        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.

        I have a 1988 Lx that’s speed density will that make any sort of difference when getting these headers? Are they direct mount?

        • The BBK 1-5/8 in. Ceramic Coated Unequal Length Shorty Headers will be a direct bolt in for your car. Your speed density system will work just fine with these headers.

            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.

            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.

            Coating

            The Ceramic coating was not the my standard. The finish was not even and in spots looked like rusting or discoloring. BBK is great stuff but this was not to standards. Sending back and thanks AM for everything you guys are great.

            Sweet Sound

            Unfortunately the first set had a manufacturers defect on the drivers side, where the welds didnt completely cover. Customer service took care of this and I recieved replacement set. Look great and sound fantastic. BBK shorties, Bassani catted X pipe into Flowmaster 40's sounds great without being too loud.

            Excellent product

            Fit and finish excellent . Very easy to install took about 2 hrs . Only suggestion that I could give would be to provide at least on longer heater bolt in order to re-install the engine oil dipstick bracket and the bracket or the air pipe and to supply shouldered bolts instead of separate bolts/washers/locks for the exhaust pipe flange. When installing these headers I recommend installing locktite 242 (blue) on the header bolts and install a heat shield wrap on the a/c lines and the air pump hoses as they come very close to the header.

            Save your money on a cheap set of headers. The money you save will cost you in time and being a general pain in the backside. The BBK headers fit like a glove and the finish is pretty good.

            Good bang for your buck

            BBK nailed it with these headers. The fit is right on and bolted up with the supplied hardware as designed. They do give you a noticeable gain with power and sound AWESOME with the off-road BBK mid pipe. The polished ceramic finish is nice and it does help with underhood temps. Definitely a great deal for the $$$.
