        Nice quality overall.

        Fit was snug for sure. Had to Jack engine up to get them in. They also required a dent to be made where the steering shaft rubbed on my Lincoln Mark VII. Overall maybe not worth the effort over unequals but a Nicky made product for sure.

        The headers a straight forward install. In the last week I did have one of the small headed bolts fall out, still no exhaust leaks tho.

        Very nice! Had them installed and the guy struggled a bit but the end result is just what I wanted. There's a little boost in performance overall and the sound is awesome in conjunction with my SLP exhaust.

        Best around

        These are the best shorty headers around. They're a bit big and it's hard to fit them in but once they're in place everything's really great. Can't say much for how it changes sound because I got a new midpipe and cat back but my setup is very deep and backfires in wicked crackles.

        BBK Ceramic Headers

        Purchased these headers to replace the factory headers on 93 Mustang. I am no mechanic by any means, however, I did finally get these headers to line up and bolt on with relative ease after placing a jack under the motor and lifting the engine up a couple of inches. After lifting the engine up the headers went on relatively smooth. I enjoyed the project and defiantly enjoy the sound and performance. Purchasing and shipping from American Muscle was simple and fast. Thanks.

        Great looking headers

        These headers (BBK equal length ceramic coated) fit up with little trouble. There was a bit of interference with the steering shaft on the left side, which was easily cured by installing new motor mounts; so I do not fault the headers for that problem. These parts lend a very smart appearance to the engine bay. I do not yet have an opinion relative to any performance improvements, but I can say that I am not sorry that I spent the money on these headers.
