Will this setup work fitment-wise if I purchase this product? Kooks shorty headers, stock cats, pypes o/r h pipe, Roush axle backs


Will these fit on my stock cats? I have a borla atak catback system! thanks


  • The Kooks 1-7/8 in. Super Street Shorty Headers will work with your stock mid pipe and catalytic converters.

Are these headers tune required and will they fit my car? I have jba off road h pipe


  • A tune is highly recommended with the Kooks Super Street Shorty Headers. These headers are designed to bolt up to the factory H-Pipe. It may not be a direct bolt on with the JBA mid-pipe.

Hello AM, Will the shorty headers fit to a KOOKS H-pipe? I can only find KOOKS h-pipes with long tube headers required. Thanks from The Netherlands


  • The Kooks Super Street Shorty Headers will only install to stock length X and H pipes, but can use any brand. these will not work with X and H pipes for long tubes.

looking at kooks shorty headers for 2012 boss mustang. I would like to confirm fitment to the stock boss exhaust system.


  • These Kooks Super Street Shorty Headers will certainly fit the the stock mid-pipe on your Boss.

so is this a good fit for ford racing x pipe and borla s type axle back ?


  • Hey Jesus This should bolt on to your ford racing pipe without a problem. With Shorty headers you get a little more wiggle room in terms of mid pipe fitment than you would with long tubes.

    Tight Fit

    I got these headers and knew going into it that it would be tough, did not realize how tough it would be though. It was a serious task to get to the top bolt on the starter, and they are really tight for being such a small bolt, then getting the front two bolts on the passenger side engine mount became a chore to remove because of the ground wire on the upper one and the one wiring harness. After getting that all out of the way and removing the steering linkage I just had to lift the engine up. Removing the headers was fairly easy, and removing the studs was fine as long as you have an E8 inverted torx socket. The instructions I got with my headers said to put a few of the bottom bolts in and hang the header on it, that didn't work for me at all. I put the top 4 in, pressed the header up into it then started the easiest to reach bottom bolt. Also I had to clean the holes up before putting the new bolts in, mine was the fine thread set and it was a M10X1,25 tap. I would highly recommend using a lift if you have access to one, this job really sucked to do laying under the car between a jack and jack stands.

    Kooks Headers

    Well after a full weekend I got my car back with these headers, from what I was told.. this wasn't an easy install. Alot can be done with 1 person, but will require 2 people at some point. However perfect fitment, the supplied gaskets seemed a little on the cheap side but they had to be used. The headers have very good quality, and exhaust flow. Sound overall the exhaust note is deeper, swifter and just has an unique sound. My car breathes so good now sounds like a turbo is under the hood! When on throttle, the response is very better, and you can feel the car pulling harder but smoother. I have the Roush Axle backs and they toned down the rasp, but is still loud with way better tone. At WOT the car still screams so no worry there. Only recommendation is to go back and tighten the head bolts, usually new bolts will back out a little bit with vibration.. but you'll be able to tighten up, up top.

    I installed these in my garage with rear wheels on ramps and the front on jack stands. I won't lie, this job was hard! It took about 3 days but it was really worth it. I definitely recommend dropping the K-member as it will make the starter and all the header bolts easy to access except the front passenger side stud. Like another customer mentioned get an e8 torx socket and removing the studs will be easy. My 2013 GT with 22000 miles has been thru 2 winters here in Germany so my exhaust is pretty rusted. I snapped one of the catalytic converter studs so be prepared to knock the studs out and replace them if this happens to you. I also recommend replacing your stock motor mounts if you are going to do this job since you will either have the k-member out or engine raised either way. After the first start up I knew I made a great choice. I thought my Roush axlebacks sounded great before, but now they are a little louder and much deeper! I can definitely feel the seat of the pants hp/tq gain from these headers!

    Kooks super shorty street headers

    Awesome awesome product. Took a weekend to install but could be done faster as I took my time. You well feel the power increase, and the fitment is just perfect. One note thought be carefull of the ac hose on the passenger side as its close to the factory header stud
