        Great fitting headers

        Headers were easy to install and have plenty of room around everything. And zero starter clearance them. Well worth the money to avoid the frustration encountered with other, cheaper headers.

        American Muscle comes thru again!

        Great addition to my '90 GT automatic. A decent lift in HP and a fantastic sound note improvement. Would definitely recommend a set.

        awesome fit

        great part - with my upr k frame these slid in from the bottom on jackstands like butter , had to remove dipstick and steering shaft , but other then that it was easy , ten times the room to easily drop the starter now - i wanted to keep my h-pipe so just cut it down and clamped the ends back on - great sound and feels better - get to the track next week to check

        Great set of headers!

        I slapped these on my 93 LX and they made such a difference over the shorties I had. They look great under the hood and sound awesome! I would definitely recommend these headers!

      Will these also work on a T5 mustang if i get the automatic x pipe also? possibly going to swap back to an automatic at some point
