    Review & Installation Video

    Dave with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me an item that’s highly reviewed and highly rated by our customers. It’s the Pypes polished shorty headers for the 2005 – 2010 Mustang GT. A shorty header is a great entry level header, especially when compared to your factory manifold. The factory manifolds are cheap, one piece cast iron designs, and they are easy to manufacture and extremely restrictive. In fact, they retain heat, they restrict exhaust flow, and look rusted and ugly before you even know it. A shorty header is going to go directly in place of your factory exhaust manifold, meaning it is going to go into your same exact location, it’s going to have the same length as your factory manifold, and bolt up to the head on one side and your factory midpipe on the other, meaning there are no other items to purchase and no other modifications required unlike when you run the long tube headers. Unlike your bulky and restrictive factory exhaust manifold, these Pypes polished shorty headers, they’re made from stainless steel, they’re 1 5/8” diameter and they’re guaranteed horsepower and sound the moment you bolt them onto your Mustang. Since these are going to allow the motor to expel the exhaust gases faster from the car, you can count on these delivering not only more sound, but about 8-10 more horsepower, with no tuning required. A common question our customer services reps get all the time is “Hey, if I pick up a shorty style header, do I need a shorty mid pipe?” The answer is no, a shorty style mid pipe is only utilized when you pick up a long tube header. A shorty style header is going to go ahead and use your factory length mid pipe to ease installation. Just by looking at these headers, you can tell they’re a high quality product. They’re polished to a shine, and they’re mandrel bent, to guarantee you’re going ot get top notch looks, and performance out of these headers. Pypes has taken a lot of time to do in house testing on these headers, which are made from 304 stainless steel, they’re making sure they’re going to outshine, outflow, and outlast your factory exhaust manifolds, and like all other manifolds from Pypes, they’re backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The high polished shine is going to come in handy when trying to view the header, it’s located way down in the engine bay and can be a bit of a bear to view, as well as to work on, so if you do leave the install to the professionals there’s no shame in that. If you think you’re up to the challenge, I’d recommend you leave yourself a full afternoon if not a full day, and I would certainly lay out the tools beforehand to make it that much easier. You’ll want to have a full socket set with extensions, you’ll want to get some penetrating oil to get the factory manifold bolts off, you’re also going to want to have some gasoline remover to make sure everything is cleaned off before you install your new headers. Even though these headers are designed to bolt up to your factory mid pipe, we recommend you have the entire exhaust system upgraded at the same time to get yourself the maximum gains in flow, and the maximum gains in performance. I’ll tell you, by getting rid of the factory mid pipe and upgrading everything at once, you’ll absolutely notice a tone change by the added airflow. The Pypes polished shorty header comes with all the hardware and gaskets needed for installation, and it works well with your factory length mid pipe or aftermarket full length mid pipe, to add performance and sound to 2005-2010 3 valve Mustangs.

    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 GT 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 4.6L GT Mustang to improve exhaust flow and sound.

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

    Are these shory headers compatible with other exhaust manufacturers? Hello, I have a V8 2010 GT Premium. I recently just purchased a flowmaster axle back exhaust. I now would like to buy a set of chrome shorty headers and shortly there after a mid-pipe, but i am not sure if these (pypes) will work with other manufacturers? Should I stay consistent with Flowmaster for a complete exhaust? Any suggestions or recomendations you can offer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Rob

    UncleB

    • yes, you can mix and match....on my '05 gt i have bbk shorties, after market h-pipe, after marker over the axle mid pipe and slp axle back and it sounds muscular (not crackly like an x-pipe)...chrome headers will "blue" on you quickly...i use 304 stainless on my headers (409 stainless will blue, too) and most of my exhaust so it'll last forever (they'll never "blue" on you)....ceramic wil keep their color, too...whatever your budget and desires can handle....flowmasters make a good complete system for your car too

    Will this work with pypes off road H-Pipe? I was considering buying new headers and a mid-pipe for my 2007 GT/CS. The car already had Bassani mufflers already on the car when I got it. I like the sound of the exhaust that results from the combination of the Pypes off road H-Pipe and the Bassani mufflers. I was wondering if the Pypes shorty headers would work with the off road H-pipe and if it would keep the old school rumble that results from the H-pipe.

