1999 Headers

How to Choose Between Shorty and Long Tube 1999 Mustang Headers

Before upgrading any part of your exhaust, think about what you’d like to achieve from your upgrade. Ask yourself:

• Is it more horsepower and torque?
• Are you looking for a more aggressive exhaust tone?
• Are you looking for an easy bolt on solution?
• Are you willing to work out a tricky installation to achieve higher gains in power and torque?

Determining what your overall goal is and what type of installation you’re willing tackle will help you narrow down and select the right 1999 Mustang headers. If power and torque is what you’re after, you should plan your Mustang exhaust upgrade using long tube 1999 Mustang headers.

If you’re looking for an easy bolt on upgrade to eliminate the restrictive stock exhaust while enhancing exhaust tone, you may prefer to plan your Mustang exhaust upgrade around short tube 1999 Mustang headers.

Pros and Cons: Shorty and Long Tube 1999 Mustang Headers

Each style of 1999 Mustang headers has its own list of benefits and drawbacks. Here are some of the pros and cons to consider when shopping for 1999 Mustang headers.

Long Tube Headers:

• Longer tube design creates better flow characteristics and increases scavenging effects, leading to greater horsepower and torque gains.
• The long tube design poses a much more complicated installation, often requiring the removal of the K-member and starter and often raising the engine up for installation – just to name a few installation challenges.
• Horsepower and torque gains tend to be in the higher RPM range.

Short Tube Headers:

• Short tube design creates a much easier bolt on installation.
• Wider tube design quickly and easily removes stock restrictions, increasing horsepower and torque in the lower RPM range.
• Short tube headers are less expensive than long tube for both the material and installation, but they are limited in performance gains.
