Lamotta and they turned me away saying they don't deal with anything pypes because they have nothing but problems with the way they fit. Overall the sounds great. Thanks again American Muscle
