Will these fit the jba after cat h pipe?


  • The After-Cat H-Pipe by JBA is for the stock length headers only. The use of these JBA long tube headers will require JBA Off-Road X-Pipe - 3 in. to 3 in., item Item 23125 or the JBA Catted X-Pipe - 3 in. to 3 in., item Item 23126. These two mid-pipe will require the use of a 3" catback exhaust.

can I use OEM Gaskets with these type of headers?


  • Hello, The JBA Natural Long Tube Headers would not work with OEM Gaskets, but the necessary gaskets for install are included.

Any issue with rust since these are not coated?


  • 409 is a stainless steel which should not rust. The only fraction of rust you may see is if you literally leave them in stagnant water for days since this is a higher carbon stainless steel as opposed to 304.

Do these headers fit with a HeartThrob H-Pipe? Understandably, the designed JBA X-Pipe will but... I currently have a Cat-to-Axle HeartThrob exhaust system that was a direct replacement of the stock configuration. Will these headers fit up to this H-Pipe? (with minor shorting of course)


  • These are long-tubes. They need a shorty midpipe.

    Love these!

    I was a tad dissapointed at the cold start of it because my x pipe w out this set up was loud and idled louder. But this sounds really good when you step on it and on top of it all w the Borla ataks! Well worth it the money. You noticed the difference in throttle response and torque right away. Can't wait to get them tuned next!

    I recently added jba 1 7/8 long tubes with matching x I installed these in my garage after work spending about 2 hours on it at a time. All in all the install went smooth the headers fit just bearly( might suggest 1 3/4 or a lot of patients) but I was able to reuse all of my factory studs and wiggle my hand in just enough to tighten all the bolts. Ratching wrenches will be your friend. The headers look amazing and sound incredible! Great quality product! Just as good as set ups that cost twice as much!

    Outstanding Headers!

    I'm very impressed with these headers. From the construction to the fit these headers are perfect. I had a huge power gain and throttle response. I was able to use the front O2 sensors on the collectors without the need for and extension. Also I was able to install these headers and reuse the OEM manifold studs. Passenger side was a little tricky but if you remove both manifolds first you won't have to remove the studs to get these on. Make sure you have a short 15mm ratcheting wrench and a short handle ratchet with pivoting handle. They are a life saver!

    Great sound!!! Just got a bad header

    The headers are a great price and sound great with the cat less x pipe and then depending on what mufflers you have etc. The only problem was the driver side header was rubbing in two spots on the steering shaft which caused the steering wheel to vibrate! Easy fix just dented the header a little but other then that it is worth the dent for saving money!!

    JBA headers on my 2012 GT

    Headers fit good , good quality , I wouldn't say top of the line because they are not stainless but I would buy them over again for sure . I installed these on my buddies 2013 so I knew they were quality and would have no fitment issues . With the selection of headers for the coyote I'd say these are your best bang for the buck , especially if your on a budget but don't want to sacrifice quality .

    These headers are amazing, I love the sound and the hp gain that i got and teamed up with a good off road x/h pipe they are amazing. I get complements on how well my gt sounds at every stop light and show I go to. I had a tough time getting the passenger side to go on but Im pretty sure that it was my fault. I defiantly suggest having a friend give you a hand just cause of the amount of things you have to remove and the amount of over head work that is involved if you install them with the engine in the car. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    Awesome headers and x pipe combo

    Of course if youve done you research you know that the header installs on the s197 cars are a pain. But due to the great fit of these headers it made it less of a struggle in my opinion. This is the 4th set ive put on and these have been the best fit so far. I highly recommend these headers. And the power gain was not bad either.

    JBA Headers are amazing :)

    i have had this headers for 2 months already and my only words that come to mind is holly Cow. this headers are worth every penny. it took me and my cousin 12 hour from start to finish. simply because it was our first time messing with headers in the new 5.0, to be honest with you guys it was a pain to get the last 2 bolts from the headers, but that was it. everything else fell into place perfectly. a lot of people complain that its to hard and in reality its just time consuming. i did it in a pair of jack stands and the car was lifted of the ground 3 inch at most 4 lol, so it can be done. the power gains are very good you can hear and feel a different animal all though the rev range. its amazing i would recommenced anyone with a 5.0 to bolt a pair of headers because its simply amazing the feeling you get, banging gear in them its amazing lol. i love these header and if you have the cash to drop on a pair of these bad boys "do it!!! "

    Amazing sound with my setup

    I performed the install in about 10hrs on jack stands in my garage, using simple handtools and a friend. It went pretty smooth, up untill i was trying to attach the mid pipe from jba to my stock over the axle pipes. With the long tubes and jba shorrty x pipe it was about 1in to long and the provided couplers didnt go over the stock pipe. I had to drive to an exhaust shop for them to cut it back a little and then weld it up. After that little fiasco. I got my retune from Bama and loaded that up. Wow! sounds perfect ! Still no rasp at all from my set up. JBA Long tubes, off road x pipe, no resonators, gt 500 axle backs. I love the sound!

    Nice HP gain

    I put these on in about 9 hours with just hand tools no air, if i had air it would of been cut in half, and I did it on jack stands, I really dont understand why the other headers cost so much? these are everything you want or need and very good quality....And I gained about 18 hp just from these alone....
