Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey guys. Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with a review of this MBRP Long Tube Header and Mid-Pipe Kit available for 2011-2014 GT Mustangs. In this video, we're going to be looking at a few things in regards to this kit. We're gonna talk about the materials and construction of the headers and the mid-pipe and the install, too. We'll talk more about this later, but I can tell you right now that long tube headers make for a difficult install. So, I'm gonna call this one a three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. This kit from MBRP that includes long tube headers and a matching mid-pipe are gonna be a good option for someone looking for a natural finish, catted, long tube header for both performance and sound gains. This kit comes with your matching shorty mid-pipe and makes way for continuing three-inch cat back. If we start with the heart of this kit, we'll be looking at the headers. Long tube headers are gonna offer both performance and sound gains, but the end result of your headers will depend on the rest of your setup. The runners on these particular headers are one and seven-eighths inch which is slightly different than the one and three-quarter inch offering. Traditionally you see forced induction cars running a larger runner and NA cars running smaller runners, but I wouldn't really say that that's a hard and fast rule especially with the Coyotes. So you don't have to have a blower to run a one and seven-eighths inch diameter. You just need to keep in mind your current mods and the goals that you have for your car when you're looking around, as well as what going with this size runner will do to your power band with the mods that you have. If you have some bolt-ons and you're still NA, you might see a hit on your low-end torque, but once you spin the Coyote motor up, the larger diameter is gonna help keep things moving, so what you're gonna see are top-end gains. Getting into the specifics here, these are a 304 stainless steel header that have a natural or a raw finish, which is gonna be different than a chrome or ceramic-coated header. It obviously doesn't have the polished appearance that a chrome header would have. While these do not have the ceramic coating either, they are made from that 304 stainless steel tubing, so you won't have to worry about corrosion. And not to mention you do get to see beautiful welds since these have that raw finish. And this is manual bent tubing which is gonna help with smoother air delivery. The primary tubes then merge down to a three-inch collector, and MBRP has these header flanges here that are laser cut and they do that to prevent leaks and create a good fit. Then you have your mid-pipe right here, which is an H-pipe. Now typically speaking, we see H-pipes producing more of a deeper sound than a louder sound, especially when we compare it to the sound of an X-pipe. This mid-pipe is a three-inch mid-pipe so just keep that in mind. And if you guys didn't know already, when you change your header setup to a long tube setup, you also need to change your mid-pipe to a shorty mid-pipe in order to work with the long tubes. So it's nice that these are already paired for you. It takes the guesswork out of the equation. If we move on to price, as well all pretty much know or you know if you've been shopping for long tubes, that they're pretty much gonna be a solid investment. They're pricey and they're difficult to install. The option from MBRP, since they are a higher quality item that's more at the top of the food chain, are gonna be on the more expensive side. The one and seven-eighths inch option that we have here are gonna be slightly more expensive which isn't unusual to see. You do tend to see a larger runner size costing more than a smaller runner size but not usually by very much at all. You're looking at spending between $1300 and $1400 for this kit which does give you a little bit of price break than if you were to buy these pieces individually. So this does sound pricey initially, but do keep in mind that you won't need to buy your shorty mid-pipe since it's already in the kit. And this is why I called long tube headers an investment earlier. You do have to keep in mind all the benefits and power that you'll be getting from this setup. And to put things into perspective, it's not just MBRP that's gonna be expensive. You're gonna be looking at headers costing over $1,000 anyway. As for the install on this one, long tubes are always gonna be a difficult install. I don't say this often, but if you don't have a helping hand, or you don't have much experience, it might be better to just take the car to a shop for the install. If you do tackle this yourself, it's gonna be a full three out of three wrenches on the scale and a day in the garage, especially considering that you're gonna be installing this mid-pipe with these headers. You can do this on a jack and stands, but a lift would make it easier for sure. You're going to need your toolbox for this one with an assortment of different sockets, wrenches, and extensions. You're looking at things like disconnecting the steering shaft, dropping the starter, and removing a motor mount. A lot of this install obviously requires working in some pretty tight areas, so while everything is straightforward, getting access and maneuverability in these areas is actually tricky, which is why you need to pull a motor mount on one side so you can raise the motor slightly with a jack to give you a little bit more room. And having a helping hand in this case is really gonna benefit you. But a day of wrestling and some pretty pennies spent on these mods is totally worth it, in my opinion. So wrapping things up with the MBRP long tube catted headers, these are 304 stainless steel headers that come with a matching H-pipe for a mid-pipe and both pieces are three-inch. The headers have one and seven-eighths inch runners and as usual, you can check them out more online for yourself right here at americanmuscle.com.

Did the installation myself, pretty hard but doable and the only problem I have is that my driver side header hits my steering shaft at certain times, other than that, makes the car sound way better

i have the flow master outlaw series cat back with these bolt up together?

ThomasD

  • The MBRP Long Tube Header and Catted H-Pipe Kit is designed to bolt up to the MBRP Street Cat-Back Exhaust, MBRP Race Cat-Back Exhaust or OEM Exhaust System. It may not be a direct bolt on to the Flowmaster Outlaw Series Cat-Back.

Will this MBRP Long tube header with the catted H-Pipe kit, fit my Borla atak catback system? Currently trying to get long tube headers that will let me pass emissions with no codes.. thanks!

Realgiomayne

  • This MBRP long tube header and H-pipe will not fit with the Borla ATAK catback system unless you purchase a step down pipe to conjoin the H-Pipe to the catback. The H-Pipe piping size is 3" and the Borla ATAK is 2.75" which will require custom modification to use together.

Will this bolt up to stock over axle pipes.

I have a Borla touring axle-back and everything stock. Is it compatible with the stock over axle pipes? Can I run this setup without a tune, it wont hurt the engine right?

JC

  • This MBRP Long Tube Header and Catted H-Pipe Kit is compatible with the stock cat-back so as long as you have the factory cat-back you can use an aftermarket axle-back. These headers will require a tune for a proper and safe operation of your engine.

I have the flowmaster outlaw series axleback exhaust. Since the pipes from the cat to the actual exhaust is still stock, will it fit my car or no?

    I knew these would make a difference, but didn't realize just how much of a difference it would make. The sound is incredible and doesn't have that loud rasp, it keeps a throaty tone all the way through the RPM range. I feel a significant pull in the higher RPMs after this install with BAMA tune. If you're on the fence about buying these, just pull the trigger.

    very nice fitment look great under the car. easiest way to install is to drop the sub frame you have so much more room. i also used the factor studs with the factor locking nuts so that there is no leaks. you have to shave the studs down a little for it to fit but other than that i would recommend doing it that way. sounds really good only issue i have is on high speed right turns they hit my steering shaft

    Worth every penny!

    I was on the fence for awhile whether or not I wanted to commit to these and man am I glad I did! If you're thinking of getting headers I highly recommend them. The sound is alone is worth it imo. If you're listening to videos on YouTube you're not doing yourself any favors, go out and listen to these in person. Videos do not do exhaust sounds any justice. I don't think there's much of a sound or performance difference between brands. Pick the brand you feel comfortable and pull the trigger, you won't be disappointed.
