Review & Install Video

These are the BBK one and five-eighths inch chrome long tube headers for 1994 to 1995 GTs and Cobras. If you're looking for a set of long tubes for your manual transmission '94 or '95, these are currently your only option, so you're gonna wanna check them out. Long tube headers offer a great way to get both sound and performance gains outta your Mustang. And a lotta people turn to chrome headers like these ones for a good look in the engine bay. Long tube headers are always a difficult install, especially considering you'll need to install a short pipe with these headers. You can expect to spend a full day in the garage and a three outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter. Let's look at some of the specifics of the headers first. You have a one piece and three-eighths inch laser cut flange up here to prevent leaks and create a good fit at the heads. The primary tubes are one and five-eights inch mandrel bend, which is gonna help with smooth air flow. They then merge down into your collector which needs to connect to a new short pipe, so just keep that in the back of your mind that you will need a new pipe to run these long tubes on the '94 to '95. And it is recommended to stick with a BBK H or X-pipe so you know that they'll fit together. I always encourage people to keep with the same brands because when you mix brands, you tend to run into some fitment issues. If we move on to the finish, these headers have a chrome finish. Now this is different than a natural or ceramic finish. A ceramic finish is more functional and a natural finish is more raw. The chrome finish that these headers have is popular for show cars or for those of you out there that wanna keep a clean, bright finish under the hood. Just know that over time a chrome finish does tend to change a little bit in color. Overtime and after a lot of heat, you might get some gold notes on the headers. One thing I will say is that when it comes to long tubes, while a tune is not required, it's always gonna be your best bet when you switch to a long tube setup. Now I say this because a tune here will not only help you get everything out of these expensive mods, but one of the main purposes of the tune with the long tubes is to turn off those rear O2 sensors so you won't be getting a "Check Engine" light. Now, if you really don't want a tune or it isn't in the budget for you right now, since we are talking about budget shopping at this point, then you can get away with running some MIL eliminators to get rid of that "Check Engine" light. When it comes to price, you can expect to pay right about $400 for these. BBK is more budget-friendly than a lot of other options out there, but these particular headers are the only set that we have for the '94 to '95s right now. Do keep in might though that you will need to pick up that short pipe that I keep talking about. And a catted X-pipe is just under $400, while an off-road X-pipe costs right about $200. As for the install on this one, long tubes are always going to be a difficult install. I don't say this often, but if you don't have a helping hand, or you don't have much experience, it might be better just to take the car to a shop for the install. If you do plan on tackling this yourself, it's gonna be a full three outta three wrenches in the scale and a day in the garage, especially considering you will need to install that pipe with the headers. You can do it on a jack and jack stands, but a lift would make this easier for you, for sure. You're gonna need your toolbox for this one with an assortment of different sockets, wrenches, and extensions. You're looking at things like disconnecting the steering shaft, the starter, and removing the motor mounts to get enough room here. Now a lot of this install obviously requires working in some pretty tight areas. So while everything is straightforward and pretty simple when it comes down to it, getting access and maneuver abilities in these areas is actually tricky, and that's why you're looking at needing to remove your motor mount, so you can move things around and get some more room in there. And having a helping hand in this case is really gonna benefit you. But a day of wrestling and some pretty penny spent on these mods is totally worth it in my opinion. That's gonna wrap things up for the BBK one and five-eighths inch chrome long tube headers for '94 to '95 GTs and Cobras. As always, you can check them more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

Horsepower and torque gains. These top quality, mandrel-bent headers from BBK increase the flow throughout your entire exhaust to give you horsepower and torque gains you can really feel, when you need them most. Experience the immediate difference in your 5.0's acceleration and gains throughout your entire RPM band after installation. On the dyno these headers have shown gains of 15-20 rwhp over stock.

Top Quality Construction. 1 5/8" mandrel-bent tubing, CAD manufacturing, and thorough testing results in leak-free performance from these headers. A one-piece 3/8" laser-cut flange makes a secure seal, and a bright chrome finish looks as great as it performs. BBK recommends that these full-length headers are best matched with built engines and high performance applications.

Fit and Finish. Designed to fit your 1994 & 1995 5.0L Mustang with a manual transmission, these BBK headers include all necessary mounting hardware, gaskets, and detailed instructions. Please note that BBK long tube headers require a flanged end shorty midpipe - BBK recommends use of a BBK shorty H-Pipe or X-Pipe for maximum performance. Please see the matching shorty x-pipe options listed above.

Technical Note. This BBK product is not legal for use in emission restrictive states.

