      Header bolts.

      The combo of ALLEN key and standard hex work great if you have very little room to maneuver.

      Long tubes

      Bolts are expensive but well worth it. You definitely don’t want to worry about any manifold leaks so buy these and your all set

      Looks great

      These header bots look great however do not work well with Pypes 1-5/8 inch shorty headers due to clearance issues however looking at other reviews it is a common issue with those headers.

      Stage 8 Header Bolts

      The bolts appear to be high quality. I like the option of using an allen wrench for installation, but you'll need an assortment of open end and box end wrenches before your through. My only criticism is the indexed washers. If the hex was off-set a bit you could flip the washer over to fit when the bolt head is not quite lined up for a perfect fit. I had to take several of them to my grinder and brush off the corner a bit to make them fit without backing off the bolt. That leaves a little more space that the bolt can back out before coming up against the header.

      So many times I had to replace header gaskets if I found these sooner I would have bought them ASAP. If you get headers for your mustang buy these bolts they are awesome and so easy too install.

      No more rusted bolts

      I just added these header bolts to my 94 Mustang GT. Look great, and I know I will be able to get them out the next time I need to.

      Save time and frustration...GET THESE BOLTS!

      So after installing new BBK Shorty Headers, I used my old crusty stock bolts to finish up the install. Big mistake! Since the header tubes are wider than stock, it was a pain to get the 9/16" wrench in there to tighten the bolts. Not only that, but eventually they started coming loose and I kept getting an exhaust leak. After much frustration, I saw these bolts and ordered them. BIG DIFFERENCE!. Not only are the heads a 7/16" which is easier to get a wrench in, you can get a socket on the bolt...and the head itself has a hex for an allen wrench. As if that wasn't awesome enough (cut my install time from 1 hour to 15 minutes, the locking clips keep them from backing out. AND....they look sexy as heck on my new headers versus the rusted bolts. Do yourself a favor...don't skimp like I first did and reuse the stock bolts...get these and you won't be sorry!!!!

      An awesome product to keep pesky header bolts tight

      This product was an awesome addition to my Fox. Every time I happened to check the header bolts they were looses. So finally a bad header leak developed and I found one bolt had actually backed all the way out. So I picked up a set of header gaskets and these locking header bolts. The bolts are great, but if you are running BBK Equal length, you will not be able to use the 1" bolts on the forward hole of the #3 cylinder, the primary is at too tight of a radius to use the 1". So I still have the 3/4" fastener there.

      Great product, very easy to install. Just unscrew the old ones out and screw these in. I tried locktite on my regular header bolts and they still got loose. Now i dont have to worry about going back and tightening them to prevent an exhaust leak. They look good and they work awesome! Thanks AM!
