    Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is our breakdown of BBK’s tuned length shorty header, available in your choice of either ceramic or chrome for the 2005-2010 Mustang GT. So why would you want to use a set of shorty header versus a set of long tubes? Well in a nutshell, a shorty header is a great entry level header. For one, they’re generally less expensive than a set of long tubes, and they’re going to be easier to install thanks to the fact that you don’t have to modify your mid pipe like you would using long tubes. A shorty header might not make as much power as a set of long tubes, but it’s still going to be a solid upgrade over those cast iron factory manifolds. These particular headers feature what BBK refer to as their tuned length runner design, which basically makes them a hybrid between a long tube and a standard shorty header. In the end, BBK claims slightly more power using these headers versus your standard shorty design, while still maintaining a no modification needed, direct bolt on. Taking a closer look at these headers, you’ll see they feature 1 and 5/8” mandrel bent tubing for better flow, and laser cut flanges for an OEM like fit. As I mentioned before you do have the option of picking these shorties up in either a ceramic coating, or a chrome finish. So what are the differences going to be between the two finishes? For one you can see the chrome finish is a little brighter now, but that’s going to change as these headers heat cycle, turning that bright silver chrome color into a more copperish blue color. However, the ceramic coated headers will stay that bright silver color over the years. Secondly, that ceramic coating is going to be much better at reducing underhood temps, which is always better for performance. Those added benefits do come at a price as ceramic coated headers are generally more expensive than chrome headers, or even stainless steel headers. Doing the install on any set of headers can be a little intense, so it’s a great idea to leave yourself a full day, just in case anything goes wrong. As always if you don’t feel confident with the install, don’t be afraid to give your local shop a call, they should be able to help you out. So if you’re looking for a bolt on header with the installation and price benefits of a shorty header design, with the performance to back it up, then you’ll definitely want to check out a set of these BBK tuned length shorty headers for your ride today.

        Just wondering what type of additional horsepower should be expected and will this have an impact on fuel consumption? Also are there any long term disadvantages to making an addition like this? I am not someone that races my vehicle I just like it to look good and sound awesome. I currently have k n cold air intake and Flowmaster exaust on my 2008 GT. Thanks for your help.

        • The headers, with a good tune, will give you upwards of 15 or so extra hp. You may lose out on a few mpg's (it really isn't much though) due to your added power, but there are no negative aspects aside from this. In fact, the ceramic coating will not only allow for the headers to preform at their full potential in hot conditions, but in being able to handle hot conditions better these will last much longer than your stock headers would.

        Well I need a tune if installing these and a Pypes o/r H pipe?

        • These shorty headers will not require a tune after installation. However, getting a custom tune would help you obtain the optimum performance out of your upgrade and we would recommend a tune. A Tune would be required to disable toe cats and prevent P0430 and P0420 codes for catalyst efficiency with an o/r H pipe.

            Was not a direct bolt on

            My mechanic advised against me adding these after he showed me they were not a direct fit and had to alter a few minor things to make it work. My car already sounds good and it wasn’t worth the modifications to add. They are cool headers but not what I was dreaming of

            Tough squeeze but worth it

            Installed this on an 08 GT w/ 102K miles. Screwed two 2x8s together and used them on jack to raise engine by the front oil pan bolts. Must use a claw pick up tool to install the bolts on left side. #7 tube requires a 20mm long bolt on top, not the 25mm bolts in the kit. #4 tube requires a bolt on the bottom; stud interferes. Use only 6 point sockets; 12 points round off your fasteners. Best way to clean the gasket surface is an oscillating tool and a green Scotch Brite pad; blue pads do nothing. Use bungie cords or cargo straps to hold up the midpipe. Makes it much easier to install. Mileage is a little better. The sounds is a little more staccato. This took longer than any other headers I've ever installed.

            BBK Headers

            These headers as I was told from my exhaust shop are a real pain to put on due to small space. However, my stock manifolds bolts were rusted so they had to heat them up. Just something to look for when installing. As for how they look well great compared rusted OEM manifold. But the sound is incredible with full exhaust! Before it sounded all lumped together after I can hear the exhaust pulses. Sounds similar to if I put on different cams but I have OEM. Great product and can feel more power and very responsive.

            Worth it

            These are great headers. I love the sound they make compared to the stock ones. I would say this is a medium to large job not a light job. I have noticed some gains in the mid to higher rpm.

            Great shorties

            These shorty headers sound great, definitely more engine sound and feel the power increase but the only issues is one of the bolts you have to hit into place cause of clearance issues but otherwise good product

            Tough install

            This project was a lot of work. The drivers side was much more difficult than the passengers side. On the drivers side the third bolt from the front had to be shortened to fit into the flange whole do to it hitting the header pipe. Only the two front factory studs on both sides could be used, the rest are the bolts that come with the headers. Other than that they looks great and have a noticeable gain in torque and horsepower. If you are not mechanically inclined I would not recommend this as a do it yourself project.

            Much better flow and overall performance over the factory manifolds. I was super tired of using the factory manifolds for my single turbo setup and these were a perfect fit and function for my setup. Also the appearance is much much better would strongly recommend.

            These headers are great with the direct bolt on and the ceramic finish is awesome, A lot of people say to go with long tubes but if you already have a nice mid-pipe that cant support long tubes, this is your product, adds low end torque and looks great!
