    How much hp will increase?

    JuanV

    • Power gains with the BBK 1-5/8 in. Chrome Unequal Length Shorty Headers will depend on what other mods have been done, but on average you will see around 10-15hp.

    • Unfortunately we cannot provide fitment specifications for anything the product is not advertised for. What I can say is even if it may have similar/the same specs as the respective Mustang these headers are advertised for, it doesn't necessarily mean it will bolt right up.

    will these headers work with gt40p heads

    Lawson10

    • You cant use these headers because you will not have any spark plug wire clearance since the GT40P heads have a weird angle for their spark plugs vs the traditional location for every heads spark plug. I would recommend getting the Ford Racing GT40P heads, Mac headers for GT40P heads or find a set of stock GT40P heads in your local junkyard. I had a set of Ford Racing headers and they are worth the bang of your bucks..

      Look great!

      Install was pretty smooth. I have a BBK H-pipe too and I had a little trouble matching up the drivers side collector with the H-pipe. I wish the instructions included torque values for the bolts.

      BBK unequal shorty headers

      These shorty headers were a great easy add-on to my fox body. Took only 10-15 mins to install them they look great and I can tell the exhaust flow is much better than my old stock headers.

      As a do it yourself kind of guy and my only other experience doing headers was on my 79 f150. These headers were a breeze. If you can read and turn a wrench you can install these headers.

      The headers fit great on my stock 5.0 no worries about removing them to change the spark plugs. There are no clearance problems with these headers. gave myself a second degree burn on the back of my hand, Be careful.

      Very pleased with price and sound, I removed my smog system and h-pipe and replaced with xpipe, so these puppies were a cinch to install, fit right in and got no leaks first shot, they discolor quickly as expected and you will have to modify your oil dipstick.

      super beast!!!!!!

      These headers are an OE approved piece of hardware!!!!. these are probably in the top five best things I've bought from AM other than my e303. these headers compliment my cam along with my exhaust system. I literally had no idea these were chrome (super shiny) lol. other than the sound the chrome finish catches a lot of eyes when my hood is open. Another satisfied customer AM. keep up the awesome work!!!

      Great headers for the money

      Easy to install as long as you have a torch for the stock header to h pipe bolts. Sounds great can notice a little more power. Came with all gaskets and new bolts / studs Headers Starting to change colors now after about a week of driving.

      not bad

      They were an ease to install. Only thing the bolts they send with them are too short so I had to use the oe bolts. And have noticed already they are starting to turn color.. no big deal I didnt put them on for looks anyway. As far as performance I think they may have helped a smidge. But they definately helped with the throaty sound I wanted!!

      BBK Shorty Headers

      I purchased these for an engine yet to be installed. I talked to a salesman to determine if they came with gaskets and bolting and it didn't appear that they did so I ordered those separately. In fact they came with the headers. I'm keeping the extras for "just in case." They fit very well, the flanges are extra heavy so I'm expecting no leaks.

      BBK well worth it

      Great high quality product you would expect from BBK. Much better looking and less restrictive than the 20 year old factory shorties. Would definitely buy again and recommend to others who are looking for a replacement for their shorties at a great price.

      Not bad for the price.

      Headers are a nice upgrade from stock. There are stress marks from being mandrel bent after being chromed. Not big deal. Comes with a cheap paper gasket but I ditched that for an aluminum crushing gasket. They added a nice rumble when letting off of throttle and decelerating. Also a really sweet echo that I never heard prior. Performance gains seem minimal since im pretty stock otherwise. Possibly a little more up top power. My ONLY issues with these is the small headed bolts that they come with and the cheap studs. I managed to strip 2 studs when I was changing my midpipe a few month later. So I'd consider getting a set or ARP's to avoid this. Fitment is good, barely clear the steering shaft but it does. Had to delete my dipstick tube bracket and bend the tube so that it would route throught the headers properly. (Pain in the butt). Overall a good product for the money. If money allows it, go from something a little better in quality.
