    I currently have SLP Loudmouth 2's on right now with stock mid pipe and manifold. I am thinking about purchasing BBK LT headers and BBK H-pipe. Does anyone have this exhaust combination or do you think this would sound good?

    I went to the dealership after installed Bolra S type catback system. It was okay. I'm looking into header for my next mod. I wonder installation of header void my warranty or just void header part only. Thank you.

    Sorry about the vague title, but there was really no way around it as I have a few questions. I recently had long tube headers installed on my car, and it appears I have an exhaust leak (a ticking noise from the exhaust tipped me off). I know that the parts are brand new and it's not likely...

    Hello. I would like to put headers on my Boss 351. I have always run stock exhaust manifolds on all the '71s I have had, so my experience is limited on headers. Which ones are best, shorty or long tube? Ceramics? Brand? Are there serious engine compartment heat issues with headers? Just...

    So I'm in the middle of installing some new headers on my 2014 Mustang 3.7, and I have just got the old headers off. However, in the process of taking off the stock manifolds, the studs that stick off also unscrewed with the nuts holding on the stock manifold. I was able to screw them all back...

    Hi guys, Just purchased a 1970 coupe. All numbers matching, needs a new exhaust manifold. Wondering if I should put a header on, it is a 250 inline 6 cylinder. Saw from Mustangs Unlimited I could put on one with single or a double exhaust outlet. Currently have single exhaust with standard...

    Okay so for some background, I was replacing the header gasket because the original had finally blew out. While getting the headers off I removed each of the spark plugs, that were in the way. (5,6,7) I marked each one to make sure I wouldn't confuse them. Number 7 gave me a little trouble, but...

    I finally ordered some American Racing Headers for my 2005 GT but when I was installing the driver side the front bolt hole seems to be off by about 1/16 or more of an inch, what would be the best thing to do for this? Any advice is valued at this point, thanks in advance!

    The header on my passenger side has been leaking, i believe its a loose or broken gasket. How can i change it? and would it be best to go with Mr. Gasket steel gaskets?

    Hey all, I'm looking to make some power/rpm gain on my 2.3L N/A. I just want to be sure that this all fits accordingly. First the header - Under the Chasis Header: Esslinger Online Store I don't see any reason why it wouldn't fit, but just covering my bases. Will I need an O2 sensor bung...

    After spending the last 7 hours working on my pony to try and replace my rusted exhaust manifold, I finally got it done! (Phew!) Now... the biggest trouble I had was trying to remove the EGR bolt that was on my original header. I ended up having to take a torch to it to loosen it up and by the...

    Okay so I'm 19, not super-mechanically inclined (yet). So this may seem stupid, but what do I need to replace here? The pipe, or my header? My exhaust has a lot of problems already =/ so I want to fix one of them. So help?
