    Hey, I'm Justin with, and I'm breaking down BBK Tuned Length Shorty Headers available in your choice of either ceramic or chrome, fitting all 2011 and up Mustang GTs. So why would you want to use a set of shorty headers, versus a set of long tubes? Well basically, a shorty setup is going to be less expensive, and much easier to install versus a set of long tubes. This is due to the fact that shortys for the most part are a direct bolt-on, meaning you won't have to modify your Mid Pipe, like you would using a set of long tubes. Now, will shortys perform just as good or better than a set of long tubes? Probably not, but it's still going to be a solid upgrade over your restrictive factory manifolds. These headers feature what BBK refers to as their tune-length runner design, which makes them a hybrid between a standard shorty header, and a set of long tubes. Now in the end, BBK claims more horsepower than a standard shorty header, all while maintaining the ability to be a direct bolt-on, no-modification-needed install. Taking a closer look at the headers, you can see they both feature 1-and-3/4" Mandrel-bent tubing, and laser cut flanges for an OEM quality fit. Now as I mentioned earlier, you do have the options of picking these headers up in your choice of either a ceramic, or chrome finish. So, what are the differences between the two finishes? Well, as you can see for one, looks. The chrome option is 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, you have the ceramic coated option, which will remain that bright silver throughout their lifespan. Secondly, that ceramic coating is going to act as a great insulator helping keep under-hood temperatures down to a minimum, which is always great for performance. Now those added benefits do come at a cost, as ceramic coatings are typically more expensive than stainless or chrome options. Now as I mentioned earlier, installing a set of shorty headers is a lot easier than a set of long tubes, but even still, I would leave yourself a full day just to tackle the install, just in case anything goes wrong. Either way, you can always contact your local shop if you get stuck, they should be able to help you out. So if you're looking for a simple bolt-on header with the installation and price benefits of a shorty header, with the performance to back it up, then be sure to check out BBK's Tuned Length Shorty Headers right here at

    Tuned Length Design. BBK Shorty "Tuned Length" Headers out perform both the stock manifolds and regular shorty headers. Tuned Length Headers have a unique extended tubular design that allows for unrestricted exhaust flow to increase horsepower and torque. Perfect for street and strip.

    Quality BBK Construction. BBK Shorty Tuned Length Headers are manufactured from 1-3/4" CNC mandrel bent tubing for unrestricted airflow. And feature one piece laser cut 3/8" header flanges for additional strength, leak-free performance and a OEM fit. These headers are then completed in a bright chrome finish for good looks and a long life.

    Application. Designed as a direct bolt on, these BBK Shorty Tuned Length Headers will bolt straight up in the stock location to the factory Mid-Pipe without any modifications on both automatic and manual 2011-2014 GT Mustangs to improve exhaust flow and sound.

    Technical Notes. This BBK throttle body is CARB certified (CARB EO Number: D-245-16) and 50 state legal.

    Will these header work with the bassani cat back and x pipe combo exhaust


    I have a custom x pipe with a borla s style axle back for my 2013 gt and i am looking to help increase a bit of the the aggressive sound in my exhaust will this help with what I want?


    do they come with the ends to put on the exhaust pipes


    Can I use this with the pypes off road x-pipe?


    • You would be able to use these headers with the Pypes off road X-pipe yes.

    is a tune required for the Headers


    • A tune is recommended for optimum performance of any header assemble whether it is stock length or long tube however, since these are of stock length you will not require a new tune.

      HOLY never doing that again....

      Well I have to be honest... It defiantly took longer than the 8-12 hours here in my garage for the install. But... I am very pleased with the after product..... For the cold start it is slightly louder with my Roush Axle Back's. But after is kicks down from the high idle it is almost like nothing. Well until you step on it to take off... then it is a whole different ball game. The tone is MUCH deeper and quite a bit louder until you back off the pedal. Very happy with the purchase..... I can defiantly feel a difference in power when you are in 4th gear and doing 70 around 4500 RPM and step on it, not much but defiantly more behind the pedal...

      Great addition always BBK

      Feel the difference in the take offs no more restriction over 3k rpms. Good with tune, cold air intake, x_pipe,cat deletes,axle back. Great sound no more raspy. Too me a whole weekend. Long weekend to install. Better to remove motor mount bushing as well, next time. Did it jack stand and jack with small ramps. Hard with bolts fitting. Remove all the had hard time with tighten them. But it was ok.serve me right. Great experience now I can do better next time.. reused one header gasket and one new.

      Bbk shorty.

      I also go the 3 inch cat delete and h pipe. Just for the simple fact that if u try to get off the bolts for the cats ur gonna have a bad time lol. So i just cut the cat pipe and then took the headersout. HUGE PAIN IN THE BUTT. driver side is a breeze but the passenger side is absolutely terrible. They sound good but if u can swing the extra money get somebody else to install for you. The passenger side would not go in even with the engine lifted all the way up. Took us hours to finagel with it and busted knuckles to put it in.

      Great product

      Great product, really frees up air flow. I would definitely recommend a shop install unless you have a lift, the right tools and a mechanically inclined partner to help. This one can be a tough install otherwise.

      Bbk shorty headers

      Overall, the bbk headers came in very quickly after I ordered them. Packaging was great no scratches whatsoever and looked great just looking at the chrome finish! Took to a shop to install which was a little on the pricey end, but was completely worth it! They look great on the engine bay! Performance wise I felt a good kick in acceleration as soon as they were installed, Also noticed a nice sound in increase! Overall, great buy!

      Crazy install!!!

      This install took about 9 hours on a lift with a little help from a friend. I like the sound a little more aggressive and with full exhaust it compliments my other components. also looks good under the hood.

      Shorty headers

      Expensive mod. Didn't do much for performance, hoping to see more gains when I decide to tune my car with these. They look good under the hood. Don't really notice much sound difference with my American Thunders. Wish I went with exhaust cut outs instead. Also, this was a very long and difficult install for the shop.

      This product is great for CA customers

      This product is great for customers like me in California. I chose to go with the chrome finish because it's hard to see headers anyway in the 2012, I'm not really concerned about how they look. I did the install myself in the garage working off jackstands, it took me 9 hours to compleat. I definitely recommend trying to find a lift to install these. I feel the install would've been much easier if BBK would have sent 7 bolts rather then 5. Overall I am happy with this product, it definitely puts power to the ground where you can feel it.

      Nice Gains for Relatively Low Cost

      Combined with the after-cat X-pipe and our special Flowmaster exhaust, these headers are incredible value for the money spent. Even with a shop install, I'm impressed. Next step is a new hood (with better air induction), new cold air intake and a throttle body change. We're going to trick out the 2013 GT I guess!

      Really Loud!

      I already had the magnaflow competition series installed so it was already fairly loud... Added these with the after cat x pipe, it's blow your doors off loud now! Yes, it drones a lot at 2k but I love the sound! You're upgrading the wrong car if You don't like the drone! Noticed a significant throttle response from this install and if I could stay out of the gas the economy was helped by it too. If you're interested in keeping your stock cats like I was, this is a great route. I had a shop install it an it still took them a full 8 hours to do, not a jack stand install by any means.
