      Review & Installation Video

      Hey guys. Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here with a brief breakdown of the BBK Chrome Equal Length Shorty Headers available for your 86 to 93 Fox Body Mustang. Before we start talking about some of the benefits in details with these specific Shorty Headers from BBK, let's briefly talk about why you might want to go with a set of shorties when compared to a set of long tubes. And I think the easiest and simplest way to describe this is, a set of shorties is going to be far easier to install and easier on your wallet compared to those long tubes. Now with that said, a long tube will probably make more horse power in the end, but nevertheless the shorty will be a solid upgrade over those restrictive and heavy cast-iron manifolds. Now these particular headers feature what BBK refers to as their tuned-length or equal-length runner design, and that's a design that features slightly longer primaries here, or runners. And that's gonna give you a little bit more power and torque according to BBK.Now you can also expect a change to your exhaust note, basically a little louder, maybe a little bit more aggressive exhaust note as some of our customers have pointed out in the customer review section. Those Equal Length Runners are one and five-eighths inch in diameter and have all been mandrel bent to help improve your exhaust flow and are attached to a laser-cut flange for an OEM-like fit. BBK even tosses in some included gaskets and hardware just to save you any unnecessary trips to the parts store. As you can see, these headers do also feature this nice bright chrome finish here, which will no doubt look good underneath the hood of your Fox Body. And for a few bucks more, you can opt for a ceramic coating which will make the finish slightly more durable, and it will help reduce under-hood temperatures.If you would like to check out other options from BBK, well then you can always head back to the site AmericanMuscle.com. Click the link below if you're not already watching this there. Now even though these Shorty Headers are slightly easier to install compared to a set of long tubes, there still is a good amount of work involved, so just make sure that you leave yourself at least a half a day in the garage, and make sure you have a good set of tools on hand before getting started. Now either way guys, if you do have any more questions about the BBK Shorty Headers here, or if you'd like some install help from one of our Mustang experts, reach out to them anytime using e-mail or by phone. So if you're in the market for a set of Shorty Headers for your five-liter manual Fox Body Mustang and you want to make more power than a traditional design, and also look good while doing so, then you have to check out the Chrome BBK Equal Length Shorty Headers available here at AmericanMuscle.com.
