Will these headers fit on my gt40 heads?


  • Hello! They should fit the GT40, GT40X and GT40Y but they wont fit the GT40P heads due to their goofy plug location.

    Very Dissapointed

    I was very Disappointed Welds on the ID was Horrible they could at least Deburr or Grind excess Weld before getting Ceramic Coating, A lot of blemishes on the Ceramic Coating.

    install tricky, needs to be easier

    Sounds great, JUST installed them so they are leaking a bit until I retighten the bolts. My main thing was that the engine lifting brackets wouldn't fit on there with the bolts provided or the ARP I bought. The engine oil dipstick bracket had to be trimmed to fit. Advice- lift the engine on the passenger side, on the side of the oil pan (first I lifted from the oil pan and bent it); think of a smog delete kit or something with the smog bc it won't connect to the o/r mid pipe; U need short sockets to tighten the bolts maybe even the breaking extension. I have a mechanic shop so it was easy I had all equipment. If I didn't I would pay to get them installed.

    Excellent Power Gains

    These headers are a great buy. Power gains were definitely noticeable. Not to hard to install. The drivers side goes in from the bottom with lifting engine. Passenger side, I had to unbolt the passenger side mount only and lift the engine a couple inches. The only thing I modified on the headers were the welds inside of the flanges which were a restriction. This only took an hour to do both with a grinder with metal burr bit. My suggestion would be to buy the copper gaskets and grade 8 locking bolts (or whatever they are called) as I have read that this gasket/bolt setup is stout and did not want to do this job twice. I only wish AM had these gaskets as I like to purchase all my stuff from them-wink wink AM ;).

    Good Fit, Nice Coating

    Headers fit nicely and leave plenty of room for the clutch cable (unlike my last set). They do come with header gaskets and small head bolts (like ARPs) since the what's in the box description says left and right header and does not indicate there are gaskets or bolts I ordered them separately, they were in the box do DON'T DO WHAT I DID.

    I ordered the headers and received them in a few days. When I opened the box I was amazed by the ceramic finish they had. All of the hardware was included as well. I would recommend buying these headers over the cheaper ones. They are worth it. My car sounds a lot better with long tubes over shorties. Thanks a.m. I’ll be ordering all my other add on goodies in the future though a.m

    BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers

    I was installing a new top end on the motor and decided to add the long tube headers. Even with the heads off the car you still have to raise the passenger side of the engine to allow the header to line up properly. The product and finish looked great. Haven't ran the car yet to rate the performance gain.
