    Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I'm going to be taking a closer look at BBK's long tube headers, available in either ceramic or chrome for all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. Simply put, long tube headers are designed to completely replace your restrictive factory manifolds, which can really choke out the flow of exhaust. Long tube headers paired with an aftermarket Mid Pipe and exhaust will make for a very free-flowing setup that should give you a nice bump in both power and sound. As far as price is concerned, you'll find these long tubes from BBK to be right in the middle of the road. Now as far as construction is concerned, you'll see some slight similarities with the BBK and the Pype's long tube headers. They both share Mandrel-bent long straight runners, which is going to be great for top-end power, however the BBK features a 1-and-3/4 inch Mandrel-bent tubing, whereas the Pype's offer a 1-and-5/8ths inch Mandrel bent tubing, so you are getting larger diameter tubing with the BBK and the option to go with the ceramic coating as well. That ceramic coating is going to offer a couple of different benefits, first of which is performance. Ceramic dissipates heat a lot better than a raw stainless or chrome-plated header, so it's going to have a slight edge performance-wise, and should help keep under-the-hood temps down as well. Now the chrome option will be less expensive, and it won't dissipate heat quite as well as a ceramic coating, but one thing's for sure, that chrome finish is really going to pop under the hood. In addition to the different finish options available with the BBK headers, you'll also enjoy a perfect fit, thanks to the laser-cut flanges and quality welds that will help prevent any premature failure down the road. Installing any set of long tube headers can be a little intense, so if you don't think you have the mechanical skills to get the job done, then I would leave this one up to the professionals. However, if you are going to tackle the job, just leave yourself a full day, just to be safe. Keep in mind, whenever you run a set of long tubes like these BBKs, you will need to address your Mid Pipe. In this case, you'll need to run a flanged and shorty Mid Pipe to get everything bolted up properly. Now BBK recommends their shorty X-Pipe just for best fit and performance gains. So if you're looking for a quality set of long tubes with a number of different benefits and the option of a chrome or ceramic finish, you might want to check out these long tubes from BBK for your coyote Mustang.

    More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the performance of your 5.0L Coyote Engine with a set of BBK Long Tube Headers. These BBK Ceramic Coated Headers will greatly improve your mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive stock manifolds and increase your Pony's horsepower and torque. Significant increases in rear wheel horsepower have been seen when installed with a matching BBK Shorty X pipe or Midpipe Adapter.

    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 1-3/4" 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.

    Additional Required S550 Upgrades. Installation of these BBK Long Tube Headers on a 2015-2017 S550 Mustang will require the use of a set of BBK Long Tube Header Adapter Mid-Pipes part# 1816 or 18160 and an O2 Extension Harnesses and Hardware Kit part# 16332. Please see options listed above.

    Application. These BBK 1-3/4" Ceramic Coated Long Tube Headers are specifically designed to fit the 2011-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the Coyote 4 valve 5.0L V8 engine.

    Application Note. BBK Long Tube Headers require the use of a BBK Shorty Midpipe, part# 1655 or 1658, for 2011-2014 GT or the BBK Long Tube Header Adapter Mid-Pipes part# 1816 or 18160, for the 2015-2017 GT for proper installation.These Headers are intended for left hand drive applications only.

    Technical notes. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only.

    I am debating on getting these and a catted mid pipe, but am worried about NJ state inspection. Will it pass with this?

    piezan76

    • We do apologize but each state will have their own inspection rules. Generally, the rule of thumb is if it has cats you are okay with emissions. However, you will need to check with your local inspections center to see if these will pass your state's laws.

    I have been doing some research on the BBK Long tubes and I'm trying to figure out if these will hang below the frame rails? Some say yes and some say no. I'm wondering if they do - what is involved in tucking these back up?

    RyanN

    • The BBK 1-3/4 in. Ceramic Long Tube Headers will hang low. Unfortunately this is a part of their design, and cannot be changed. A view of how they sit installed is linked below. https://acdn.americanmuscle.com/i/20140701120146_1010.jpg

    WHATS the difference between the mid pipe adapter and the catted mid pipe adapter? I am curious and wanting to know because I see a price difference. What’s are the pros and cons from both adapters ?

