    Review & Install Video

    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.

        to work with orginal cats?

        • These headers are a direct replacement for your stock manifolds and you can reuse your stock mid-pipe with cats no problem. Hope this helps!

        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

        • 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?

        • 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!

            Great header just gave me some problems

            It's really high quality and has a little affect on the sound but it's hard to notice, I'm assuming mostly because I still have cats and a single exit exhaust. Also having the extra bolt holes compared to the stock and other aftermarket headers gave me some trouble as one of the bolt holes aren't used and was hard to get a bolt in. And better instructions would've been nice

            They arrived with all the parts and no visible damage. Haven't put them on yet because the old ones are ON THERE. waiting for access to a lift but the detailed instructions on the website allow you to do it by yourself without a lift if you can get the old bolts off.

            No change in sound

            Spent close to $700 to buy these and get them installed. And it sounds the exact same. Huge waste of money. Only way to make sound out of these engines is longtubes and deleting cats. My exhaust setup is pypes true dual x pipe conversion kit, slp loudmouths and pypes shorty headers. And it sounds pretty much the same when I had my Mac boom tube axleback.

            Decent headers

            The only bad thing I have to write about this product, is that they did not fit the factory studs. We tried for 3 hours putting them on at different angles and getting them to fit. We had to drill bigger holes in the flange in order to get it to fit, other than that. They look great and sound good as well!

            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?
