1968 Mustang Headers

Headers

There’s something mesmerizing about a set of red-hot glowing headers bolted to a finely tuned motor. As the first place that exhaust gasses go on their trip towards your muffler, the headers on your car play a crucial role in how it performs and the way it sounds. By replacing your stock exhaust manifold with one of the many 1968 Mustang headers that we carry, you’ll allow for more rapid expansion of exhaust gasses and a more even flow of exhaust pulses. That means a big increase in power and torque, a motor that is freer to rev and a sound that will turn heads when you turn the ignition.

1968 Headers

1968 Mustang Headers

It’s no secret that a new set of headers is the perfect complement to your custom exhaust system. All of the 1968 Mustang headers we carry are beautifully made and will help your car perform its best. You’ll want to take a look at the different types of headers before you make your selection. Selecting one set versus another will determine how your car is tuned and the type of exhaust you can use:

• Shorty headers: Short-tube headers — or “shorties” as they are often called — offer most of the performance gains you’ll see from a longer set of headers, but they allow you to retain more space in your engine bay. By using a collector that comes right off of the primary pipes, your exhaust system’s head pipe will mount up closer to the primaries themselves.
• Mid-length headers: The most common type of headers, these options typically place the collector in a location that is similar to where the collector on your stock 1968 Mustang’s headers used to be. Check out the different options we have available in ceramic-coated black or white to reduce heat. If you’re looking for some unique underhood styling, mount up a set with square primaries.
• Long-tube headers: These are the big guns. Long-tube headers are typically found on the highest performance cars or race cars, but that doesn’t mean you want to use them no matter what. The longer runner length is optimized when your motor is working at high RPM, so consider the trade-off in mid-range power before you select a set of long tubes. When you do decide to mount up a pair, make sure your exhaust piping is cut shorter to accept the placement of the collector.
• Tri-Y headers: Like their mid-pipe cousins, headers are available in several designs to cater to different tuning styles. The tri-Y design has become popular because it is a great way to produce more mid-range torque. Unlike long-tube headers that are optimized for maximum RPM, these will perform their best from idle to the upper middle of the rev range. That makes a set of tri-Y headers a great choice for a street car that you want to have an accessible, meaty power band.
