    Boosts Power. Give your older Mustang new energy and a new aggressive tone to boot with MAC’s 1-5/8 in. Chrome Shorty Headers. Smooth Mandrel bends improve flow that will produce significant gains in both torque and horsepower. This shorty header kit is compatible to stock and aftermarket mid-pipes.

    Made to Last. With industrial strength chrome plating and 16-gauge steel tubing, MAC’s Shorty Headers are built to last for the long haul. The single port flanges on the primaries are superior to solid flanges that tend to loosen up. The 2.5 collector’s True Fit design eliminates gaskets that could leak.

    Easy to Install. MAC Shorty Headers are designed to be a direct bolt-on installation. They come with all the hardware that is needed to install as a replacement for your stock manifold. You will need to purchase header gaskets because they are not included in this kit. The 2.5-inch True Fit Collector is compatible to stock, MAC and most other manufacturer’s mid-pipes.

    Warranty Information. MAC covers their shorty headers with a one-year warranty that guarantees no material or workmanship defects with normal use.

    California Emissions Law. These shorty headers are not legal for purchase or use in California.

    Application. This pair of MAC 1-5/8 in. Chrome Shorty Headers fits 2001-2004 Ford Mustang V6 3.8L models.

    1 Top Rated Question

    I know why these are specifically for the 01-04, but Question: Can the 99-00 extra emissions items (Secondary air bypass valve and its related piping) just be removed in favor of headers without the extra hookups?

    • We have not attempted to use the MAC 1-5/8 in. Chrome Shorty Headers with earlier 99-00 engines. We would recommend a header that lists fitment for your year range, such as the BBk headers linked below:

      Chrome Shorty Headers

      These headers were bought to help solve the problem with ford's original headers being made from aluminum foil and i can say that they really did completely eliminate the dreaded ticking from the old worn headers. With volume and sound these new headers had little effect on the actual volume but they did put a slight bit more grumble to my exhaust. Finally the look of these things was absolutely great, yes my engine isnt the cleanest thing in the world but in an engine bay prepped for show these headers will really fit nicely in place there. The chrome of the headers after just 3 days worth of having them installed had begun to change to rainbow like the exhaust tips you see on some JDM cars. if you like that look then these headers will be perfect but be warned if you only want chrome since the finish wont stay pure chrome for long. Otherwise the install itself was easy on drivers side and passenger was just... ughhh. I would advise to have a lift and multiple types of ratchet extensions and pivots to reach in the super tight space available. all in all these headers are a good product for replacement of old headers or for show, sound and power not as much useful.

      Great product

      Looking forward to purchasing this again. The last mustang I owned before selling it had these shorty headers. They work great