Do these work on a '94 Convertible? I have heard that the "X" Brace which strengthens the sub frame on my '94 Convertible may get in the way. Not really too picky about headers so if anyone knows for sure a Brand that WILL fit, let me know. Thanks!

MgKenny

  • I have these on my 1994 V6 Convertible. My '94 has a 5.0 V8 swap and my X brace doesn't get in the way. It was a tight fit, but it worked great. Was a little bit of a pain in the rear to install but I got it to work. you have to remember with an almost 20 year old car that brand new parts may not fit perfectly, and you'll have to do some wiggling here and there to make anything perfect. Just be patient with the install and you should be able to get it to fit.

Will these work on a 94 gt with gt40p heads? Will there be any issues with spark plug clearence?

94GT

  • The BBK 1-5/8 in. Chrome Long Tube Headers are not designed for the GT40-P head's revised plug angle and will have issues with clearance around the spark plug boots. We do not recommend these for use with the GT40-P Heads

with the install, will I have to lift the motor up some and/or disconnect the steering linkage to get them in?

DeonM

  • During the install of any long tube headers, usually the engine will have to be raised to accommodate for the extra space that the headers take up, the steering shaft may also have to be removed as well for proper install.

Says their for a manual, will these work with an automatic?

BrandonC

  • Hey Brandon, These will not work for an automatic because of fitment specifications and running into the trans of an auto. They can bolt onto the motor but the length of the tubes runs into issues with automatics.

Do you recommend getting the bbk x pipe installed first, or the long tubes? Because I know that they both depend on each other, but I don't know what should be installed first.

MattP

  • The long tube headers and shorty mid-pipe for the long tube headers must be installed together. Many enthusiasts find it easier to first install the headers as the mid-pipe can get in the way during installation. After the headers are installed, the mid-pipe will easily install.

    BBK Longtube Headers

    Seems to be a pretty nice product. I did have to bend one tube so it wouldn't contact the steering linkage, other than that they were a fairly easy install. The instructions state the driver's side header goes in jacking the engine up, but if you unhook the steering linkage, it slides right in without any lifting! Overall, I have been happy with them.

    These headers are great!

    I purchased these headers for the 1994 GT. The sound is fantastic, and performances gains are very noticeable as well. Well worth the money over the shorty headers. Installation was done at a shop on a weekend and we had to lift the engine to get them on. They look great under the hood, they sound great, and the increased power is great. No ground clearance issues either! highly recommend! (Also super fast shipping and great service from American Muscle as always!)

    I love love love these long tubes

    I've had multiple shorties and even a turbo 5.0 before but this is my first set of long tubes and I'm a big fan. I haven't had tons of driving time with them yet and I haven't even taken my Cobra to the track yet but my car now has the growl that in my opinion lives up to the Cobra name. Paired with the BBK off road X pipe and Borla exhaust it is just the sound I was looking for. Install was actually pretty straight forward. Driver side in from the bottom and disconnect steering shaft. Passenger side from the top and took off throttle body (and studs) and passenger side motor mount nut to lift and tilt engine. I've heard horror stories about fitment and install issues but from opening the hood to closing the hood about 3hrs with X pipe install and alignment of pipes.

    Great, but be patient.

    The headers shipped within a few days from AM, and then they sat in my garage for about a month. I recently installed the driver side header, and started to install the passenger side, but without any luck. The entire engine will have to be lifted and shifted to fit the header, otherwise it's a no go. If you are willing to spend time and take apart half of the underside of the engine, remove the starter, and take away plugs and what not go for it. Do not think you will finish this inside of an hour, have a friend and go for it. Other than the stress of the other side, the headers are great!

    WOW!

    We had to bend the O/R x mid pipe I bought in conjunction with the headers in order for the ends to match perfectly. Getting the right header on took loosening the motor mounts to rock the engine so we could feed the header through. And the left side was as simple as moving the steering shaft (correct me if i used the wrong verbage) and the header feed through quite easily. I coupled the headers with some O/R catted X mid pipes. Though I still have stock cat-back exhaust I still turn heads when driving. definitely made the sound rumble. Would recommend this to anyone.

    awsome sounding headers for the money

    I ran 2.5" exhaust, custom X pipe, 2 chamber flowmasters behind these headers and i am in love! Just a piece of advice, have the flanges machined at a local machine shop. They are NEVER straight, don't matter what brand you get. This will help your headers retain a seal and help keep header leakage at the heads to a minimal.

    i bought these for my 94 gt they look took a little longer then i thought to put in but it was worth it. The engine does have to get loosened in order to put them, when getting these you might wanna look at getting the x pipe as well both of them together fit really nice. Once on when the pedal is push down the free flowing exhaust can be felt.
