    I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and this is our breakdown of BBK’s Long tube ceramic headers for the 2005-2010 Mustang GT. Long tubes completely replace those ultra restrictive cast iron manifolds, which can really choke out the flow of exhaust. Adding a set of long tubes along with an aftermarket mid pipe and exhaust will make for a really free flowing setup that will free up some extra horsepower and torque. These headers from BBK are going to be pretty much middle of the road in terms of average price, figuring you have a company like PaceSetter on the lower side of things, and companies like JBA and Cook’s on the higher side of the spectrum. However, one of the things that will separate these headers from BBK from the competition is the ceramic coating. That ceramic coating will offer a couple of different benefits, first is performance, ceramic coatings dissipate heat a lot better than a stainless header, which will make for a slight performance edge, and will help keep the engine bay a little bit cooler as well, which is always a good thing. Second, these headers will offer a little bit more durability and longevity than a chrome plated header or a stainless header. The final benefit is going to be appearance. I know it’s not all that important since these headers aren’t completely visible from the engine bay, however that ceramic coating is going to keep that nice bright silver color throughout their life whereas a chrome or stainless header tends to change color as they heat cycle, which some people like, others may not. Another thing, this ceramic coating is going to be a lot easier to keep clean as well. Taking a closer look at the headers themselves, you’ll notice pretty good welds down here at the collector, as well as pre welded O2 sensor bungs. The headers also feature 1 and 5/8” mandrel bent tubing, which should really help that exhaust flow. Finally, you’ll notice this laser cut flanges for an OEM type fit, which won’t allow any leaking. Installing any set of long tube headers can be a little intense, so if you don’t think you have the mechanical know how to get this job done, then you might want to leave this one up to the shop. However if you are going to tackle the job, you’ll be happy to know that these headers do include all the hardware and necessary gaskets, but just leave yourself a full day, just to be safe. Keep in mind whenever you run a set of long tube headers like these BBKs, you will need to address your mid pipe. In this case, you will need to run a flanged end shorty mid pipe, just to get everything bolted up properly. BBK recommends running their shorty X-pipe, just for the best fitment, and for the best performance gains. So if you’re looking for a set of headers at a very fair price, that will offer all the performance of a set of long tubes, plus the added benefits of a ceramic coating, then these headers from BBK are definitely worth checking out.

    More Horsepower and Torque.   Improve the performance of your S197 Mustang with a set of BBK Long Tube Headers. These BBK ceramic coated headers will greatly improve your mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive factory manifolds and increase your Pony's horsepower and torque. Increases of 14 to 22 RWHP have been seen when installed with a BBK shorty X pipe.

    Silver Ceramic Coating. These Long Tube Headers are completed in BBK's Polished Silver Ceramic Coating that not only looks great, but reduce under hood temperatures to help increase horsepower and extend the life of the headers. Ceramic Coated headers will long out last both chrome plated and polished headers.

    Quality Construction.   BBK Long Tube Exhaust headers are manufactured from 1 5/8" CNC mandrel bent tubing for unrestricted airflow. And feature one piece laser cut 3/8" header flanges for added strength, leak-free performance and OEM fit. These headers are then completed in a polished ceramic finish for good looks and to lower under hood temperatures.

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

    Application. These Ceramic Long Tube Headers are designed to fit the manual and automatic transmissions 2005-2010 GT Mustangs. BBK long tube headers require a flanged end shorty midpipe in order to function properly. BBK recommends using a BBK shorty X-Pipe for the best performance gains (see drop down option above).

    Technical notes. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only. A BBK shorty Mid Pipe are required for installation.

        Over Axle Pipe Unfortunately my first upgrade was just the axle back mufflers...so no piping up to the cats. I just ordered the Long tube headers and Catted shortys. I guess this will connect to my stock over axle piping connecting to my flowmasters. Will this stock piping negate the effects of the headers? Where can I order the over axle piping?

        • I put BBK long tube headers and catted X pipe on my car as well. The catted X pipe bolted directly to the existing exhaust so no additional changes were needed.

        Is the ceramic coating on both the outside and inside of these headers?

        • Just the outside of these headers will be coated with BBK's Polished Silver Ceramic Coating.

        I'm thinking about getting these bbk headers just wondering if anyone had problems with breaking the manifold studs

        • When installing the BBK 1-5/8 in. Ceramic Long Tube Headers, care should be taken with removing the studs. It is not common to break studs, but it is common. We do recommend soaking the studs in PB Blaster, or an equivalent penetrating oil to ensure the studs and nuts come out smoothly.

        I have the Corsa cut and clamp X-pipe (item #100504) on my 2007 manual GT. Will these headers fit that X pipe? If not which long tubes will fit? I don’t want to change the Corsa out, I love the tone of it with my Borla ATAK axle-back.

        • For use with long tubes you would need the specific long tube x pipe. For use with the BBK 1-5/8 in. Ceramic Long Tube Headers you would need the BBK X-pipe for long tubes to ensure it matches up correctly. We do not offer long tubes that would be compatible with the Corsa cut and clamp X-pipe.

            Knew I should have gotten kooks

            First time buying a bbk product and probably my last.. both the x pipe and headers came scraped and the x pipe was slightly dented...poor packaging. The passenger header design is poor..it won’t allow room for a bolt to squeeze through. You are supposed to reuse the stud that originally came on the car but mine came out during removing the exhaust manifold and wouldn’t go back in. So my header currently is missing a bolt till I can find a small bolt that will fit. Exhaust note is deeper so that’s cool.

            Longtubes

            I own a 2010 GT and had shorty bbk Shorty's at first...finally did the switch to longtube...woke the car up even more, much more pulled and sounds great. Shorty's do make power but longtubes really give a big boost in power.

            it was a well thought out product. i didnt even have to take my steering column out of the way. but I also had the motor jacked up and tweaked to the left. it fit right around my column with out having to damage the pipes.

            AMAZING Product

            The second i drove out of the shop with these Ceramic BBK long tubes , the car was noticeably more raspy and I love that sound. I used my custom Bama BBK longtube tune and when I did my first pull, I IMMEDIATELY felt the gains in horsepower and saw my speedometer numbers increase a lot faster. If you are going to get long tube headers, DEFINITELY get Ceramic. They last longer and keep things cooler.

            I couldnt be happier. literally dont think the sound could be any better. i paired this with bbk off road x pipe and have bassani axle backs. it sounds AMAZING. also installed 4.10 gears at same time so hard to tell what is giving the performance but she performs!!!!! thats for sure.

            Quality welds

            Have not installed yet because I can decide if I want the carted xpipe or off road x. Reason being I already have an slp loudmouth muffler delete and I have heard it is to loud with longtube and no cats. I have looked these headers up and down and I am very pleased with the quality of the welds and the fact they were on my doorstep in 2 days. Thanks AM, I will keep you posted.
