        Heat Wrap On Ceramic Headers Would it be beneficial to heat wrap these headers before installing or would the temperature change be negligible because of the ceramic coating on these?

        Trying to find the right exhaust header setup for a 2010 Mustang V6 4.0L! Can I go with the BBK Shorty Headers and the Pypes Mid-Muffler True Duel Exhaust? Will they be direct fit/bolt on, or will it require initial welding such? TIA!

        I have a 2008 v6, 4.0 mustang with BBK 70mm throttle body, BBK CAI, Screamin Demon coil pack, and a custom Bama tune. I’ve not done anything to the exhaust or headers, would this fit the stock exhaust on my mustang and would I see benefits?

            Fantastic headers!

            I know there are some mixed reviews on here regarding to the installation/fitment, but on my 2008 V6 I had zero issues getting these bad boys on. The headers provided my exhaust with more of a throatier sound and a lower rumble, making it sound less like a Japanese tuner car and more like a muscle car. Very pleased with these, and would highly recommend ANYONE considering headers to go with the bbk CERAMIC! It's worth the extra money, I assure you.

            A bit of a tight fit

            Boy that was harder than expected. Ran into lots of issues. Mostly because my pony's previous owner did a lot of unnessesary welding and really rusted bolts. A torch and some cutting later. And finally done.

            Good mod, pain to get installed.

            Once everything is was installed car sounds great, and noticeable increase in torque and hp. My 4.0 v6 no longer sounds like a European engine. For an extra $100 this is a better mod than a CAI. Only giving a four star because it doesn't come with studs and bolts to mount on the engine, had to re-use my factory rusted ones. TIPS: If anyone is planning on doing the install at home, have someone help you out. I didn't have to remove any other parts beside unplugging the MAF and EGR wires. Passenger side is ten times easier to install than the driver side. I'd recommend using permatex grey silicon in conjunction with the provided gasket. These headers have connecting ports, unlike the factory headers. I didn't realize this until I had the new headers installed and there was a huge exhaust leak because the oil dipstick was crushed between the engine block and the headers. Also mount the tube that connects the EGR valve to the headers before mounting the headers into the car.

            Great performance and sound but too much heat

            I love the headers but they produce a lot of heat under the hood. I had to have my starter replaced because of the heat and even with heat wrap over both headers the temperature under the hood is still above average

            Install and overview

            The installation was incredibly rough. Took 2 1/2 days. Lots of the nuts were seized up and required cutting off. EGR tube nut took multiple methods to get off. The passenger header didn't fit very well I had to reposition the cat to get the header to fit in JUST right. This whole process requires working in very tight spaces some of which required 27mm wrenches. After the long process and getting them on I did notice a difference in sound. NOTE: I already had Pypes catted X pipe true dual exhaust and flowmaster outlaws before this install. I also noticed a small increase in power, but not too much.

            Nice headers

            The headers have a shiny coat on them that i hope it will last. I got them installed with my stock cats. I had some long tubes with no cats wich sounded much louder and meaner. Now it has a much quiter sound but still rubbles and i can hear my whistle from my intake. I still feel the power from the shorty headers, which is great. Maybe later i will purchase some pype electric cutouts for my cats. I really like the speed the it gives the v6.

            These headers let my pony breath a lot better, back then the car was asking its gear change to 4 when i was going 35 mph, now it can go much farther aroundo 60 without a problem, recommended...installation costs a pretty penny $300 at my local shop in texas

            Wow, what a different

            I must say, I was blown away. I put a CAI on from BBK and was lightly impressed. I then put on the headers and I went from being able to power break a burn-out to being able to stomp on it and burn out through first, second, and chirp as I go into third. It's an automatic as well. The only problem I have is fit is a pain in the butt. The alternator bracket gets in the way and the coil pack bracket gets in the way, strong advice to remove them as well as the dipstick prior to installation. I had to grind off the bottom of the coil pack bracket and grind off the head outside head of both bolts to both brackets to get it to fit. Overall, just blown away by the performance gain. Looking forward to true dual exhaust and 70mm throttle body.

            They look and sound great! Don't expect that shine to last cause it burns off quick. A few bolts won't fit without some alterations including your dipstick. Overall great headers.

            Amazing headers- install was a huge pain!

            The headers gave the car such a nice sound especially because they were installed with pypes dual exhaust. I have no complains with the headers performance. The car runs and sounds incredible. The install was a huge pain. The headers weren't threaded all the way. So to get the bolts in we're such a pain!! The shop that installed lost 45mins just on trying to get bolts in. Then the headers were supposed directly bolt on to the cats(according the site) and once everything was installed and the car was turned on, there was a massive exhaust leak sound coming from the cats and the headers bolt on so they were taken apart and found out that the headers are too big to create a seal with the cats. So they had to be removed and welded together to get rid of the leak.

            These headers gave an excellent tone to my V6. They really awakened some horsepower that was lost because of the garbage stock headers. Couldn't recommend BBK or these headers more!

            These BBK shorty hearts are great! I was unsure about buying them at first, because of the mixed reviews, but I ended up biting the bullet and bought them. WOW! I could not be happier, there is a noticeable difference in hp and a improvement in sound. The sound isn't too loud but just perfect, comparable to a v8 sound.

            Nice Headers but you will need to make Modifications

            On my 2010 V6 Mustang I had to remove and cut a bracket on each side of the engine to get the headers on. On driver side you will have to trim the distributor bracket and on the passenger side you will have to trim the heater hose bracket. On both sides the part that hits is the large bolt. the bracket and the bolt hit the header and need to be modified before you can snug the headers and the bracket back up.

            BBK - A Winner

            The Pypes shorty headers we installed five years ago developed leaks along a weld. After failed attempts replacing them with two sets JBA shorty headers... these BBK headers accepted the EGR tube like a glove. They look and so great on the true-dual exhaust with GT mufflers. Wife says she feels a little extra power. Thanks AM
