    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of BBK's Long Tube Headers, available for 2011 and up GT Mustangs. These BBK long tube headers are going to be a good option for the guys out there that are looking for a more budget-friendly long tube header for a more heavily-modified car, like one with forced induction or a nitrous car. And for someone that wants a ceramic coated header, the runners on these headers are 1 7/8 inch, which is slightly different than the 1 3/4 inch offering, and the smaller diameter is traditionally going to be a better option for naturally aspirated cars or those with mild bolt-ons. So just keep that in mind when shopping for long tubes. So this is a ceramic coated header, which is going to be different than a chrome header. BBK does offer these same headers in chrome if you're looking for a more polished finish, and chrome headers are going to be a little less expensive. But the ceramic coating's going to reduce underhood temperatures, and it helps to improve the flow of the exhaust gases, because the coating forces the header gas to only expand one way, and that's out the back of the exhaust. And that's also why you see claims that ceramic coating is going to help increase horsepower. The exhaust gets pushed out faster thanks to the coating, which then makes room for fresh air to enter the cylinders faster. The ceramic coating is also going to prevent any corrosion in the headers and keep them looking better for longer as opposed to chrome or polished headers. The ceramic coating can dull over time though, but the coating isn't going to come off or anything. It just changes in color slightly. And you can see here that BBK gives these headers a polished silver coating, so I'm just going to go ahead and say that over time this is probably going to dull. If you're not really into that dull appearance, you do have the option of the chrome headers like I said before. These are made from CNC mandrel bent tubing, which is going to help with smoother air delivery. The header flanges are one piece and laser cut, which is going to help give them strength and going to keep them from leaking. Like I said before, these are off road headers. And since we're on the subject of cats, let's talk about the rest of your exhaust set-up. Whenever you go from a shorty of factory header set up to a long tube, you are going to need to change your mid pipe to a shorty mid pipe, or if you have an S550, you're going to be looking at header adapter mid pipes. Now with both mid pipe types you will have a choice of going catted or non-catted, and they're going to be three-inch down to two and a half inches for a factory or aftermarket cat-back. The long tubes alone are going to change the sound of your exhaust, and when you combine that with changing your mid pipe, you can expect a pretty big difference in sound here. Obviously, if you go uncatted all the way, it's going to be louder than if you stick to high flow cats, but either way you're looking at a brand new sound and tone when you're done. So, if we move onto price, we have to kind of face it at this point and know that long tube headers are going to be a solid investment. They're pricey and difficult to install, but I'd say that they're worth it at the end of the day. The options from BBK are definitely more affordable than others out there, especially if you're shopping for an S550. If you are, you'll notice that BBK is the only company currently producing long tubes for under a thousand bucks, and even if you have an S197, you're still looking at a grand if you want to go with the big players like Kooks, LTH, Borla, Stainless Works. And then also keep in mind that if you don't already have a shorty mid pipe, you're going to need a little cash for that as well. But at the end of the day, you're looking at both power and sound gains here. In fact, you can expect gains of 20-25 wheel horse, depending on your set up and tune, in addition to an awesome change in your exhaust tone. And speaking of a tune, you will need a tune after the install here. Anytime you go with a serious mod like this you can pretty much expect to need a tune along with it. As for the install, there's no way to sugarcoat this one, guys, and I don't say this often, but if you don't have a helping hand or don't have much experience, it might be better to just take the car to the shop for the install. If you do tackle this yourself, it's going to be a full three-out-of-three wrenches on the scale and a day in the garage. You can do it on jack stands, but a lift will make it easier for sure. So, wrapping things up here, the BBK long tubes are 1 7/8 diameter, they come in either chrome or with a ceramic coating, and they're going to offer some performance and sound gains. You will need to grab a shorty mid pipe, and while long tubes are expensive overall, these ones right here are some of the most budget friendly ones that you can find out there on the market. You can check them out more online for yourself right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    More Horsepower and Torque. Improve your Coyote powered Mustang's performance by installing a set of 1-7/8" Chrome Long Tube Headers from BBK.

BBK's 1-7/8" Headers are recommended for use on Nitrous, Supercharged or Turbocharged applications.

They 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 bright chrome finish for good looks and a long life.

    Required Tuner Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that these Long Tube Off-Road Headers have to offer, AmericanMuscle highly recommends a Bama 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 GT/BOSS Mustang will require the use of a BBK Shorty Midpipe part# 1655 or 1658. Please see options listed above.

    1 7/8 vs 1 3/4 headers? Is their a significant difference wit the gains?

    • You would only benefit from the 1 7/8 headers if you planned on a high horsepower forced induction build. Otherwise the 1 3/4 headers will give optimum gains for any naturally aspirated build.

    i have a 2017 GT how do these fit 11-17 but your other options only fit 15-17 or 11-14? are these bent a different way allowing for the use of 11-17 5.0's?

    • Hello! Every companies design for their Longtube Headers is slightly different, BBK's are bent in a way that they are able to fit both 11-14 models and 15-17 models. All you need is the accompanying midpipe for the right year, so that you can fit everything perfectly. These are offered as a drop down "buy together" on the product page.

    Hello so I’m planning to getting headers for my mustang 2013 Gt I have the borla atack catback exhaust with H pipes.. will this fit perfectly on my mustang? Or which ones would bolt in with no problem ?

    • These headers are compatible with your 2013 GT Mustang and Borla cat-back exhaust. However, these headers along with other long tube headers would require a shorty h-pipe or x-pipe in order for everything to work properly together.

      Bent

      Got my headers in and brought them to the shop where we put them on, unboxed them, took off the bubble wrap from the end where it meets the mid pipe and the edge was bent really badly, fortunately we had a tool to bend it back out (And a hammer works too) but be weary if you are doing the install yourself and don't want to bend some metal

      Well I had flowmaster outlaws and a resonator delete it was loud but now with the bbk long tubes and off road x pipe it’s unbelievably loud and nasty sounding at that. Fyi get ready for people to stare at you in discusse of why u would do that to your car. Bye these!!

      Try to do them in a 2018 gt perf. Package. Driver side goes perfectly. Passenger is the problem the header will hit the a/c compressor. I had to cut the pipe and re weld it , in a different position.

      Well got them installed. It wasn't that bad, would definitely recommend you have the right tools before you start it will save so much more time. No need to drop the K member. And be careful of the ac hose as I now have no ac lol. But it sounds awesome! Everything bolted up like it should. Definitely so far so good.
