A total exhaust system overhaul of your Fox Body Mustang isn’t complete without new headers. As the first component to receive exhaust gases, performance headers will give your car extra horsepower and torque. By opening up exhaust flow right from the source, it will be less restrictive than the stock set-up. Plus, you can expect a louder, deeper sound.
Compact shorty headers work with any Fox Body build. Their small size means they fit without having to make any modifications. Shorty headers offer a moderate power increase and are usually legal in all 50 states.
Longtube headers offer more power. But they aren’t always emissions compliant. They're a better choice if you only use your Mustang on the track or drag strip. They’ll also take up more room under the hood. But the horsepower benefits can be well worth it.
Each header, regardless of type, attaches easily with direct bolt-on installation. You’ll feel the power when you put your foot down, especially if you’re adding other exhaust upgrades. New H-pipes or even a cat-back exhaust kit will help you get even more power out of your Mustang. If you’re simply looking for an affordable way to get the sound you want, axle-back kits are the way to go.
