        Nice Pipes!

        Ceramic long tube headers in a Fox body - what's not to like?!?! Higher end RPM power gains and the exhaust sound over the equal length shorties they replaced are just why I bought these. Mechanics raved over the look, but no so much over the kinda difficult install, especially for the driver's side. Totally worth it!

        Superb sound!

        These headers are fantastic, produced the sound I was chasing and added a little more snort when the pedal hits the mat. Install time was about 6 hours, with a tons of assistance from a knowledgeable lead! Left side went in easy from below, right side was a little tight but, after taking off the throttle body and breaking the engine free for some gentle prying it slid in.

        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.

        BBK ALL DAY

        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

        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.

        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.

      Hello. These headers have a 3 inch collector right? If so how does a 2.5 inch BBK mid pipe fit? I want to make sure I'm buying the correct part.

      • The BBK 1-5/8 in. Ceramic Long Tube Headers have a 3" collector. They are designed to work with any of the four BBK mid pipes we offer which can be found in the "Buy Together" section. The leak-free ball and style socket can be found on the mid pipes as well, which allows for a proper connection.

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