    More Horsepower And Torque. Improve the power and performance of your 5.0L coyote S550 Mustang with an American Racing Headers Off-road 1-7/8" Long Tube Header and X-Pipe Bottle-Neck Eliminator System. These American Racing Headers and X-Pipe will considerably increase your GT Mustangs exhaust flow, when compared to the restrictive factory manifolds and resonator Mid Pipe, for a significant improvement in rear wheel horsepower and torque.

    Race Car Growl. The included X-Pipe not only eliminates the factory resonator to help increase power, but it also adds a loud raspy, race car growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

    Quality Construction. American Racing Headers are manufactured in the USA from mandrel-bent 1-7/8" diameter 304 stainless steel tubing that merges into 3" collectors with scavenger spikes for superior exhaust flow. These long tube headers feature a one piece 3/8" header flange for additional strength, leak-free performance and an OEM style fit.

    Required Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that these Long Tube Headers have to offer, AmericanMuscle highly recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

    Cut & Clamp Installation. American Racing Headers designed their 3" Bottle-Neck Eliminator System to work in conjunction with most aftermarket 3" catbacks to eliminate the 3" to 2.5" step down restriction created by other 3 inch exhaust systems. Installation will require cutting and clamping the aftermarket 3" catback to fit into the included Mid Pipe. Clamps and detailed instructions are provided.

    Application. This American Racing Headers 1-7/8 x 3 in. Off-road Long Tube Header with X-Pipe Bottle-Neck Eliminator System is designed to fit both Fastback and Convertible 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine. Requires the use a 3" aftermarket catback exhaust for proper installation.

    Technical Notes. Long tube headers are not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; they are intended for off road use only.These Headers are intended for left hand drive applications only.

    Ask a Question

    Will these eliminate the x/pipe on a magnaflow competition cat back, or would the system end up with a double x-pipe. I see there is cutting involved. Is that before or after the magnaflow x-pipe?


    • Hey William, These would replace your existing x-pipe by cutting it out, and whats left of the catback is what would then attach to the headers.

    Hey I have the Corsa Extreme car back with double helix x pipe will this bolt right up? Essentially is this the correct 1 7/8” system with the least install issues for my setup ?


    • The American Racing Headers 1-7/8 in. Long Tube Off-Road Headers w/ X-Pipe already comes with an x-pipe so we cannot guarantee proper fitment with any other mid-pipes. It will also work with any 3" aftermarket cat-back system.

    Will these pair right up with the Roush axle backs or would i need to add extra pipe for a true 3 inch system?


    • The American Racing Headers Long Tube Off-road Headers w/ X-Pipe is designed specifically to be used in conjunction with a full 3" catback exhaust. This will require the piping from the end of the x to the axleback.
