    Hey, guys. Stephanie with, 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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    What midpipe is recommended when using these headers


    • Anytime doing long tube headers you will want to match up the same brand mid-pipe as header for proper fitment. These BBK 1-7/8 in. Chrome Long Tube Headers will need either the catted BBK mid-pipe adapter or the catless mid-pipe adapter.

      Poor Designed Headers

      Purchased about a year and a half ago and from that time the o2 sensors will die often because of the way the sensor sits in the header. Unfournately it is not worth the value because even though it is more afforadble than most headers, you might aswell just pay more for a better brand that actually will save you lots of money. And trust me its not fun to always have your bank 1 sensor 1 go every other month, it makes the car literally run horrible with non stopping bogging.

      BBK long tubes

      The headers don't fit too bad. Drivers side fit perfect, however the passenger side you have to drop the motor back down some and the header also sits very close to the motor mount stud. You have to get the nut on and then drop it some and screw it down. Couldnt get a socket on the motor mount nut so had to use an open end. Only had to use one extension for the drivers side. All others didnt need an extension. They tell you you only leave 3 studs in per side but thats not the case. There are 5 studs total that come out to be replaced. Other than a few minor things they're in and working pretty well. Definitely changed the sound of the car with their orx and corsa extremes. It says 6-8 hours to install but the passenger side is a pain. Ended up taking me 13 hours by myself but I've never installed headers in one of these cars before and this was on ramps. A lift would be way easier.

      BBK Chrome long tube Headers - 1-7/8 in

      These headers are good quality controlled cause the fit and finish is second to none. You pay for what you get most of the time and these headers look fit and sound as good as some of those crazy expensive tubes you see out there. The header flanges are 3/8ths thick and you can lay a straight edge across the flange and both the left and right header are true and flat and ready without further work to bolt then up and they fit and don't leak anywhere we hooked them up with some stock mufflers as so to listen for any header flange leaks. I was happily surprised. After we ran the car around to get the headers warmed up and then we came back to let them cool down. We do this about three to five times each time we go around we go a little further than the previous run as to heat cycle the headers and save the chrome finish from turning blue and cracking the chrome and causing to blemish and flake off. If you fail to do this on any new headers, it has been known to crack the tubes and cause a lot of un necessary and expensive problems. I think personally that these are the best bang for the buck for sure. I have already recommended these headers to my two other brothers, and anyone that is looking for an exhalent set of very well made 1 7/8th" long tube headers
