You can't go wrong with Long Tube Headers, You'll probably need to change your X pipe, to one that matches with the Header. I can't give you more specifics, because I have a 4.6 instead of a 5.0. But the performance you'll receive is unbelievable. Be more concerned with the performance, more so than with numbers.

Re: long tube headers on 2012 5.0

yes I agree and thanks i am wanting to put the headers on and get rid of the x pipe and just make some short pipes to get to my cat backs exhaust, i love the loudness of the x pipe just dont like how it makes it blat more out the back, it sounds like the old glass packs...im looking for loud but a deep muscle tone? if thats possible?? lol

Perhaps you should check out H pipes instead. They give a more deep, lower Tone than the X pipe.

Re: long tube headers on 2012 5.0

yeah i may, i just hate paying 200.00 to 500.00 for 30.00 bucks worth of pipes? i can have a shop make some pipes probably for 50.00 bucks and be the same crap...it is nice buying stuff and bolting it on but if you dont like it your stuck with it, so im going to just make some and try that...its not rocket science..

Re: long tube headers on 2012 5.0

I contemplated long tubes for quite some time, unltimately I've passed them up in lieu of buying a house and will probably do FI first. however, I know of a low key business (but legitimate in all ways) that can get you a killer deal on long tubes and mid pipe, PM me if interested
