      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my brief overview of BBK's long-tube headers available in ceramic or chrome, fitting all 2011 and newer V6 Mustangs. Simply put, long tube headers have been designed to replace your restrictive factory manifolds, which can really choke out the flow of exhaust. A set of long tubes paired with an aftermarket Mid Pipe and exhaust, will make for a very free-flowing exhaust setup, which can give you a nice bump in power, as well as make for one mean-sounding exhaust note. As far as price, these long tubes from BBK are an extremely reasonable option when it comes aftermarket long tubes available for the late model 3.7 L V6. Taking a closer look, these headers feature 1-in-3/4 inch mandrel-bent tubing, quality welds throughout, and laser cut flanges for an OEM-like fit. Now as I mentioned earlier, you do have the option of picking these headers up in a chrome finish, or a ceramic finish. So what are the differences between the two finishes? Well, as you can see, the chrome option are a little brighter initially, but that's going to change as these headers heat-cycle, eventually turning that bright silver into a dark copper color. On the other hand, the ceramic options are going to remain that bright silver color throughout their lifespan. Secondly, that ceramic coating is going to be slightly better at reducing underhood temps, which is very important for performance. Now those added benefits do come with a price as ceramic coated headers are typically more expensive than a chrome or stainless option. Doing the install on any set of long tubes can be a little intense, so it's best to set aside a full day or weekend just to tackle the job. Now, you might not need it, but it's always good to be prepared. Now again, if you don't feel confident enough to tackle this install, then don't hesitate to give your local shop a call, they should be able to help you out. Keep in mind, whenever you run a set of long tubes like these BBKs, you will need to address your Mid Pipe. In this case you will need to run a flanged, and shorty Mid Pipe, just to get everything installed correctly, now BBK recommends their Shorty X-Pipe for the best fitment and performance gains. In the end, what you can expect from using these long tubes from BBK is a considerable bump in both power and sound, all at a very fair price. So be sure to check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

        WILL START EATING YOUR WALLET QUICKLY

        LOOKS AND SOUNDS GOOD, BUT.... 02 SENSORS AND THESE PIPES DONT MATCH. THESE HEADERS WILL START EATING YOUR 02 SENSORS AND CEL WILL BE THERE FROM FIRST START UP. SENSOR EXTENSIONS ARE JUNK, AND THE SCT WILL NOT PROVIDE REAR CAT DELETE. SO AFTER SPENDING A GOOD BIT OF CHANGE FOR THESE HEADERS, CATTED X-PIPE, EXTENTIONS, SCT TUNER, THE CEL WILL BE LIT UP AND TUNING WONT HELP YOU. SO FAR 02 SENSORS (6 SO FAR) EVERY COUPLE MONTHS. DONT THINK I WOULD GO WITH BBK NEXT TIME.... WHAT I HAVE FOUND OUT SO FAR IS THE BUGS NEED TO BE MORE AT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE AND THE BUNGS FOR THE CATTED X-PIPE ARE TO FAR BACK.

        Amazing product

        Makes for a amazing sound. You’ll need a new x pipe when you purchase these and they give you O2 sensor extensions but you’ll need to buy another pair

        Look and sound great!

        These headers look great once installed, though make sure you have a 13mm rachet wrench or you're gonna have a bad day... I will say that the bottom flanges were bent when I finally got them in, had to bend those back out which was kind of annoying, but other than that they're great. I would highly recommend that this product start coming with new head bolts though.

      Has BBK fixed the extender harness/ o2 positioning problem? everyone I ask who has had these headers has had their bbk extender harness get corroded after 2-3 months and they have to replace the o2 sensors. I really want to get these headers, I just don't want to have to deal with all of those problems.

      • We certainly lend BBK any and all issues this product may have had in the past to help prevent these issues from moving forward. However, if you do notice any issues upon installation, please contact American Muscle Customer service and let them know as they would certainly see how they can help if needed.

      Can i install these headers without the X-pipe? I bought these headers and the shop told me that they will not work unless they are paired with the x-pipe.

      • No, these Long Tube Headers require the use of the Shorty X-pipe for installation. These headers extend much longer than stock manifolds or shorty headers and therefore will not just bolt up using the stock, standard size mid-pipe.

      Is there any damage to and engine after headers are put on without a tune I have a 2012 v6 mustang. I'm planning on installing a pair of long tube headers and the off road x pipe on it. I have read that the engine light will come on if the engine is not tuned. I want to know if any damage will be done if a tune can not be done right away? Thanks

      • DO NOT PURCHASE UNLESS YOU ARE GOING TO IMMEDIATELY GET A TUNE WITH IT. Here are a couple reasons I found out the hard way (I have a tuner coming now so I heard it will fix them). 1) My car now has what some call a idling surge. I call it my car not being able to idle right. Usually I idled around 750 rpm before getting these, now it will randomly drop off to 500 or below and sound like going to stall out even though just sitting with clutch in doing nothing. This is because the O2 sensors get moved and the car is reading wrong air-fuel ratio and doesn't know how to fix it. 2) Your car WILL smell like gasoline. ESPECIALLY with the off road x-pipe. I have the catted x-pipe, but after talking with one of the american muscle pros and reading forums, apparently it's normal and even worse without the cat. Same reason as the other issue, the car cannot read O2 right, which messes with air-fuel ratio, leading the car to dump more fuel than needed into the engine and thus out the exhaust. ALSO, your car comes stock with 4 catalytic converters on it... Now, if you get catted mid pipe you have 2, if non catted you have none. Cats burn off extra fuel that is in your exhaust to make it so not ommitting pure gas to air... No cats, no way to burn the extra fuel in your exhaust, thus car smells like exhaust

      What exhaust should I buy with this. What exhaust would go best with these headers and a catted x-pipe, I wont something lound but not too loud, I was thinking borla touring or s-type, which one would be the best choice?

      • Any cat back would go great but i personally like the borla touring with it.