    JoseC

    • The difference between the off road mid pipe and the catted mid pipe would be the catalytic converter. The catted mid-pipe would come with high flows catalytic converter that will allow more air to pass through the exhaust than what an OEM catalytic converter would do. Some states will allow these to be put on, and other will not allow them to pass emissions on an inspection. The off road mid pipe does not come with any catalytic converters on the vehicle, and in most states an off road mid pipe could fail the inspection.

      BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers

      I took these to a local shop to have them installed. I called 5 different places and only 2 were willing to tackle the job, yep, that's how difficult it is to do. So for those of you thinking about tackeling this task yourself make sure you are an expert mechanic because from what the shop owner told me he will never take a job like this again. Now for the review, all I have to say is I can't believe the power gains from these things. It is absolutely ridiculous. I am going to have to buy new tires because my car is spinning through 3 gears and gets sideways NO PROBLEM! Zero to 60 seems like less than 4 seconds and I'm not exaggerating. I was thinking about putting a turbo on my car this summer but I'm starting to wonder whether I need it now. The sound is unbelievable though I did put the off road X pipe which helps dramatically. This is the single most important bolt on you could possibly want for your car! Couldn't have been happier. FYI until you tune the car your check engine light will stay on so don't freak out when you see it. I can't wait until I get my tune, no telling what kind of results I will have. Get these as soon as you financially can, IT'S WORTH IT!!

      Mandatory Mod

      The 9 hours it took me to install these headers and off road x pipe were well worth it. They sound great and the power gains were felt instantly! I highly recommend these headers to anyone looking to Mod their new 5.0. The power gains will put butterflies in your stomach during full acceleration, especially when combined with a JLT CAI, BMR lowering springs and a set of 4:10's. Now all I need to do is beef up my rear suspension so I can hook up during full acceleration. Thanks agan AM.

It took removing the battery box, the right motor mount and steering nuckel and starter. By the way I am 60 years old and I did on jack stands. I put the X pipe at the same time. Had fun

      wasn't quite prepared for the power increase.you can really feel better torque and seat of pants feel right at the bottom end and all the way through the power band. also used the bbk off road x-pipe at the time of installation.plan on at least a full day for install and a lift would be advised, but well worth the time and effort for the power increase !

      Excellent Headers

      I Purchased these headers with the BBK Off Road X Pipe, I had a shop install them, cost $650.00 Pretty good Price I Believe. I do suggest go also purchase Item #64075 (02 Sensors). After a Tune the check engine light was still on. I could be wrong but in my case the stock 02 sensors couldn't handle the difference of the headers. ( But if your there might as well change them anyway) After adding the new 02 sensors Light went out and no issues. Also added Item #384126 KandN Series 69 Typhoon Air Intake (11-14 GT). She Screams Now, and Has Long Legs, Amazing Power Difference. If your a power nut like me I would get the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner and the free tunes for life. What a difference in the power, gas mileage roughly 14MPG after all complete and tuned.

      They absolutely work! Power and Reduction of Under Hood Heat

      Ok here's the deal! I installed these BBK Ceramic headers along with the BBK Cat-less mid pipe, which by the way connects to the factory system at a 2 1/4" pipe reduction, which I had an exhaust shop change it to a 3" X pipe. First make sure you have a muffler that is not crazy loud. I had a roush axle back and with the headers it sounded like 10 Harley Davidsons revving. I quickly changed to the 5" Magnaflow Street Mufflers to quiet it down. There is a definitive gain in power from low rpm but very noticeable at the higher rpm range as the car still wants to keep pulling. The car seems snappier and more responsive at throttle. Under hood temp is noticeably lower as my garage is not as hot when I pull in and park the car. They are noisy as you will hear the exhaust pulses through the headers, like a ticking noise, at first I thought the headers were leaking exhaust but not the case. The car sounds mean and you will get everyone that will want to race you, but with my 90mm BBK throttle body, Steeda CAI, GT350 Intake Manifold, Lund Racing Tune, BBK Ceramic Headers, Cat less 3" Exhaust Set up, Good Luck! I keep my car NA and use it as a daily driver here in Florida.

