Bbk short headers

Yankee5.0,

We've had a lot of good feedback with BBK's headers, plus we've used them on a few Project Cars without any issues. They make a great product for an affordable price, plus they have awesome customer service.

That being said, I think you're better off with getting LT headers, instead. You'll see a much larger increase of power and sound with LT's. Plus, BBK makes a popular LT header for your 2012 GT!

If you have any other questions, let me know!

Shane

As mentioned previously, shorties are a waste of money. You should just shell out the little extra money for LTs. The factory headers are actually known to flow really well. I can't remember where I saw it, but shorties really only gain like 5hp. LTs gain ~15.

The stock tri-y manifolds on the 5.0 are pretty much factory shorty headers, to echo everyone else you will not have much increase with shorty headers alone, they're kinda like the CAI for these cars, looks pretty but that's about it

Like these guys said, do it once and be done. Get LT's if you want headers.

Exactly, it's the same amount of work to install either one, but the LT's will definitely cost more

My comment on this concerns exhaust fit meant in general, of BBK products. I do not have their shorty headers BUT I have the X-pipe and then I added the cat delete pipes later on. I've had those cat delete pipes and x-pipe on and off trying to adjust out the misalignment like 3-4 times. I ended up welding them up.
Considering that the stock exhaust flows as well as shorty's anyway, I'd stay with it until you go to LT's.
