Yeah I haven't found them anywhere. Will the lock tight work with out seizing the nut to the bolt? Did u use the stock bolts? I'm going to use the stock gaskets will this be good?

DO NOT USE RED LOC-TITE!! Green will prolly work. Blue will come off with out heat, and will hold better then green.. To avoid most issues now and later make sure both head and bolt threads are clean..

Re: Need locking header bolts! Anyone know where?

THis should help.

2011 Ford Mustang GT Intake And Exhaust Installation - Inhale And Exhale - Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Magazine


No bolts..We have studs. From 5.0 magazine.



Header installation is essentially the same for either the short- or long-tubes. Disconnect the battery to avoid arcing your tools on the starter motor, remove as many nuts from the upper row of header studs as you can from the top of the engine compartment

Which makes since. I remember shops telling me this now. That they used the lock tight so they would not come lose.

If you use factory studs and nuts no locktite should be needed. Also only use oem gaskets. I used all new studs and nuts where possible(had to use 3 stainless bolts that came with headers where it was to tight for studs) and oem gaskets. Going on 3 years no leaks.

Re: Need locking header bolts! Anyone know where?

Need 10 total header / retro catback combined for the deal.

Stainless Works has put together a group buy! 15% off of the 2011 5.0 headers with offroad pipe / catted pipe and the 2011 retro catback for the 5.0 / GT500

Orders should start shipping once we get to the 10.

Visa, MC, Discover, and Paypal (no paypal fees)

In addition!

Because Team Beefcake Racing loves the 2011 5.0's so much!

We are going to eat the cost of shipping as well!!

Thats right! 15% off plus free shipping!

Part #'s

M11HDRCATX, M11HDRORX, M12CB3

Beef

513-478-1965

Catted header part # M11HDRCATX lists for $1550 plus shipping.

Group buy will be $1317.50 and free shipping.

Offroad header part # M11HDRORX lists for $1390 plus shipping.

Group buy will be $1181.50 and free shipping.

Retro Catback lists for $850

Group buy will be $722.50 and free shipping.

Also for the guys that don't want to run cat's, but are worried about reselling down the road / e check, etc., the beautiful thing about the SW system is the cats are independent from the system.

You could buy the catted system, and for $37.49 more, the offroad slip ins could be included. You could put the slip in pipes in, but have the cats on standbuy when you need them. 4 clamps and you can swap out!!!

ANDDDDDD

If you buy a header / catback combo! I will include a $75 coupon for a tuner kit supercharger purchase, and a $100 coupon toward a complete kit supercharger purchase, good until June of next year! That is off our already super low prices!!!!!!

List

YOu call him tell him found better price he will beat it.

WoW.. That seems like a boat load of money for headers and an XPiPe, IMO. Guess everything about the new 5.0L including the car is too expensive fir my taste..

The headers and exhaust do cost a little. But really same priced as a Camaro or mods on a Challenger.

Heck when I did headers, x pipe and cat back on my G8 it cost me over $2300.

SHEEEIT!!! Try looking for these parts for 2008+ M3, need to take out a second mortgage to fit that bill. This is the main reason I switched from my 11 M3 to the 5.0. You can do a full suspension, Headers and full exhaust, CAI, rims and tires, tune and some appearance mods for what some of the exhausts on the M3 costs alone. The Mustang is far from being expensive to mod.

He has a Vortech T trim. Full bolt ons. He has a stall also. He had a Boss on it took off now adding back on since he got a bigger stall. He now has a built engine with 10.5:1 compression.

Remember the Vortech and Paxton are made by same people and really are the same blower. The PAxton is actually bigger blower that comes with the kits with no upgrades. Regular Vortech is good to about 800whp the paxton is good to about 900whp.

They are both pony cars but after that they don't have much else in common. What I mean is the entry fee on the M3 is higher then 40k right? Which is premium GT money.. Yea you your right I'm sure.. Last year my pop sold his 911 Carrera 4S, and had a lot of Ruff parts on that car. So ya relative to a car like those yea.. Relative to mustangs through out history.. Not so much.. Like I said before they, the new 5.0L's are great don't get me wrong.