      BBK's Ceramic Long Tube headers have been the best purchase so far. I felt the power change instantly. My mustang sounds MEAN!! I will suggest getting a shop to install them. I tackled this job along with a friend of mine, neither one of us hand experience or the knowledge of installing headers. The instructions came in handy but still took me two days to get them installed. However, i will say that the blood and sweat was worth it all!!

      BBK Headers perform great

      I bought the BBK long tube headers and BBK catted shorty X-pipe to make the car louder and provide it with more power and they did just that. I noticed a big increase in the way it sounds from idle-WOT and an increase in power. They will take about a day to take off the old exhaust manifolds and install the long tube headers but the are well worth it. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it.

      THINK TWICE BEFORE PUTTING THEM ON

      I HAD THESE INSTALLED BY A SHOP THAT SPECIALIZES IN INSTALLING HEADERS ON MY 2011 MUSTANG GT AND HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH CHECK ENGINE CODES. FIRST IT WAS THE CODE BECAUSE OF THE HIGH FLOW CATS. I GOT A TUNE DONE AND IT WORKED FINE FOR 3 DAYS, NOW I'M GETTING ALL KINDS OF CODES FROM 02 SENSOR TO MISFIRES. IT'S GOTTEN SO BAD THAT IF I CAN'T GET IT STRAIGHTENED OUT SOON, I'M GOING TO HAVE THE FACTORY EXHAUST PUT BACK ON THE CAR, AND THEN, SELL IT.

      Obnoxious

      Took me and a friend about a day and a half on some ramps and jack stands. I recommend using a lift to make the job easier. Be prepared for a lot of cussing and bleeding as most of the bolts are impossible to get to. But after its all done, it's worth it. The performance gain and sound is amazing. I also got the BBK shorty xpipes and have Roush axle backs. Cold starts are ridiculously loud and after 3k, the car just screams. Highly recommend.

      Sounds great.

      After install it was a totally different car. Paired with bbk off road x pipe and roush axlebacks and it sounded like a mustang should. Giving it 4 stars because shortly after I've got a CEL for up stream sensor for 02. Swap it to the driver side and the code followed. Replaced with 3 Motorcraft 02 sensors and still won't go away. The symptoms of a bad 02 sensor are present. Poor fuel, sometimes hesitates at lower rpms. Etc

      BBK Ceramic Headers

      Great headers for the money spent, BBK is an all time favorite for most mustang owners and gives the iconic V8 sound everyone looks for. Catless is quite loud in my opinion so I put Magnaflow original 40's and sounds great with the X-pipe and shop install was 7.5 hours and just under 950 dollars. The fitment was perfect but under the car they hang a little lower than the frame so if you plan on lowering your car be careful because they'll scrape over big speed bumps or high driveways.

      Overall great quality for the money!

      The headers installed and fit exactly as advertised. Install took a total of 13 hours on jack stands in the garage, I contemplated using a lift, but don't know how much time it would have actually saved me as I could access both the top and bottom bolts from the jack stands. The install was not actually difficult, just tedious work. As far as performance, I can definitely feel an increase in power, but it is more like a noticeable shift in the torque curve. My car has always pulled pretty hard, but it is almost scary when you drop the throttle at around 2500 RPMS...the car just comes to life and screams! Highly recommended for the cost.

      Get these and save some money... Fitment was perfect, power gains were good after 3k and the sound.... Oh my.... its very loud especially with BBK off-road x-pipe and MBRP race cat-back !!! It drones pretty bad but that's due to my mufflers.... It also has not thrown engine code after 160 miles either :-) Shop charged me 900$ for my 14 and my buddy 600$ for his 15 which is because the 14 is so much more difficult to install....
