I have a 2010 v6 do I need a tune for this part ? Or any other things done or is it a straight bolt on ?Helpful (13)

Install was a long process but I'm pleased with the overall outcome. I have the pypes x pipe with gt SLP axle backs. Car sounds amazing! Makes a huge difference with performance as well.Helpful (1)

07 Mustang V6 headers
These headers went on nice but they are not a direct fit especially the driver side coil pack has to be unvaulted it moved up to make the header fit and also the dipstick tube has to be removed but the headers went on nice and easy just a modification to the coil pack they should tell you that when you purchase these headers but they tell you their address fit with no modification there is a modification but with all headers you have to mess with him to get them to work I'm happy with my set thank youHelpful (0)

install sucked, performance good
so in order to install i had to take off the old headers, remove the 2 bolts that held up the coil pack in order to fit the driver side. To fit the passenger i had to remove two bolts that held up the passenger fuel rail. I also had to move my whole exhaust back a few inches to get the driver side msnifold to fit. it took me about 7 hours to get it all installed. I am by no means a mechanic, but i do know how to work on a car. Idle i hear no difference but i do hear a difference around 2k rpm's. I also paired this install with a sr intake. I completely notice a difference in speed. Since ive installed ive beaten mx5's ,other 4.0's, 4.6's and some honda civics. at least 20hp gains with both installHelpful (7)

Decent Headers, Not an Easy Install
It took about 14hrs over the course of two days to get these headers installed. Granted a lot of the first day was getting the stock manifolds out and moving the existing catalytic converters and y-pipe back enough to get the new headers in. Once everything was out the oil tube bracket, the metal bracket that holds the ignition coil on the driver's side, and the metal bracket holding the water line and emission lines on the passenger side had to be modified because they get in the way of installing the new BBK headers. Additionally the shape of the new headers does not allow the use of sockets to tighten the retaining bolts in all cases and requires you use hand wrenches. One other note, depending on your existing exhaust, mating it to the new headers takes a bit of effort and may take several rounds of driving and re-torqueing to get it sealed properly. The performance boost is adequate and the sound is a great improvement over the factory manifolds. Overall I am satisfied.Helpful (8)

THIS INSTALL TOOK PLACE WITH X-CHARGER EXTREME. Decent headers, beautiful finish, and reputable exhaust manufacturer. I decided to go with these headers, after snapping off a stud in the stock manifolds, while going dual on my 4.0. Rather then drill out the stud I thought it would be a good time to add the headers, along with the duals, and do my tuning all at once. My EGR had to be slightly bent to allow mating on the drivers side. The bracket that holds the dip-stick has to be removed and the header slid over top of the dip-stick and manipulated into place. I chose to do this, rather then remove the dipstick. No problems on that side. Note: with X-Charger the coil pack has been relocated to the passenger side and wasn't an issue. The passenger side, I ran into the same trouble mentioned on the other reviews, not a perfect fit. Leaving 1 bolt out of 3 in the block for the bracket was an effective solution. ( this bolt was left out during the X-Charger install. # The supplied gaskets are good quality, and fitting them was pretty simple. No need to trim excess. Reaching the torque specs is difficult after installation if you just have average tools. I torqued the ones I could,# I believe to 17ft-lbs as stated in my Hanes manual for the stock manifolds) and then tried to apply same arm torque with just by box wrench. No leaks. The folks at AM and Bamachips can address you post install tuning! They make my 4.0 sound bad @&%! The chrome will eventually "blue" due to the high heat temperatures being F/I but im ok with this. Remember, chrome needs to be polished.Helpful (9)

Same problem everyone else had could not put 2 bolt back in due to the flang hitting the bolts. Dirvers side is hitting the back bolt for the Coil bracket the shop offered 2 solutions: 1) The could trim the flang but this required pulling the header back out. 2) Cutting the bracket off so its not in the way and just leave the bolt out. I went with option to since there are several bolts mounting the coil it did not weaken the mount. Suggestion would be to grind the bolt down to the a standard Hex (or just buy a new bolt) and also grind a little off this section of the header to allow the bracket to be mounted correctly. The Passengers side had the same issue with a bracket The bolts head is to big and will need replaced with a standard hex head bolt. The bolt the head is hitting is the one the above the header were the front most pipe comes off the heads. Its a mounting point for a hose which I can't remember what it was for right now (Probably the AC). Have not fully broken in the headers so I can't speak to the color change but its possible it will discolor slightly.Helpful (8)
how much horsepower will these headers give my v6
Probably 10-15 RWHP. Long tube headers are the better choice = >25
Can I bolt these headers to my aftermarket duel exhaust on my 2008 V6 mustang?
Yes, these headers are compatible with an aftermarket dual exhaust conversion kit on a 2008 V6 Mustang.
I'm a little curious about the design of these headers. They say tuned as if they're optimal for a certain rpm (like the gt350 pulse tuned headers). I dunno if you have the answer or if bbk would have the answer: with the stock filter air box and the stock intake manifold, what is the best rpm for these headers? I'm building power around the airflow for this car. I'm gonna install the best custom design of exhaust possible, dyno it, then work between the peak torque and horsepower. Then the cams, injectors, etc will all follow suit
The BBK Chrome Tuned Length Shorty Headers are referred to as tuned to describe the length of each primary tube and their arrangement inside the collector to promote exhaust scavenging. the headers will not be designed around a specific RPM, but rather around the stock RPM range to redline.
Hi Guys will they Generate alot of heat do they have to be wrapped which would defeat having shinny chrome under your hood, my hood has functional hood vents will that help
Your intuition is correct, as chrome headers in general are not designed for performance applications. Honestly I'd say that if you are driving fast, hard, and often enough to consider heat wrap with these headers, all things considered, I would suggest avoiding these headers. I would only go with chrome headers if it's a show car you plan on barely driving at all if ever.
Will the heaters attach to my stock cats?
Yes, the less restrictive headers will allow more airflow for an increase in volume.
Shorty headers usually will not require a tune after installation. However, we do recommend one to see better overall performance gains.
ceramic headers have a ceramic coating on them that will not burn off and keep temps down, chrome headers just have a chrome plating that will turn blue and discolor very quickly, this does no damage just doesnt look very good
