    I’m Justin with 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 Bama 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 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.

    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.

    Hello so I currently have a Pypes offroad X pype for Long Tube Headers , Would this X pype fit this ceramic bbk long tube headers??


    • This BBK 1-5/8 in. Ceramic Long Tube Headers may fit, however, we always recommend utilize the same brand for the mid-pipes and headers for the best fitment due to differences in manufacturing tolerances from brand to brand. If you have the Pypes Off-Road X-pipe, item 20101, we would strongly recommend using the Pypes 1-5/8 in. Polished Long Tube Headers, item 20100.

    I currently have a bbk catted x pipe on my 2009 mustang gt is there any way I can fit this longtube headers even if it means cutting some of the x pipe or is it necessary to buy a shorty pipe and if I can cut the x pipe will it affect performance


    • The BBK 1-5/8 in. Ceramic Long Tube Headers will have revised exits over stock exhaust manifolds and shorty headers, and will require the shorty X pipe for proper fitment without drastic modification of the x pipe to correct length and inlet orientation.

    I'm considering long tube headers for my 2006 GT. I'm currently getting about 25mpg average , if I keep my foot out of it. Has anyone noticed a reduction in mileage after installing headers? Makes sense to me that it should improve.??


    • Typically, when installing these BBK long tube headers, you would not see an improvement in gas mileage being that you are increasing the flow of the exhaust. It is usually around the same MPG or slightly worse.

    So I'll be heading back home in a week from deployment. And I plan on getting the BBK long tube headers with the off-road X pipes on my 08 BULLITT as soon a I get home. (for installment purposes) Do I NEED to get aftermarket cat-backs//axle-back or is it fine like that?


    • You will not need an aftermarket axle-back or cat-back exhaust. I would recommend you purchase a matching BBK mid-pipe for proper fitment.

      Well worth it.

      I bought these headers for my 2007 Mustang GT; I thought it needed a more aggressive tone. Coupled with a BBK O/R X and SLP Loudmouths, these headers have made my car INSANELY loud, not to mention ridiculously aggressive. Great product at a great price. No complaints here, thanks AM.

      2010 Headers

      Just did the install on a 2010 gt. Did all the work myself and was not too bad just very tight if you do not have a car lift. Would say basic set of tools would not be a good idea for self install and motor must be raised and motor mounts come out to make it possible but other than that the product is amazing and sound is amazing along with catted "x". Do not recommend running this set up with SLP Loudmouths you will get a lot of exhaust pop when you let off the throttle but all in all i was happy.

      These are just amazing. I installed them with a BBK shorty x-pipe and magnaflow magnapack catback exhaust. The install was easy. They dont look like the picture and dont have the exhaust returns on them. The power difference is definitely noticeable and the car now sounds amazing!!!

      Big Improvement

      Finally had them installed, couple of things. When i opened the package, the headers were damaged at the flange side, bent in, during shipment i suppose, but that was repaired at the shop. The sound is awesome, however, when i kick the a/c on, and when the clutch engages on the compressor, i can hear a minor whistling sound inside the cab, Not sure the cause of it. Great product tho. I bought these along with off-road x-pipes, and also has a tune to it. Loving it, Thanks again AM, coming back for some more later.

      Excellent Mod to improve your stangs performance

      I recently installed these BBK headers with the catted shorty X on my 08 Shelby GT. I am very pleased with the quality and the end results. Overall installation time was about 6 hrs, no help, using a lift, definitely wouldn’t do it without one, but it could be done. I have plenty of mechanical exp. and used the customer submitted installation guide for reference only, I found that guide to be way more helpful/informative than the one BBK provided. I did run into the same thing that others have with one of the bolts not fitting in the hole due to the primary being to close, (passenger side upper bolt on the #6 cylinder in the firing order). I used a dremel and cut just enough off to allow it to fit and the problem was solved. This should be addressed by BBK with a shorter bolt for that specific hole. Also had to bend the catted X exhaust hangers down some because in mid 08 Ford stopped putting the hanger brackets on due to high NVH, previous years had a TSB. They would have contacted the transmission cross member with engine flex and caused a vibration if not bent or removed. There is added power just can’t tell you how much until I get it on the Dyno, I’ll update the review when I do get numbers. The sound is good, a little raspy for my taste but that can be changed with a different cat back later on, currently I have the FRPP M-5230-GTA’s that came stock on the Shelby GT. I also used the Bama 93 octane tune without issue, but a custom Dyno tune will get the full potential out of all the mods. Rest of mods include: FRPP hot rod cams; FRPP High rise intake; BBK 62mm TB; FRPP CAI. Overall I would recommend this product and American Muscle to others. Shipping was less than 24 hours from PA-VA, Thank you AM for great products, service, and prices.

      These long tube bbk ceramic headers were delivered promptly and they are gorgeous out of the box and look even better on my 'stang. performance is extremely noticeable and so is the sound specially with the bbk catted x pipe, it really purrs now and sounds utterly amazing. I'd recommend this to anyone. beware however it took me two whole days and i had a HORRIBLE vibration after the install but cost me 40 dollars to fix the hangers on the x-pipe had to be adjusted as they were touching part of my frame which was causing the vibration other than that AWESOME PRODUCT
