More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the performance of your DOHC 4.6L Mustang with a set of BBK Long Tube Headers. These BBK chrome headers will greatly improve your Mustangs exhaust flow over the restrictive stock manifolds and increase your Pony's horsepower and torque. Increases of up to 22 RWHP have been seen when installed with a BBK shorty Mid Pipe.

Quality BBK Construction. BBK Long Tube Exhaust headers are manufactured from 1-5/8" CNC mandrel bent tubing for unrestricted airflow. And 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 great muscle car looks and a long life.

Recommended Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that these Long Tube Headers have to offer, AmericanMuscle recommends a custom tune with either a SCT SF4 or Diablosport InTune Custom Tuner.

Application. These Chrome Long Tube Headers are designed to fit the 1996 to 1998 SVT Cobra Mustangs equipped with a manual transmission. BBK long tube headers require a flanged end shorty midpipe in order to function properly. BBK recommends using a BBK shorty H or X-Pipe for the best performance gains. 

Please Note. 1998 SVT Cobras will require modification to driver side emissions tube for proper installation.

Technical notes. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only. A BBK shorty Mid Pipe is required for installation.

Ground clearance I realize everyone has a different ride height (mine's still stock) so how many inches below the oil pan (or other section) do these headers hang? This is for a cobra motor I have that will be put into my GT at a later date.

  • I have a set of these on my 98 Cobra with turbocharger. Never have had a problem at all with clearance but I do "carefully" watch the speed bumps.

    BBK long tubes for 96 Cobra

    These BBK headers were a great addition to my 96 Cobra. As usual, American Muscle had my package shipped out quickly. Thanks again!
