Mustang Shorty Headers 1964-2018
Your Ford Mustang is one impressive specimen and is capable of reaching horsepower and torque totals in which your non-muscle car friends can only experience on their favorite video game consoles. As impressive as your Mustang is as soon as it rolls off the assembly line, your pony car leaves the factory with plenty of room for improvement in a number of different areas.
The stock exhaust system, in particular can be rather restrictive. The setup from the factory contains an exhaust manifold, which utilizes just one channel, and can lead to a great deal of back pressure among other common issues. In an effort to improve exhaust flow, many performance drivers replace those pesky manifolds with headers, which unlike manifolds, feature six individual primaries for each cylinder, which all travel into one collector pipe.
When it comes to Mustang headers, pony car owners have two choices: shorty or long-tube headers. Although long-tube headers are the choice for many performance drivers, Mustang shorty headers offer plenty of benefits as well! Ford Mustang shorty headers are ideal for turbo setups and if you are generally operating at lower-to-mid-range power in reference to your rpm band. They may not be as robust as long-tube headers, but Mustang shorty headers can supply more low-end torque than a stock manifold will.
Unlike long-tube headers, which can be difficult to install, swapping out the exhaust manifold for new shorty headers is a relatively simple process. While the addition of long-tube headers requires a complete overhaul of your entire exhaust system, installing Mustang shorty headers allows you to retain some of your components from the factory, including the catalytic converter. Similarly, because of their overall dimensions, shorty headers stay relatively close to the engine, which eliminates the chances of bottoming out if you have lowered your muscle car.
A new set of shorty headers can breathe new life into your muscle car while making the vehicle more fuel efficient at the same time. Whether you are looking for modest performance gains or if you simply wish to increase your exhaust system’s efficiency, you cannot go wrong with new Ford Mustang shorty headers!
