    Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my brief overview of BBK's long-tube headers available in ceramic or chrome, fitting all 2011 and newer V6 Mustangs. Simply put, long tube headers have been designed to replace your restrictive factory manifolds, which can really choke out the flow of exhaust. A set of long tubes paired with an aftermarket Mid Pipe and exhaust, will make for a very free-flowing exhaust setup, which can give you a nice bump in power, as well as make for one mean-sounding exhaust note. As far as price, these long tubes from BBK are an extremely reasonable option when it comes aftermarket long tubes available for the late model 3.7 L V6. Taking a closer look, these headers feature 1-in-3/4 inch mandrel-bent tubing, quality welds throughout, and laser cut flanges for an OEM-like fit. Now as I mentioned earlier, you do have the option of picking these headers up in a chrome finish, or a ceramic finish. So what are the differences between the two finishes? Well, as you can see, the chrome option are a little brighter initially, but that's going to change as these headers heat-cycle, eventually turning that bright silver into a dark copper color. On the other hand, the ceramic options are going to remain that bright silver color throughout their lifespan. Secondly, that ceramic coating is going to be slightly better at reducing underhood temps, which is very important for performance. Now those added benefits do come with a price as ceramic coated headers are typically more expensive than a chrome or stainless option. Doing the install on any set of long tubes can be a little intense, so it's best to set aside a full day or weekend just to tackle the job. Now, you might not need it, but it's always good to be prepared. Now again, if you don't feel confident enough to tackle this install, then don't hesitate to give your local shop a call, they should be able to help you out. 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 will need to run a flanged, and shorty Mid Pipe, just to get everything installed correctly, now BBK recommends their Shorty X-Pipe for the best fitment and performance gains. In the end, what you can expect from using these long tubes from BBK is a considerable bump in both power and sound, all at a very fair price. So be sure to check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the performance of your 3.7L Ti-VCT 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.

    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 custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

    Additional Required S197 Upgrades. Installation of these BBK Long Tube Headers on a 2011-2014 S197 V6 Mustang will require the use of a BBK Shorty Mid-Pipe, part# 1461 or 1462 for proper installation.

    Additional Required S550 Upgrades. Installation of these BBK Long Tube Headers on a 2015-2017 S550 V6 Mustang will require the use of a BBK Shorty Mid-Pipe, part# 1465 or 14650, and a Front O2 Wire Harness Extension, part #1119, for proper installation.

    Application. These BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers are specifically designed to fit the 2011-2017 Mustangs equipped with the 3.7L V6 engine.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.

    Will it fit? Planning to buy these long tube and also Xpipe. . But I do have installed 2011-2012 Mustang V6 3.7L MagnaFlow Cat-back Exhaust (Street) Do i need to cut some tube off? Also I dont need to do anytunes? Thanks

    • Yes you need a tune thers so much air going through the exhaust it will throw off the computer. I also have the magna flow quad tip exhaust and everything fit mine just right this will make your exhaust deeper and up your horsepower big time.

    Hi I have a 2015 Mustang v6 with a borla atak axle back with a Flowmaster 2.25 in. Scavenger Series Resonator Delete X-Pipe. Will the bbk ceramic long tube headers fit with the exhaust system I have. If not which headers is recommended for my vehicle.

    • These headers would work with your axle back no problem, however, the X-pipe you have would need to be replaced with the BBK shorty mid-pipe.

    Is it required to have an xpipe to have these installed or will the stock pipes be ok?

    • The stockpipes will not fit these. You will need an aftermarket midpipe in order to fit the BBK ceramic long tube headers.

      Great mod but missing something

      It took about 4 hours to take off the factory headers and install the BBK Long Tube Headers with the H-Pipe with some friends. Pro tip, lube the nuts holding the OEM headers. I did it the morning of and didn't have any problems but, it might have been easier if I had the night before. Oh and the studs in the engine block tend to come out. Put them back first before putting the headers and nuts on. Like tried and true fashion, I left the OEM cat-back disconnected and started the car with the headers and h-pipe installed (with the sensors in and everything). Man, did it sound great. Although, once I clamped the factory cat-back on, that's where I noticed a difference in sound. upon startup, I noticed it was great at idle and cold starts but, get up above 4k rpm; welcome to rasp-ville. It's not even a classy kind of rasp, very hollow sounding tin can (I blame the OEM suitcase resonator). I ordered a cat-back so fast after that. Other than that, I've put 400 clicks on the headers and no check engine light or anything. Will re-tighten everything after the 700 kilometer mark. 10/10 would recommend.

      Very nice love the looks and sound of my car now worth the money if looking for a louder rumble installed with the catted H pipe resinator delete X pipe and flowmaster axle back exhaust sounds fantastic. But the bad part is now i have DTCodes for sensors precat and American muscle and American muscle tunes don't tell you they can't help you because it emission codes now i have a 2016 mustang that throws codes every 40-50 miles and now my remote start and few other options won't work NOT VERY HAPPY!!!!

      They work

      not as easy install as you may think. all the bottom flange nuts have to be tightened by hand and the passenger rear from under the car. Also make sure to try the nuts on the flange studs, somehow one was double threaded and had to be re-tapped. check after a few days of heat cycling and re-tighten everything. otherwise the quality seems to be decent. I have yet to determine if the headers or x-pipe are causing a tinny buzzing sound at a certain rpm. I thinking the clips on the x-pipe to exhaust couplers may be causing it and need to be cut off.

