- All necessary mounting hardware

This high-quality pair of Scott Drake, aftermarket Tri-Y headers comes with (2) black, Tri-Y headers, 2 and 1/2 to 2-inch collector/reducer cones plus all necessary gaskets and mounting hardware. They are sold as a pair for the driver and passenger side and fit both automatic and manual transmissions. The 16-guage tubes are CNC mandrel bent to increase exhaust flow through the headers and out through the exhaust system. They are meticulously installed in an engineered welding jig for a perfect fit. This pair of headers mimics the traditional Tri-Y design in appearance and style with subtle changes to enhance its ability to fit and to improve performance. All headers include 1 and 1/2-inch primaries, 1 and 3/4-inch secondarys and 2 and 1/2-inch collectors. Fits all 1965-1968 Mustangs with a 289 or 302 engine.

Please Note: 1964-1965 V8 mounts hold the engine approximately 1/4 inches lower that the mounts for 1966 Mustangs and up. You may have to shim your engine up (especially if the mounts are older and collapsed) in order to gain more shock tower clearance. It’s very unlikely that you would have to do this, but it can be done with some washers.

Tech Tip: Vehicles with Larger Bell Housings may need to slightly dimple the header pipe or remove material on the Bell Housing for Header Clearance.

*1965-1968 Mustangs equipped with power steering require a slave cylinder lowering bracket (SCB).
*Vehicles with a 164-Tooth Bell Housings may need to slightly dimple the header pipe or remove material on the Bell Housing for Header Clearance.

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following Mustang years:

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good headers for the price Had mine on my 66 for a couple years now. I installed them when I was swapping the old blown 289 for a 302. I didn't have any fitment issues with mine. Bolted them to the new engine before stabbing it in. The finish flaked off pretty quickly and they devolved light surface rust-probably less rust than the stock exhaust manifolds had on them. A couple of the plug wires are too close to the pipes and had to replace them due to being melted. A few Kevlar sleeves fixed that issue. Overall I'm happy with the purchase for the amount I spent, however I will replace them with something with a better finish at some point in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from scott drake headers Great headers if you have an automatic. These will not work with a t5 if you are using a clutch cable set up like me. : (

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I expected more from Scott Drake products Finishing up a 2 year rebuild/restomod on my '66 coupe (302), I ordered a set of the Scott Drake Tri-Y headers because they are recommended by CJ when using the Borgeson power steering conversion. My past experience has shown that headers often require dents and minor modifications to fit properly; however, no amount of dings or minor dents would make these pipes fit; where the collector goes past the bellhousing required flattening the collector over 1/2' on the passenger side and 5/8" on the drivers side to get the flange to lay flat on the head without contact to the bell housing. I could have lived with that but when the engine was lowered the final bit on to the motor mounts and I found that the headers are wedged against the shock towers on both sides, well, that was just too much. Not only are the pipes worthless to me without pounding more huge dents into them but I am out the cost of the ceramic coating I had put on them as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected These headers required modification to use with a stock equalizer bar set up on my 1965 mustang fastback. Also, your website suggests that if you buy these headers it reccomends buying the Scott drake 2 1/4" H pipes but the headers come with a 2 1/2" to 2" reducer which does not work with the suggested 2 1/4" H pipe. Website should be changed to suggest the 2" H pipe, not the 2 1/4" pipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Tried these on my 289. The right side header would not bolt flat to the head until i dimpled the header almost an inch to clear the bellhousing, by then, it was rubbing against the starter and i also noticed the collector was pointing directly at the transmission. These headers have been thrown in my scrap pile. What a waste of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and finish These tri y's fit great on my 1965 Mustang Fastback factory 4-speed car great welding and heavy header flange seals well the black coating is holding up so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit perfectly I have a 5.0 HO motor I have installed in a 67 convertible with a power steering box and 2 other ones I tried would not fit (not from CJ) the try-y fit perfectly

Rated 3 out of 5 by from headers fit ok but had to make adjustments I thought Scott Drake parts were made in America, these headers are from China, big let down

2 questions. 1) Does anyone make a Cast Iron Header for the SB Ford that is ported ? 2) If not will the Tri-Y fit a 64.5 wtih 306 going in and a factory 289 - 4 spd car. I'm trying to keep a factory look or at least ford items that could have been.

Asked by: Bshaw1961
These will work on a 64.5 289. We do not offer cast iron ported heads.

I have an early '66 GT350. Would these headers be a direct swap with the original Shelby headers? Would they line up with the existing h-pipe?

Asked by: ShelbyGT193
They should but there are never any fitment guarantees with reproduction parts.

1966 mustang with the T5 conversion using clutch cable. Also have the Borgeson power steering gear box installed. What issues might I have installing these headers? Read a comment that these would not work with the T5 with cable please clarify.

Asked by: Carpi
Your best bet is to use shorty headers.

I have a 1965 mustang coupe with a 289 and a Borgeson steering box.  Will these headers fit?  You answered a similar question for the stainless version but said they must lower the slave cylinder.  I'm confused - what slave cylinder.  

Asked by: Mt Pleasant97
Yes they will fit. The steering slave cylinder will need lowered using this bracket, https://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-slave-cylinder-lowering-bracket-1965-1970/p/SCB/

Asked by: Al8760
You should use a shorty style header with an aod.
