1988 Headers

Shorty, Long Tube or Unequal Headers

Because the stock 1988 Mustang headers don’t offer the most reliable performance, installing new headers in your Mustang can give you the extra power and fun you’ve always wanted. Depending on what type of headers you install, you could potentially see power gains at different RPM bands.

Shorty headers deliver more power and torque in lower RPMs, and they’ll also evenly distribute fumes from your engine and into your exhaust system. But there’s not just one kind of shorty headers — in fact, we carry a huge variety from top name brands in the industry so you can take your pick of the best.

In general, equal-length headers funnel fumes from the engine efficiently for better performance gains. Compared to unequal length 1988 Mustang headers, the expelled gas pulses from equal length headers are less likely to run into one another as they are routed to the collector.

Still, unequal headers are generally more cost-effective and easier to install. This is great for any Mustang owner who’s worried about initial costs, though it won’t deliver the high-performance results that come with equal headers. But if you’re looking for maintenance or affordability, unequal headers are your best bet.

Installing Headers in a 1988 Mustang

Each type of 1988 Mustang header will require a different type of installation. Installing long tube headers in a 1988 Mustang can prove to be a challenging fit, but most Mustang enthusiasts agree the additional effort required is well worth the end result.
