    BBK LT install

    I have recieved alot of PM's, texts, and phone calls about the BBK LT header install I recently did for MMBLUE. I want to start by saying he got the headers basically for FREE, they came as a package with the engine he purchased.

    The BBK's bolt right up and basically require the same mods as a shorty install. Shim the DS motor mount, grind the steering shaft, etc. With the exception that you have to bend the tube going to cylinder #5 on the underside @ the steering shaft. These are true LT's and stop behind the transmission bellhousing (not a mid length like the Kooks) and the starter is WIDE OPEN. These header's can easily be found on the cheap at just about every modular site on the net.

    Here are the pics:

    Thanks for posting this Travis. I know you are partial to the shorties, but I know you are more partial to doing it on a budget. And this is on the cheap. Last night for Shats and giggles, I was looking around the net for BBK's and tons out there for 200 to 350. I hope a lot of others get in on this. Sounds great and more ponies for less bucks. That's what I'm talking about. BTW, EGR totally functional with Travis's EGR kit he sells.

    BBK LT for 03-04 Cobra/Mach 1 correct? Is there ones for manual or automatic? I know their old ones for pre-96 on the 5.0 pr motors listed manual or automatic.

    Even the new ones are under $600.

    Yes, 03~04 Cobra-Mach1, The automatic trans is what you want.
    I am also gonna look into the tube design on other LT's that are cheaper like MAC, Pacesetter, etc....

    If you saw the starter clearance you would be surprised, and the collectors line up EXACTLY with our stock H pipe, so if other's want to they can make their own MAUKAT system these will work.
    If you need any help PM me Landy.

    I'd stay stock or go shorties before I'd put pacesetter headers on my car. Their welds are horrible.

    I ordered a set of new Pacesetter uncoated incase I had to do some primary tube mods.. I've been too busy working on my other car I haven't had a chance to start on those. I'm glad you got to the BBK's because thats another economical option for us guys.

    I have read some posts about these BBK headers saying that they pit and rust like crazy, and sometimes leak.

    Does anyone here have these and have used them for a few years now without any issues? They certainly are a good option price-wise however I'd like to see that they also last.

    Was thinking about SW but obviously they're a little pricey. Hmmm...in-arresting...
