            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.

            Foxbody resto

            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.

            Makes 'er snort

            These headers are pretty awesome, they are a pain to get in but totally worth it. Made my Mustang snort like a wild beast sounds fantastic, however the steering arm rubs on them slightly and i can feel lots of vibration in my steering wheel as a result but other than that a good buy.

            A perfomance gain with emissions compliance

            Looking to replace the long tubes to get inspection sticker, but wanted to keep the performance as well.

            Perfect Fit

            these bbk shorty headers were a bit of a surprise. I expected fitment problems in my 93 because of steering components, that was not the case. these headers not only fit with very few changes under the hood, the sound is nothing short of amazing and they just give my 5.0 a wider more aggressive look. oh, and the 15 rwhp gain doesn't hurt either
