Product Description

Increased Performance
Adding a set of BBK long tube headers to your 1979-1993 Mustang is a great way to free up some horsepower and gain more torque from your 5.0 motor. These chrome headers replace your restrictive factory exhaust manifolds with wider diameter tubing that allows exhaust gases to flow quicker and easier resulting in improved performance. Each of these Mustang long tube headers has been designed and dyno tested at the BBK headquarters in Southern California for maximum performance. Results have shown an additional 15-20 rear wheel horsepower over stock.

High Quality Construction
This Mustang performance exhaust header kit has been CAD designed and dyno tested by BBK to ensure you get maximum power from your motor. These BBK long tube headers are manufactured from 1 5/8" mandrel bent tubing and feature a 3" collector with a leak-free ball and socket flange.

Fitment Notes

- BBK full length headers require one of the following BBK X-pipe or H-pipe to complete installation to the cat-back exhaust system. See the below recommended mid pipes from BBK:

BBK-1509 Catted H-Pipe
BBK-1510 Off-Road H-Pipe
BBK-1659 Catted X-Pipe
BBK-1660 Off Road X-Pipe

    5 Stars   This was awesome!
    By on 4/25/2014
    I had some help geeing these installed. The driver side went in from underneath with no issues at all. The passenger side header required lifting the engine up a bit to get it passed the starter mount and relocating an a/c line just a bit higher so it wouldn't touch the header. They were then mounted to the matching bbk H-pipe (took some manhandling). The finished product gave noticeable pick up throughout the rpm range and a beautiful sound. Well worth the time and effort. I live in the middle of nowhere in Canada, so I was very happy when all the parts and hardware arrived at my door in a timely fashion. Thank-you Latemodel Restoration.

    3 Stars   Were the hard wear
    By on 3/27/2016
    Image uploaded by Kevin J. After reading tons of reviews I was excited to purchase these long tubes for my notch. They fit like a glove. The right side went in from the top after removing the bell housing. The left side went in from the bottom. Very easy install. I was very disappointed I was missing header bolts an collector hard ware. Do to damage to box an throwing loose bolts on the box. I spend a lot of money with this company. I wish they would do a little better job on packing the parts. It's been 2weeks or better an still didn't get the missing parts they said was in the mail. Were my hard ware? Late model has been great other wise.

    4 Stars   Awesome fitment, great sound
    By on 6/13/2015
    I installed these myself in about half a day. Passenger side went in from the top with a little rocking of the enigne, drivers side went in from the bottom with ease. Only bad thing I would have to say about them is I wish it would have came with 2 studs for each side to help with making sure the gasket was placed on the head while putting the header on. It made it kind of a pain to have to hold the header up while trying to screw a bolt in and making sure the gasket wouldn't fall. Other than that. No gripes at all! Thanks latemodelrestoration for the fast shipping by the way!!!

    5 Stars   TOP NOTCH and Fit perfect!
    By on 10/24/2014
    Like some / most people have said and know, BBK headers and matching H or X fit perfectly together! My buddy and i just did these in my garage within 2 hours. Granted he's an ASE mechanic, and did most of the work but the headers fit absolutely right! We had to loosen the motor mounts and remove the starter to get them in, but after that it was a breeze!

    Hands down go with BBK for your exhaust!!!

    5 Stars   Great Fit.
    By on 9/24/2015
    Bought these back a couple years ago. If you don't have access to a lift, like I didn't, you're gonna have problems on installing them.
    Easiest way was to unbolt the motor mounts jack up the engine.
    Passenger side has plenty of room, driver side was really tight.
