1965 Mustang Headers
If you want to open up the exhaust system on your Mustang to allow for more power, you’ve got to start at the source. That means replacing your factory exhaust manifold, or headers. The factory 1965 Mustang headers do not even out the exhaust pulses from your car, which can cause increased backpressure in your exhaust system. Upgrading to a set of short or long-tube headers from CJ Pony Parts will even out exhaust pulses, and thanks to larger precision shaped tubing, you’ll notice an instance increase in horsepower and throttle response. Your car will go faster, and it will sound amazing doing it.

Upgrade Your HeadersIt’s no secret that upgrading your Mustang’s headers will improve performance, but why is it that there are so many different options? CJ Pony Parts stocks nearly 50 different sets of performance 1965 Mustang headers because the headers you select need to fit your performance needs and work properly with the equipment that is already on your car, or will be paired with your new headers in the future.
The V8 1965 Mustang’s headers differ from those of the V6 1965 Mustang, CJ Pony Parts carries options that will fit both models, so make sure the set of headers you select is designed for use with your car’s engine.
The different lengths you will notice while shopping for a set of 1965 Mustang headers give you a choice between a more compact header designed to meet your exhaust system closer to your engine or a longer, more high-performance header that will deliver maximum horsepower at high rpm. If you want to install a set of long-tube headers, make sure that your car’s exhaust piping is designed to meet the collector (where the headers and exhaust piping connect) farther back.
Occasionally, a custom set of headers will require you to relocate some factory equipment so that the new header fits properly. If this is the situation with the headers you’ve selected, there’s a good chance that CJ Pony Parts stocks a redesigned bracket or mounting point for that part. For example, the Scott Drake slave cylinder lowering bracket will move your car’s power steering pump an inch lower to accommodate a more aggressive header design.
There’s a good chance that the factory hardware on your 1965 Mustang’s headers has seen better days. That’s why at CJ Pony Parts we stock the entire host of hardware you’ll need when upgrading the headers on your car. In many cases, hardware is already included when you make the purchase of a quality performance header, but if it’s not, be sure to grab a set of header bolts and a collector reducer if necessary to ensure a fast and smooth installation.