      BBK long tube headers

      Incredible! I had roush axlebacks. Just wasn't enough sound wise for me,so I purchased this with the off-road x-pipe and it sounds awesome now. Installation was simple, was time consuming at first but once you get the hang of it,it makes sense. If you want a very loud car that will turn heads, get this with an off-road x-pipe and roush axlebacks.

      If they fail your out your money

      Bought these in Sept 2016 when they arrived the gaskets where for a 5.7 hemi not a 3.7 ford less then a month after installed (buy a shop) a code p219b air fuel imbalance bank 2 appeared . Checked fuel system, for vacuum leaks , vvt since it's egr valve less, did a power balance test turning injectors and then spark to each individual cylinder still no fix. Contacted Bama to get tunes again just in case but that didn't work. Then installed a upstream o2 to rule out variables no change . There is a exhaust leak at the collector between the headers and catted xpipe. Emailed bbk since I still have warranty they will not replace and American muscle only carries a 30 day . So all in all out 1400 usd on a product that is now causing g my car to sputter at idle and consume more fuel . I guess they will look nice in the garbage

      BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers

      I recommend these headers to any V6 owner that is looking for a good boost in power and an increase in volume. These headers really changed the car. Combined with the BBK off-road X-pipe and the Roush Axle-Backs, my car definitely turns heads. I also like the ceramic coating because it does not change colors like the regular stainless headers do.

      Great parts for excellent gains!

      I have a 2012 v6. Slowly but surely I did one part at a time. The bbk blackout series CAI, the SR performance throttlebody spacer, and now these headers combined with the bbk catted midpipes, and a bama 93 octane race tune. All these parts have made my car more reactive, more responsive, and more powerful than ever before. I'd definitely recommend these for the amazing quality in sound and all the gains in horsepower and torque at the top end!

      Awesome!

      I installed these with an off road x pipe and RTR tactical axle backs and so far they are amazing. This setup is very very loud even after about 250 miles of break in time. The install was easy I did it on a Sunday in about 4 hours with 2 friends on jack stands only one of of the three of us has real wrenching experience. The fit was awesome, there were two issues one positive the o2 sensor extensions that came with the headers and the off road x pipe from bbk were plug and play there was no soldering or cutting required, contrary to the only install guide i found on am. Don't get me wrong it was a excellent guide by the way. The mufflers took a little extra finesse than I expected as the stock hangers fit but needed a little bending and prying to get them out the back of the rear bumper at the same angle and depth. All in all I only drive my car on weekends and love the sound and power combined with my other mods it is noticeable. I think if it were a daily driver I may have opted for of a less aggressive setup. I do have a bit more drone on the freeway but below 3500 rpms it is deep and as close to v8 sounding as you could ever get with a six.

      My v6 now sounds amazing, i can feel how it adds power to the car even though I'm still missing a good tune. Only thing is that the O2 sensors extensions don't fit models 2015 . So i ended up having to wait 2 more days and had to pay $100 bucks more. Other than that the car sounds amazing and really loud.

      Head over heels over my Headers!

      These BBK Ceramic Long Tube Headers are DYNAMITE! In other words... A Real Blast! I am not the least bit disappointed. Coupled with the BBK Catted X-Pipe, and Borla exhaust, my 3.7 finally feels and sounds like a real muscle car. Of course my KandN CAI and BBK 73mm throttle body don't hurt the performance either. Next, a BAMA Tune and I will be set for a while. This Mustang convertible was a compromise with my wife to give up my lifetime riding Harley's, so I could still be in the wind. But until I did the exhaust it just didn't have the rumble in the pipes that I have missed. Now I am truly happy. Love BBK products.

      Buy another Brand

      I installed the ceramic coated long tubes about 10 months ago, However, after 2 months I stored the car indoors for winter, (5 months) 3 months later the headers are rusting and look terrible (spotty, not even rusting uniformly). I spoke with BBK and they told me it must be my environment and said I should've bought stainless headers. My car is a 2014 and has many chrome parts including a supercharger that was installed when car was new. All look great and show no rust. BBK does not stand behind their product.

      Good fit, arrived damaged.

      This product is an excellent fit. Expect four hours of work with two people. The flange that connects to the mid pipe was damaged to the point where exhaust leak would have occurred. Had to take vise grips to bend the flange back. Luckily no leaks so far. Sounds really nice with off-road x pipe and stock cat back. Can feel a tad bit more low end torque.

      BBK has horrible quality control

      Ordered a set of these headers and when I received them, the ends were dented (where they connect to the H pipe). This was not AM's fault, as they just shipped what BBK sent them. Returned the set and AM sent a new set. These were dented even worse. I was concerned about leaks, so I wanted to send them back a 2nd time. Unfortunately, I had to pay the shop to fix this set because the 3rd set couldnt get to me until after my scheduled install time. Then when doing the install, the wires were not the correct ones. So I had to pay the shop to extend my current sensors. (I love dropping about $1200, then having to pay more to fix the product) Even if the plugs were correct, he said he had to add about 18" of wire to each side. I am not happy with BBK in this regard. Luckily, the throttle body and x-pipe had no issues. If you buy these, make sure you ask them to check to make sure the product isnt damaged.
