      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, I'm Justin with, and I'm breaking down BBK Tuned Length Shorty Headers available in your choice of either ceramic or chrome, fitting all 2011 and up Mustang GTs. So why would you want to use a set of shorty headers, versus a set of long tubes? Well basically, a shorty setup is going to be less expensive, and much easier to install versus a set of long tubes. This is due to the fact that shortys for the most part are a direct bolt-on, meaning you won't have to modify your Mid Pipe, like you would using a set of long tubes. Now, will shortys perform just as good or better than a set of long tubes? Probably not, but it's still going to be a solid upgrade over your restrictive factory manifolds. These headers feature what BBK refers to as their tune-length runner design, which makes them a hybrid between a standard shorty header, and a set of long tubes. Now in the end, BBK claims more horsepower than a standard shorty header, all while maintaining the ability to be a direct bolt-on, no-modification-needed install. Taking a closer look at the headers, you can see they both feature 1-and-3/4" Mandrel-bent tubing, and laser cut flanges for an OEM quality fit. Now as I mentioned earlier, you do have the options of picking these headers up in your choice of either a ceramic, or chrome finish. So, what are the differences between the two finishes? Well, as you can see for one, looks. The chrome option is 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, you have the ceramic coated option, which will remain that bright silver throughout their lifespan. Secondly, that ceramic coating is going to act as a great insulator helping keep under-hood temperatures down to a minimum, which is always great for performance. Now those added benefits do come at a cost, as ceramic coatings are typically more expensive than stainless or chrome options. Now as I mentioned earlier, installing a set of shorty headers is a lot easier than a set of long tubes, but even still, I would leave yourself a full day just to tackle the install, just in case anything goes wrong. Either way, you can always contact your local shop if you get stuck, they should be able to help you out. So if you're looking for a simple bolt-on header with the installation and price benefits of a shorty header, with the performance to back it up, then be sure to check out BBK's Tuned Length Shorty Headers right here at

        perfect fit and easy install.

        Everything bolted right up with no complications. when you have the motor jacked up, have a partner tilt the motor to one side. That really opens up room to pull the bolts and its smooth sailing from there.

        Great quality product

        These headers look great under the hood, though according to my shop they were a hassel to install. Not much change in exhaust volume over all but I do notice it's a little louder in the low end. Small change in tone, definitely a little deeper than it used to be. Definitely recommend a shop install it, doing it yourself is not for the faint of heart.

        Takes time to break in

        At first there wasn’t a noticeable difference when installing the headers, but after a couple hundred miles you can hear the difference. It’s good if you want to keep everything “legal” in California.

        A must have addition!

        I got a little over excited on my shopping spree (who hasn't had that happen) and picked these up by mistake instead of the V6 version needed for my own pony. BBK's shorty headers gave my '13 V6 solid extra power between 0-60 mph. Feeling that momentum push you deeper into the seat is a lot of fun all by itself, but what adds extra value is how these shorty headers create a more deep, rich sound in the exhaust note. This is a must have addition for anyone looking for more low end power and making heads turn while using it!

        Get Long Tubes!

        There’s nothing wrong with this product, it’s a direct bolt on and quality construction. It was very hard and time consuming installing these and when I pulled out my old exhaust manifolds they looked identical. After the install there was not much of a difference. I recommend if you’re going to do your headers just go ahead and spend the extra money for some long tube headers because these are a waste of time and money.

        Bbk shorty headers

        Can have long tubes and be smog legal here in California so i had to get the next best thing. I had a shop do the install they said they didnt have no problems and everything mounted up good with no leaks. I did notice a little sound change and did notice more throttle response and look great so I'm happy

        Great headers, craptasitc gaskets!

        This is my first bbk product. The headers were kind of annoying to install but they look great, sound great, and improve performance a bit. My issue was the collector gasket by the cats blew not even 100 miles after the break in period. Not very happy I had to buy new ones...

      Using the Pypes X-Pipe, along with the Pypes Pype-Bomb super system cat-back exhaust. Will the BBK shorty headers fit with those products?

      • These BBK Ceramic Tuned Length Shorty Headers should work as long as the Pypes X-Pipe you have is one designed for shorty headers. If you're currently using the X-Pipe with stock headers, these headers would work.