    • As long as you keep an H-pipe, you will get the old school rumble. Your exhaust will get slightly louder though.

    • Hi, These Pypes Polished Shorty Headers are designed to bolt up to either a factory or aftermarket mid pipe i suggest using the BBK Off-Road X-Pipe Item #56120 it is the largest diameter midpipe we offer it is 2-3/4" Here is the link http://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-offroad-xpipe-0510gt.html

      Great sound

      I added these along with the pipes x pipe and I love the sound. Definitely wasn't the easiest install and takes some patience but worth it. The hardware was a bit cheap and I had to drill one hole out to get all the bolts to fit but overall great set up.

      Nice looking, but does not fit !

      Received the headers and liked the finish a lot. Took them to my mechanic and got a call that the headers do not fit correctly. All the holes line up but one on both sides. We tried everything to get them on and no luck , so now I'm sending them back. Close but no cigar! Guess I will order some bbk headers.

      BIG Mistake...

      Purchased the Pypes Shorty Headers for our '07 GT. After numerous hours and steps to prepare for the install of the Pypes headers...discovered the threads on the driver's side header would not allow proper installation of the O2 sensor, which I decided might be solved at a local Ford dealer. However, attempting to install the passenger side header uncovered an even bigger problem: the bottom rear hole on the Pypes header flange was 1/8" off from the manifold stud - no way it would ever fit properly on the car. Final solution: Stuffed the Pypes headers back in the box, contacted AM, requested an RMA for the Pypes headers and purchased BBK Chrome Shorty headers, which I'll finish installing this weekend.

      Not terrible

      Install went easy enough. I had to bolt the headers to the stock manifolds and drill out the holes, as they were not correct. Once the holes were matched up I had no issues.

      Bad customer service

      Bought a pair of headers had them for little over a year when the right side cracked, called to have it replaced since they had a life time warranty wouldn't replace them bc I didn't have proof of purchase after a year, which shouldn't matter since they had lifetime warranty and the welds crack you would think they'd stand behind there product, instead they give you the run around

      If your're going to get this particular set of headers keep in mind there will be alot of fabricating that needs to be done to make them fit just right.

      good sound

      The headers look and sound good, but I had to drill the mounting holes a little bigger in order to get the headers to fit over the existing studs. Not sure about the performance gain because I just installed comp II cams as well. Car is definitely louder though.

      for the price not a bad buy

      I was replacing the clutch on my 06 gt. decided when the exhaust man, bolts to the cats broke. ill just go ahead and put headers on been wanting to anyways. well the old exhaust manifold studs broke off in the heads.... so i had a few options drill in the car or pull the motor and drill. i made the mistake and tried my luck on drilling with motor in the car. placed headers on i recommend having a second pair of hands, if you don't pull the motor. you will remove the steering links easy to do. and the ac compress easy and battery housing is recommended to remove as well. well got them in new clutch and trans in. went to fire it up and water in the exhaust. so new motor cause i made a stupid risk on drilling motor in car. put the headers on with the new motor placed back in the car in about 8 hours pulled and in so if you break a stud don't drill in car. but now the full review of the headers they are now a nice multi color which i think looks great with the blue i put on everything. you cant hardly see the headers unless you really look. they did change the sound of the car it is motor of a low smooth grawl. i have flowmaster 40s American thunder mufflers and car sounds awesome with them. as for power gain as i said i changed motors so cant say much of a difference maybe more in the mid but not in the top but i do wish i had the money for the long tubes, ill which one but these are a great to start with. no there not tuned leght but i haven't ever noticed a diff with tune or not in shorty headers

      Aggravating

      Car gets and sounds great, however, a few issues. The bolts did NOT line up between the header holes and the ones in the block. I had to get a drill bit and make larger holes in order for every bolt to fit. Even so, the header rubs against my steering shaft terribly. There's very little clearance. I'm hoping new mounts will fix this problem.

      Horrible fitment

      Installed these and the steering shaft is hitting the headers. Moved the motor over some still hitting and vibrating. Used washers on motor mounts to raise it off the header and it helped a little but caused a huge vibration now. I had o/r x pipe and slp loudmouth and these headers quietened my car down. It sounds like I have the stock cats back on it. As for the power hard to tell a huge difference
