        Better Headers

        I had a local muffler shop do the installation. They had no problems with the supplied parts. Everything bolted up fine to the existing Flowmaster exhaust. However, I didn't notice any performance improvement over the original factory headers which had been crimped.

        Coating doesn’t last

        They looked great for the first year or so however over a few years, the coating has flaked and a lot of rust. Thought for the price they would have lasted longer.

        Great Mod!

        Went from one long tube headers to these beautiful ceramic coated shorties and I couldn’t be happier! The long tubes I had had a hairline crack in them and would always hit my driveway ramp, plus they made the engine compartment very hot, the ceramics not only look great they keep the engine compartment cooler,I have them married up to the BBK H-pipe and super 44 Flowmaster mufflers which I also bought on here and I can be heard coming and love waking up the neighbors w that trademark Mustang Growl!

        Perfect fit!

        Absolutely the best fitting headers I’ve ever installed. All the bolts went right in perfectly. No drilling the holes bigger. No prying to try and make it fit. Just perfect and they look incredible with the ceramic coating.

        Awesome Product

        Great look, clean installation. Do yourself a favor and get the upgraded gaskets as the ones included are worthless. Awesome sound and mileage gain, but also able to cut out the cats due to age.

      Are both headers set to receive o2 sensors because I have 2 o2 sensors in my car currently.

      Is CARB# stamped or engraved and visible on these headers? It Is necessary these days in California unfortunately, or else instant Smog inspection fail!!

      I wanted to found out if this product comes either the hardware and gaskets?

      • These headers come with the hardware and gaskets for install.

      I have a set of GT40X heads and was wondering if these will fit? Thanks!

      • Unfortunately, these shorty headers by BBK are designed to work with '86-'93 LX, 5.0L GT & Cobra models and will not be compatible with a set of GT40X heads.
