1969 Mustang Headers

Headers

Sure, an upgraded muffler will open up your car’s exhaust system a little bit. But if you’re intent on freeing up some real sound and fury, you’ll want to invest in a quality set of headers. When combined with one of our cat back exhaust systems, a quality set of headers will produce an exceptional increase in sound and power at a great value. We carry several different types of 1969 Mustang headers, in a number of different configurations. Ditch that restrictive exhaust manifold and let your pony car breathe. You’ll know what a difference you’ve made the very first time you fire it up!

1969 Headers

Common Questions About 1969 Mustang Headers

With over 50 different 1969 Mustang headers available in our inventory, you might be asking yourself what sets each one apart. The short answer is they’re for use with different exhaust packages and mounting styles, but there are some more detailed differences as well. Common questions about header design and features include:

• Why are they ceramic coated? Many of the 1969 Mustang headers that we stock use a ceramic coating to reduce heat. Exhaust gases are extremely hot. To help keep intake temperatures as low as possible and reduce wear on other engine parts such as the headers themselves, they come coated with a material that’s designed to shed heat quickly. If you purchase a set of headers that aren’t coated, you can still help them shed heat by wrapping them.
• How are these different from an exhaust manifold? Headers are different from an exhaust manifold because they use a dedicated runner for each combustion chamber. This means that rather than mixing and causing turbulence that can slow the flow of exhaust from your engine, each exhaust pulse can exist smoothly and enter your exhaust system. The smoother flow creates the custom sound and improved power — the reasons why we love headers!
• Do I want short, mid or long-tube headers? It can be confusing because of the wide selection of 1969 Mustang headers available, but the most common designs are mid-tube headers. This style will typically fit your engine bay without rubbing or contacting other parts, which you want to avoid because of the extreme temperatures these parts can reach. If you can’t clear other parts, a set of short-tube headers can make the job easier. Long-tube headers are typically for race applications and often not designed for use on the street.
