shorty headers

Hey guys, I got a pypes true dual exhaust conversion done on my 06 and Ive heard mixed opinions about headers. I'm trying to keep everything as legal...boring I know...as possible, so it seems long tubes might be out of the question. Do shorty headers really give much improvement?

It depends on if you have many mods, if you are all stock and you put in true dual exhaust with headers you will feel a difference... If you are SC/TC then probably not... Lots of people say that headers deepen the sound ever so slightly... I can't speak from experience because I don't have a Mustang, hopefully someone else will chime in with help.

As far as mods go, so far I just have the dual exhaust with an x pipe and my cats still functioning normal, and I have a c&l CAI with a 93 octane bama tune

Definetly get headers so you will have full exhaust... The stock manifolds are restrictive also so you intake isn't reaching it's fullest capabilities... So yes, definetly get headers.

I was wondering if I should get the headers first or the exhaust system first? What would you guys recommend?

Most people get them at the same time since with the exhaust system you are looking for better airflow, the factory manifolds (headers) are really restrictive and are usually replaced at the same time.... You could go to a local exhaust shop and have them fabricate a whole new exhaust and whole new headers for around 500-600 instead of buying those name brands.

Re: shorty headers

I have no experience with that... I actually don't even have a Mustang yet, i plan on getting one soon... I love Mustangs though so i do plenty of research to make sure i know what i'm talking about. If you want to hear the difference from someone with experience them i'm not the guy to talk to lol. But i try to know as much as i could without owning one... Headers will make it sound a little deeper, but it usually doesn't change depending on the brand.
