    Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at Pypes polished shorty header for the 4L V6 motor found in the 2005-2010 Mustangs. So why would you want to use a shorty header vs a long tube header? Well for one, a shorty header is a great entry level header and will still be a solid upgrade over your ultra restrictive cast iron factory manifolds. Secondly, they’re going to be the more budget friendly option of the two, and install much easier, thanks to the fact that these shorty headers are a direct bolt on replacement meaning you won’t have to modify your factory mid pipe like you would if you used a set of long tubes. So even though you won’t make quite as much power using a shorty header vs a long tube, the difference in power and sound vs your stock manifolds still make them a very popular choice with many 4.0L V6 owners out there. When first looking at this system from Pypes you’ll notice the whole system is made from 100% 304-grade stainless steel, and features 1/8 and 5/8th “ mandrel bent tubing to help improve that exhaust flow. Another thing I always seem to notice on Pypes products is their quality TIG welds, and the same is true on this setup, great penetration on both the flange welds and the collector welds as well, meaning a quality product that won’t be prone to failure down the road. That polished finish is a nice touch as well because even though these headers aren’t immediately obvious as soon as you pop the hood, you still get a good view of them when taking a closer look under the hood, and that’s sure to add to any engine bay. Doing the install on any set of headers can be a little intense, so it’s best to set aside a full day just to tackle the job. A lot of you on the site have also pointed out how well these Pypes shorties actually fit, making the install go a lot easier. So in the end, what you can expect from using Pypes polished shorty headers, is a slight bump in both power and sound, especially if you choose to pair your shorties up with some other form of exhaust modification. Be sure to check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Free Up Horsepower and Torque. Replace those heavy and restrictive cast iron factory exhaust manifolds with a set of Pypes free flowing, lightweight, stainless steel shorty headers that will allow your Pony to breath better than stock for more power.

    Durable Construction. Manufactured from 1-5/8" mandrel bent 304 stainless steel tubing for strength and improved airflow, these Pypes Shorty Mustang Exhaust headers feature a one piece 3/8" thick header flange for additional strength and an OEM fit. Pypes headers are then polished to a bright finish for impressive under hood styling.

    Application. Designed as a direct bolt on, these Pypes Shorty Headers will bolt straight up in the stock location to the factory Mid-Pipe without any modifications on the 2005 to 2010 4.0L V6 to improve exhaust flow and sound.

    Technical Note: Check local ordinances to ensure that this Pypes product is legal for use in your state.

    Do you have to have duel exaust? i am very new to this and want to have something tha looks cool when i lift the hood

    newkidonthablock

    • Nope, these do not require dual exhaust for installation. These headers will replace your stock manifolds and bolt right to the factory mid-pipe without any modifications!

    What is the difference? I know people say that theres some horsepower and more rumble. But how much different is it? If not then do long tubes work on true duals?

    Glitch

    • HP wise its only a few. MAYBE +15 MAX! but sound wise its a MASSIVE difference. long tubes work but take the place of your cats. if you're in a state that requires them you can get in a LOT of trouble for it. i have the JBA headers and BBK conversion on MY 05 V6 and they are AMAZING!

    Chris

    Do you need to use a torque wrench to install these or would a regular ratchet work? If so, what should the wrench be set to?

    Collins

    • We would recommend the use of a 3/8" Torque wrench as well as a13mm & 15mm Open-end wrench for installation.

      Louder Sound for a V6

      I installed these along with the Pypes cat back dual exhaust system. While the exhaust gave my car a deeper throatier sound I believe that the headers amplified the sound. I like the added power and the way these look under the hood especially after they became seasoned. Installation wasn't too difficult, would have definitely been easier with a lift but is doable in a driveway.

      Amazing headers

      these headers install wize not to bad drivers side way harder getting it off and on may need special tools like cross feet for bolts connected to headers. And probably have to remove some stuff for the drivers side headers to remove them easy You definitely want a full day for these and some one else with you that knows what there doing But performance and sound wize are amazing smoother shifting noticed alittle power gain sound wize is deeper and louder

      Nice Header

      Look great, improved sound a tad before finishing with dual exhaust and then sound is great. Easy fit. The hard part is removing the driver's side header. Passenger side a breeze. I used the installation instruction posted on the American Muscle site that was posted by a user. Much easier than the Pypes instructions.

      The Pipers Pypes

      This is a solid upgrade versus the stock manifolds. I run them with pypes true dual exhaust setup, and they sound great! I felt substantial power gains when I paired them with a tune. 100 would recommend as entry level headers. P.s. the headers turn to a polished golden look after being exposed to a running engine's heat. I think it looks kinda cool.

      Pypes

      Was a little harder than I thought, but mostly because the old studs wouldn't come out. They just broke at the star patern . Also make sure to take apart exhaust in the middle if having to go over the studs.

      Check Engine

      I recently replaced the engine in my 2007 Mustang V6 (4.0). The only thing different is that I had Pypes Shorty Headers (professionally) installed. About three weeks later the "check engine" light came on. I took the car back to the repair shop and he replaced all the parts that came up on the computer! About $650.00 later he told me that he couldn't figure It out. He said the only thing he did different was put the headers on. I then took the car to a Ford Dealer. He said I could either put the stock manifold back on or install a "Tuner". I want to keep the headers on! What do you suggest?

      Headers fit perfectly. Small amount of bluing initially, but they still look great after several months of use. Car feels stronger, though I haven't timed it yet.

      Paired with a pypes exhaust is so nice

      I paired these headers with the true dual exhaust with the mid mufflers and it's as close as you can get to a v8. I still need to tune it and then dyno it but the gains are there.

      Pypes horty headers

      End result is pretty good. At idle I haven't noticed a lot as far as an increase in loudness but while on the throttle you can definitely notice a deeper louder grumble. The shop that installed it has no complaints but they did use the original bolts and gave me back the ones that came with the headers. A noticeble low end gain so far (have only driven it like 12 miles since install). They look pretty sweet under the hood too. As usual AM offered a good product.

      Awoken

      Had a shop install these headers and when I went to pick up the car and I heard it start for the first time I got a huge grin on my face. I live these headers. I feel like the car definitely has more torque on the low end and it made the exhaust note much deeper. They've even turned blue after about a year.

      Be cautious!

      These we supposed to be direct replacement for stock exhaust manifold. Exhaust flange was good, Accessory mounting holes - big fail. The fitment was awful for the coil pack bracket large bolt. The same on the fuel rail on the other side. Had to modify the holes to get the bolts installed. I will say, barring that they are quite nice and sound great.

      Beautiful

      You can really hear and feel the difference when you first fire up the engine, instructions aren't that clear. I'm really starting to think I put the flange bolts upside down if I'm not mistaken the long side goes to the bottom right? If so I need to wait to cool down that monster and flip them finish is amazing especially when it's seasoned in. If only there was a support line or number could call when we run into problems, still a great product though

      Meh

      After reading some reviews it seemed like it would take a long time to get them installed but I got em installed in my 2006 v6 mustang in 2hrs, the kit was missing a couple bolts like the longer bolt for the dipstick tube but I made it work. The egr tube was probably the hardest thing to get out because of the screw in part for the factory manifolds. I honestly can't tell any difference in sound or performance of the car but they look nice. So I guess there's that
